A bit of history

“After working for some years in tourism and climbing the career ladder, I decided to start my own agency in my home town of Malcesine. I passed exams to qualify as a technical director and in 1991 Melsinea Viaggi was born. There were two of us to begin with. Now we are five working in three areas of activity: tour groups, FIT and bespoke proposals/itineraries”
