Why travel with direction
Travel with Direction is a different kind of travel company.
We focus on culture, history, food, drinks, and fun in Le Marche, Italy. We connect you with that “living like a local” feeling because we are offering authentic outings in places and with people we know and trust. We are ambassadors of slow travel, emphasizing the experience of Italy, not a jumble of hastily thrown together snapshots.
Our trips are completely customizable, so they can be tailored to the interests of your group.
We have real relationships with the local people, and you will too.
