Globalization and technology have led to the homogenization of your life, and now you crave locally made and authentic experiences. Contrived, packaged tourism is not for you.

WHO’S TO SAY WHAT IS TRULY AUTHENTIC TRAVEL?

Locals are! Locals are the ultimate shopping deal hunters, they know the best local winemakers, can organise gondola lessons in Venice and pastry-making in France. They have those connections. Travel is not just about seeing the Eiffel Tower or the Colosseum. It’s about learning how to make homemade Tuscan cuisine, tiramisu or balsamic vinegar, meeting the winemakers and chefs, or biking secret local's trails.

Siamo creates and links extra-ordinary experiences, with ‘approved’ local guides, for independent people. We take all the headaches out of independent experiential travel, provide guidance when needed, but stay at arms length to give you independence. We give you flexibility to do your own thing, and not to be with people you don't know, or connect you with real locals (with like-minded values to you) when needed for authentic, off the beaten track, journeys and adventures that can’t be found in Guide Books or on Trip Advisor.

Ski Italy - Cortina

Spread along the northern Italian border, the UNESCO World Heritage Dolomites are an epic mountain range comprised of the most beautiful set of landscapes in the world - towering vertical walls of rock, sheer cliffs and ancient villages nestled amongst narrow, deep and long valleys. Add blankets of white winter snow and this uniquely special terrain becomes one of the most diverse winter playgrounds in the world!  A holiday here with Siamo Travel will leave you with memories to share for years to come.

Cortina d'Ampezzo is one of those rare places where 'leaving' is difficult!. It is such a hard place to explain to those who have never visited.  Massive breathtaking landscapes surround the picturesque town which simultaneously exudes luxury and expensiveness while at the same time lends the impression of being 'untouched' - like time has stood still. It is actually impossible to write about Cortina without overdoing the superlatives!

Cortina, our Northern Hemisphere Base, was the home to the 1956 Winter Olympics and also the stage for the James Bond movie For Your Eyes Only. It is part of the largest ski resort network in the world; with 12 ski regions, over 1200 km’s of piste and an incredible 450 new or modernised lifts, the skiing combinations are limitless - and all within an hours transfer of your hotel or apartment. Besides being an annual feature stop on the Women's World Cup Speed Circuit, Cortina will also host the World Ski Champs in 2021.  The skiing has everything from wide, open, perfectly groomed trails for fun sweeping turns ideal for everyone in the family, tree runs for the adventurous, and some super steep challenges for even the most advanced skier.  On most people's itinerary should be the world-renowned ski tour 'Sellaronda' - a 40 kilometer ski tour, circumnavigating Mount Sella by a series of interconnected lifts and ski resorts, completed in one day with the help of our local hosts. 

Cortina it also considered the centre for regional alpine cuisine & wine, of which you will experience many local delicacies and fare at refugios (mountain huts) scattered around the pistes. Evening entertainment ranges from fantastic family pizzas to exquisite fine dining and late night bars. Cortina has it all!

We mix it up by using local transport to better interact at a local level,  or we partner with local operators for the ultimate in experiences.  Our Journeys, Adventures and Tours are based on years of independent travelling by ourselves and have coupled the concept of ‘freedom travelling’ with 'Itinerary based tours’.  This means your travels are about you and the experiences you want to remember!
