Hi! We are Michael and Paola. We founded Culture Discovery Vacations in 2006 as a way to bring to others the experiences we had brought to our friends and family that visited us at our villa in Italy. When people travel, they usually see the sights, eat at recommended restaurants, etc., but when our friends and family visited us, we introduced them to local friends, showed them off the beaten path places, cooked together, ate at amazing local restaurants, and really brought them into the local lifestyle. Every time they would leave, they told us they had just experienced something transformational. They felt like they had found a new second home... a sense of belonging. They had never experienced anything like that kind of travel before.
