Ciao Abruzzo

I have known and worked with Sam and Life In Abruzzo for a decade and when she invited us to sign up for early bird offer for the The Abruzzo Directory we jumped at her idea. Bringing info together, and all of us all working together increases the chances of us all being found and bookings. Abruzzo's information is so scattered, we ourselves find it difficult and we know the region as locals, tour operators and accommodation providers, we can all benefit from it being in one place!

We recouped our investment in the 'Gold Tier' within a week of being live on the site when she promoted our truffle excursion! It's good to be featured across the site and social media, even if people aren't visiting this year they have a handy resource for next year

Dear Sam, We are super happy with the result!

With the Life in Abruzzo marketplace we have virtually opened the doors of our ceramic workshop to the overseas public. It was amazing to make custom creations and send them thousands of miles away even when the world was at a standstill due to the pandemic. We talked about our corner of Abruzzo on the blog and in the group and beautiful encounters and synergies between small businesses were born: a special line of ceramic bowls has already arrived in London. We look forward to preparing new ideas!

LifeinAbruzzo is a gold mine of information, history and curiosities. Although I am from Abruzzo "remade with onion", as they say in my part, this is one of the sites I consult the most - because it continually surprises me with the quality of the articles and photos. By virtue of its diffusion in the British community, I found many entrepreneurs' stores in Abruzzo through the blog for my television program A New Life in the Sun. Thanks LifeinAbruzzo!

I have known Sam since 2017, her knowledge and promotion of the Abruzzo region is unmatched. His site is the most followed in the international community in Abruzzo and every time I contacted Sam to promote an event, the response was remarkable, keep up the great work Sam!
