Visit Italy with Chuck - chuckFAZIOphotography

Join Chuck for 7-14 fabulous days in 


Photographing it and eating your way through it!

Late October into November 

$2,100- $3,500

Mid-fall is the perfect time to see and photograph Italy. Crowds are gone, temps are low and things are way more relaxed.

We'll stay in amazing houses/apartments with incredible views.  There will be more food than you can eat and as much photo instruction as you want. 


Every day starts with a wonderful Italian breakfast in our casa. Then, as we drive around, the cars will be filled with Italian delicacies like prosciutto, provolone, crunchy Italian bread and biscotti! You will NEVER go hungry.  Lunch is on you as we explore a new town or stop at an AutoGrill, which you will LOVE!

 Every other night, we will prepare and cook a scrumptious Italian dish created by acclaimed Italian Chef Troy Clayton!  A trip to the market is part of our adventure to source wholesome local and really fresh ingredients! You are welcome to help prepare or simply watch with a glass of wine!  

We'll dine al fresco


Of course there is because you're going with Chuck! how much you get is up to you! We'll shoot during the day, and go over your pix at night and it doesn't matter if you use the latest DSLR or your smart phone!

"Our trip to Italy with Chuck in November 2017 was absolutely fantastic! Chuck is a great cook and always made sure we had plenty of bread, cheese, prosciutto and wine to keep us happy! Especially loved the Umbria portion of our trip. If only we could justify going again!  Naomi Mundy

Day 1 -3   Venice/Murano

Venica is a GREAT place to visit but the better place to stay is a vaporetto ride away on the small island of Murano, famed for its glass factories.  

We'll walk the cobblestone streets as we explore the joy of Venice. We'll visit the island cemetery  and we'll start to EAT ITALIAN.

Days 3-4-5   Lake Como

There's a reason George Clooney lives here and you'll find out for yourself as we travel the lake region of northern Italy!

We'll stay in the small town of Brienno. We'll travel by ferry to Bellagio and to other great towns on the lake. And we'll be welcomed as family at our friend's cafe in Brienno!

"If you're considering going on this trip with Chuck, by all means, GO!!! I took this trip with him last year, and it was amazing!! I highly recommend this itinerary and Chuck's fantastic, fun tour leadership. What a great time we all had!"     Michelle Taunton  

Day 6-7-8  Firenze!

Explore the Renaissance for the town famed for its origin! We generally stay at an apartment with a rooftop terrace overlooking the city. It's 80 steps up BUT worth every one of them!  We'll have a private tour of Florence in the morning and then you'll be left alone to explore the very walkable city on your own!

Day 8-9-10  Umbria

Like Tuscany, Umbria is home to rolling hills of olive and wine orchards!

We'll explore Lago do Trasimeno while we have private wine tasting experiences and we'll even learn how to cook Italian!  We'll visit Assisi, Perugia and Orvieto!  Umbria is just like Tuscany, only better.

Day 10-11-12  Roma!

We'll arrive in Roma and spend the day exploring its wonder.

 We'll walk the Forum and tour the Coliseum. We'll touch stone carved by slaves over 2,000 years ago. We'll walk the famed Spanish Steps and have lunch in the Piazza Navona!  We'll tour the catacombs and then have dinner in the Trastervere section
