I'm food lover by nature and also a native of Abruzzo. Like my grandparents, I've always been going to the weekly farmers market to buy vegetables, fruit, cheeses and cured meat. As well as being an official Tour Leader recognised by the Abruzzo Region, I'm the founder of Experience BellaVita, a company that promotes sustainable tourism experiences in the less touristic areas of Italy, in Abruzzo. With this experience, I want to take you to discover the most ancient farmers market in Abruzzo, meet the local producers and taste their excellent products. 5* Review ''Marino knew everybody and was super proud to show us his town.
