Southern Visions Travel
is the collaboration of Antonello Losito, a native of Puglia and former professional cyclist and Michael Housewright, a 14 year wine, food, and travel professional. We offer well researched and implemented immersive journeys into the cultures of Southern Italy and beyond. We offer a range of cycling journeys from casual self guided to the pillar of guided luxury. Our walking trips are led by Puglia’s most talented and informative guide in natural, art, and cultural history. Our food and wine programs take you to wineries and introduce you to foods and food preparation no other company can offer. We live, work, and play in the places we take our guests.
Southern Visions works together in partnership with its clients to create exceptional vacation experiences. We take the time to understand our clients’ objectives so we can design trips that meet each client’s unique travel needs. Southern Visions saves you time and money by allowing you to make all your land based travel arrangements in one place.
Whether you are an independent traveler or a tour operator running itineraries in Southern Italy, our extensive network of contacts allows us to connect you to the region’s best tourism suppliers and our logistical expertise ensures that your itinerary runs smoothly. Southern Visions’ operational know-how, logistical expertise and on-site presence in the region means you can leave the planning and implementation to us and leave your worries behind.

My name is Antonello Losito and I have lived in Puglia my entire life and recently have watched tourism take off in Southern Italy, particularly in Puglia. It wasn’t until I went overseas to spend some time traveling and learning about other cultures that I truly learned to treasure the region in which I live, the historical treasures that surround me and the Italian culture. My desire to share my culture with other travelers and show them around the region that I call home is the foundation for Southern Visions.
Southern Italy, while a wonderful region, is not an easy one for foreigners to connect to independently. Many of the best tourism suppliers are small, unknown and lack the infrastructure to promote their businesses to the wider international tourism market. And many suppliers do not speak any English. At Southern Visions we seek out the best suppliers and have created a large network of contacts that allows us to tap into the region’s potential through collaboration and partnerships. At Southern Visions we aim to connect our clients to the historical, cultural and culinary gems that are available within the region through the design and implementation of exceptional travel experiences. And, by overseeing all of the necessary services to deliver smooth trips in-house (transportation, bikes, accommodation, guides, etc.) we know we can save our clients time and money by providing an expert “one-stop-shop” location for every travel need.
I started Southern Visions to make it easier for tourists and tour operators to see what this region has to offer. So come join us – together let’s make travel memories that will last a lifetime!
