If you love having your experiences abroad customized to your needs and desires, consider My Bella Vita Travel, which offers personalized, small group and individual excursions to Italy’s Calabria region. Located in the southwestern toe of the Italian “boot,” and less traveled by North Americans than many other areas of the country, Calabria’s gorgeous landscape includes the Apennine Mountains and more than 500 miles of coastline edging the Tyrrhenian and Ionian seas.
