About Lidia’s Travels

Lidia and our Tuscan friends

Guide and Travel Matriarch

Lidia Fitzpatrick

I have one goal in mind – to help everyone experience life ``like the locals``. Whether the magnificent island of Sicily, or the breathtaking landscape of Tuscany, you will be immersed in the richness of Italy. To this end, we created an itinerary featuring local food, wine, culture, history and architecture – a unique taste of Italy that can only be found with us.

Living in Guelph, Ontario, Canada, married Irish, but raised Sicilian. Having travelled to Italy since the age of 12, she quickly developed a passion for the culture, food and later wine. Her studies in Food and Beverage led to further in depth continuing education in Oenology.

Lidia holds the WSET 3 certification along with the Italian Wine Specialist and Italian Wine Scholar. Lidia’s many years of experience as a Product Consultant for the LCBO has given her tremendous insight into the world of wine and beverage alcohol.

Lidia first Wine Tour was in the Val d’orcia Tuscany and has travelled to several wine producing area like Loire Valley, Champagne, Chianti, Sicily and of course Niagara.
