The Team

Andrew Gelis

Founding Director, Italy Touring

Ph: +61 3 9824 0898

My passion for Italy started some 10 years ago when our family travelled to this wonderful country.

From the amazing city of Rome, a “walking museum”, to the island of Sicily with its Greek and Arab influences to the walled city of Bergamo in the north, to Florence and magical Venice and so much more.

Its people, food, culture and style left a lasting impression. Recently I visited Italy again commencing in the far north at Lake Garda, visiting the Lake districts driving through Tuscany and Umbria, Naples and numerous places in between.
