Two sisters and a lifetime of adventure
Since Monica's first trip to Italy at age 9 months (when she went skinny dipping at the Lido of Venice) and since Maria Elena's debut as an expert "gelato" consultant in Italy on tour, at age 5, we have made Italy a permanent part of our lives.
As a family we traveled to Italy every summer to visit our mother's side of the family. Finally, in 1990 we insisted to our parents, Rick and Paola Malpezzi Price, that we wanted to experience a 4th of July! So we left for Italy that year on July 5 and stayed 15 months!
Decades of Overseas Adventure Tours
Our parents, Rick and Paola Malpezzi Price, led their first bicycle tour from coast to coast across Italy in 1972. Then, they took a break, had a family (us!) - and it wasn't until 1985 that they decided to continue where they left off and make a life of sharing the world by bike.
