The Project of VesuvioTour

The project of VesuvioTour has started in the Bay of Naples (from which the name), kissed by the Mediterranean sun, and into my eyes still the most beautiful, fascinated and attractive place, where in few kilometers stunning landscape surrounded by the deep blue of the sea, an immense archaeological heritage, excellent food and warm weather mix each other so good!


But the world is our playground, right? So I started to search for new destinations following my philosophy of tourism: I believe in a return to authenticity and traditions against impersonal and bustle big hotel and mass tourism. We need a time out from the velocity and the stress of our daily life, fortunately there are lots of marvellous and unique accommodations with charme available! Our aim is to find as many as possible to propose them to our guests. Last but not least, a huge warm thank to the team of VesuvioTour: without your passion and effort VesuvioTour would not be the same!

"We have personally visited the accommodations and selected only the one with these features: a welcoming owner, immersed in a lovely and quiet environment, convenient price/quality, organic food or wine production, good position for your excursions."

Gianluca Pesenti Campagnoni

Owner, contract manager, dreamer

I am a graduate in Sociology, passionate about writing and travel, which has always sought after a new culture to explore and new territory to cross, following an inner need to grow throughout meeting many different people around the world. I believe is still possible to find authentic spots where traditions will become part of a journey, small hand-picked accommodations with charming decorations, own by friendly owners, set in a perfect location, which makes our trip so special. My motto: little is more!

I believe that a trip should always represent the opportunity of coming in contact with the people of the place, their culture, in search of a point to enrich oneself. I believe in a return to simplicity and traditions against the fast paced bustle of the city. We need a time out from the velocity of city stress and fortunately the region of Campania conserves all the places which have been little overrun by masses tourism, yet still rich in history, fascination and immersed in verdant green.

Duygu

Property manager, Rate manager

Ciao!
My name is Duygu and I have been working at VesuvioTour since a few years now. With lots of enthusiasm, I advise clients and organize holidays in Italy, the land of my dreams! I manage to do this by transforming all my passion into my work.

How did my passion for Italy start?

Hard to tell with words. I always wanted to go to Italy and the first time I was there, I felt home immediately, as if I had been there before. The combination of lights, colors, and scents create a specific atmosphere where I feel at home.

After my second visit to Italy, I decided to learn the language, and followed courses in different levels. I picked up the language without much effort, and I was even offered one month’s scholarship to study in Perugia. It was an amazing experience in one of my favourite areas! In the meantime I speak, eat and live an Italian lifestyle, with no regrets!

How did I land at VesuvioTour?

To cut a long story short; I was looking for something where I could translate my passion and feel happy. After searching for a long time, I finally came across VesuvioTour where I could use my Italian language skills and culture. By working here, I have learnt a lot more about the country, which makes it even more interesting and fun for myself but also for my clients, because I am able to transform my passion into my work.

I greatly look forward to helping you organise a fantastic trip to Italy!

Jaleesa

Junior Account manager, Sales assistant

Hola a todos! My name is Jaleesa Latupeirissa, 24 years old and I am passionate about Spain. I am working on expanding to this beautiful country where the sun always shines. In 2015 I finished my studies ‘International Business & Languages’. I have lived and worked in different places in Spain and fell in love with the country; the people and the food!

The lovely people, the gastronomy and the art is what makes this country so rich. I would therefore like to transmit my passion which I feel for Spain to the clients.
An authentic journey of culture, gastronomy and nature is what Vesuvio Tour can offer you. For me, a holiday far away from mass tourism is a unique combination of emotion, education and pleasure!

Saskia Balmaekers

Blogger, writer

Saskia Balmaekers (born in 1980) became addicted to Italy during her very first encounter in Rome. It was thanks to the scents, delicious food, busy gesticulating people and the language that this happened. Starting in Rome, she continued to explore the rest of Italy; from Napels and the Amalfi Coast in the south, to Milan and Venice in the north.

The Italian language was no longer a secret for Saskia. After an intensive summer course in Florence, she followed different types of studies at the Istituto Italiano di Cultura in Amsterdam and at the language school Leonardo da Vinci in Siena.

Saskia aims to target as many people as possible to communicate just how beautiful (and delicious) Italy actually is. Since February 1st 2010, she writes daily on Ciaotutti.nl about her Italian experiences. Besides that, she writes books and e-books about Italy. Hopefully in this way, the passion will also grow in The Netherlands, and la dolce vita feeling will become a second nature here!

Paul Janssen

Blogger, unstoppable traveler

Paul Janssen (born in 1965) is a fan of Italy since his youth. He was modestly fed the love for Italy at that time during a six week summer holiday at Lake Garda and the lake area above Rome.

He collects addresses of nice B&B’s and Agriturismos, and unique spots throughout Italy. He has visited all the regions at least once, but his preference lies in the lower part of the boot. His Italian wishlist is still ever so long. He tries to communicate this through entertaining, laid-back blogs. Friends and family can use his advice and information free of charge; as long as he approves it. Some tips are too unique to share with the whole world.

‘Over the years, I have visited many of the Southern regions, and slowly this area of Italy has stolen my heart away. Obviously it is a lot messier and more chaotic there, but I think that people there are not aware of the true beauty and possibilities of this beautiful country’.

Italy still takes me by surprise and we have now declared our love for one another. The passionate inhabitants of Napels, the blinding beauty of the Amalfi coast, the peaceful splendor of the green Cilento, the purity of the Basilicata, the overwhelming nature and culture of Sicily, the tranquil villages and beaches of Calabria, and the colourful multifaceted Puglia offer infinite beauty! L'Italia, il paese più bello del mondo!

Sasha Kalashnikova

Photographer

I am a professional photographer based in Amsterdam. When I first met Gianluca, he told me about his project of sustainable tourism and I was really curious about it.

A few years later, he suggests I travel to Italy to make photo-shoots at the selected accommodations. I was truly stunned to discover that in today’s world these types of mansions have become such lovely Hotels. And that Italy was so rich in art and history! Looking forward for the next trip to Spain now ?
