Take a Different Look at Travel




the experience, the lifestyle, the company , the memories

It has been said that Lance Green has travel in his blood. His earliest memories are of Nana & Pop coming home from exciting travel abroad and being transfixed by the slide shows of far away places and the stories associated with them. The founder and creator of viaggio, Lance has been in the travel industry for over 37 years, visited over 60 countries and applies his knowledge and passion to every vacation he creates. “We are in the business of creating memories, ones which last a lifetime and are special for our guests. We believe it’s time to take a different look at travel – treat yourself to a viaggio lifestyle vacation.



Lance & Lisa are fabulous vacation hosts… Lance with his gift for weaving a story from a tiny strand into a veritable novel and Lisa with her eye for the detail necessary to ensure that each guest is made to feel well cared for. – Jayne C. AUCKLAND NZ.

A journey with Lance & Lisa is not just a holiday, it’s an experience. We have stayed in quaint historic hotels, visited off the beaten track sights, and sometimes been taken out of our comfort zone for an added dimension. There is always an unexpected “Ahhhh!” moment thrown in some time before we return home. Brian & Anne , Whangarei, NZ


In July 2016 we spent two glorious weeks at Villa Controni in Lucca.   It is a fabulous property in the countryside.   Lance and Lisa were greats hosts taking us to some amazing places and cooking us wonderful meals.The concerts in Lucca were fantastic and well worth a few late nights.   We were sad to leave after the two weeks but Lance and Lisa planned our next two weeks in Italy for us which were also amazing.   They made everything so easy for us. Overall this trip would have been in the top three of our many overseas holidays.Looking forward to seeing next year’s itinerary. Kindest regards, Rosemary and David : Auckland, NZ


“It’s always more fun to travel with friends and even though I didn’t know anyone aside from the organizers, the tour was set up in such a way that everyone got to know each other pretty quickly and we became firm friends. Travelling by myself has never been so much fun. We also had a local who drove us around and he would point out all the best places to eat… including the BEST GELATO IN THE WORLD! Gelateria Dondoli in San Gimignano, definitely something that will make everyone back home jealous of you. The villa we stayed in was beautiful, elegant and felt like we were stepping into a show-house, except instead of leaving after admiring it, you get to stay in it! The only downside to this tour is the sadness you feel when everyone goes their own separate way, and when you have to leave the beautiful, majestic villa you called home during your stay. ”  Gwenth, Auckland. NZ


Our 2 week Italian vacation experience with Lance and Lisa will be a ‘forever’ memory. The “Viaggio” tour package provided opportunities to choose a well balanced mix of planned and spontaneous sightseeing, with or without a personal guide to share the heritage and culture, concerts, cooking classes and time to simply chill out by the pool at Villa Controni. Lance and Lisa’s generous hospitality in this superb manor, along with the exquisite cuisine, predominantly provided by Lance, the master ‘chef’ of the kitchen, was exemplary. Furthermore, Lisa’s gregarious nature and natural ability to be an outstanding hostess made for a winning vacation.  10/10
