Lucianna Coppola – Owner, Programming & Sales Manager
Lucianna has been in the field of tourism for many years and she is the mind of Umbria in Tour. Given her vast experience in Incoming in Italy, she works following this motto ”Quality and Services are our first Priority”. She personally selects the suppliers and supervises every activity, collaborating closely whith each member of her team.
As an experienced Italian tour operator and service provider, Lucianna brings a great knowledge and dedication to the specialist Umbria in Tour programs. After a six year period in public relations for the well-known Italian tour operator - Valtur, Lucianna organised tourist companion services for several Italian travel agencies, such as Account, as part of the tourist operation for the Egyptian Government and for some of the larger societies in Rome and Milan. For four years she was the coordinator of travel/study programmes for a large and prestigious private school of Italian Studies for foreigners as well as being responsible for arranging the full immersion courses in English. Over the last three years, she has collaborated with a tour operator in Umbria organising all of the enogastronomic programmes as well as running, and hosting,  the day to day group programmes across a broad cultural range of activities.
All of this experience, together with her love of languages, travel, people and a real passion for her homeland of Umbria, has now culminated in the creation of "Umbria in Tour" project. From march 2009, Umbria in Tour, with Lucianna as its director and programming, has been able to offer a broad range of activities focussing on the Umbrian culture in all its diversity and colour. She's actually responsible for the promotion, organization, coordination and, for specific programmes, the hosting, of all activities put forward as part of the great range of services provided by  "Umbria in Tour".

Giuseppina Restivo - Coord. Italian courses

While coming from a very well established Umbrian family Giuseppina was born in Melbourne, Australia. Together with her family she moved back to Italy when she was 18. This means that not only does she have perfect English (she is a very highly qualified and respected English language teacher) but also perfect Italian with the great love and passion for Umbrian traditions that all Umbrians inherit down through the generations.

Language classes, she's responsable for, are conducted by qualified language teachers who are experts in teaching Italian/English as a foreign language as part of our study programmes using new and innovative methodologies of teaching.

Adrian Misarti
Adrian Misarti was born, grew up and started his working career in the U.S.A., having graduated from Yale University.
Always having had the bug for European travel (with a British mother and an Italian born father), his first Italian living experience was as a Fulbright Teaching Assistant in Sicily.
He later returned here to work in banking, consulting and finance in Milan and Rome, and has therefore lived in Italy for more than 25 years.
At one point he happened on Orvieto, decided it was the place for him, and has resided here full time since 2005. In 2010, deciding that retirement wasn't yet for him, he founded Red Oaks Partners, a country home property management company, which is a close ally of our group.
We are therefore delighted that Adrian has also agreed to be a point of reference for our clients and friends in arranging and conducting their travel with Umbriaintour.
