The My Bella Vita Difference
original heritage tour company in southern Italy
My Bella Vita Travel is the original heritage tour company in southern Italy and is the only licensed and insured company that specializes in southern Italy heritage tours.
Our team of bilingual Heritage Specialists has been trained and certified by our company and understands the intricacies of navigating the often difficult and confusing land of Italian genealogy.
With our tours, your family’s Heritage Specialist spends time getting to know your family. They organize and translate the information you have and prepare it for the local city hall. They spend a day in your ancestral town prior to your tour and talk to locals and city hall officials to track down the people and places important to your past.
Since 2007 our team has led hundreds of private ancestry tours and has helped travelers unravel mysteries such as
– why grandpa never talked about his old life … (because his “other” family was still in Italy!)
– why grandma left Italy alone … (because grandpa was in prison!)
– the reason no one knew of siblings … (because they all passed as children)
There is more to a successful ancestry tour than showing up and hoping for the best. Our team knows what paperwork you need to get the best results, how to negotiate with city officials and the various paths you can take to locate tricky information. Our team members’ close friends and family members include local mayors, ex-vice mayors, city hall employees, important village locals and more! We’re looking forward to sharing our local expertise with you.
