About Italygate



Italygate is a family-owned travel company offering unique travel experiences in Italy. We are located in Emilia-Romagna, in Northern Italy, today affectionately known as the legendary “bread basket” of Italy!  With its capital of Bologna, this region is considered by many to be the gastronomical and culinary heart of Italy.


I’m Cristina, the technical director and general manager of the company. I was born in San Giovanni in Persiceto in the provinces of Bologna, in a countryside rich in traditions and culture. I grew up with Parmigiano Reggiano and Balsamic Vinegar in my bood as my uncle is a Cheese Master in its own dairy and my father is a Balsamic Vinegar certified “Maestro Assaggiatore” (Taste Master).
I started working in turism when I was 22 years old and I always loved travelling and get in touch with other people and culture. In 2010 I decided to start my own business that perfectly combines my history and my passions.


We offer first class travel experiences and custom tours based on your needs. Our excursions are made by us and guided by our trusted guides and tour leaders all over Italy, enthusiastic local people, who’d like to share their passion for their land, traditions and food!
