Ciao, I am Mariët Bloemendal, the creative mastermind and passionate Italy expert of “Volg de Rode Schoentjes”.
On your own on vacation to Italy. Would you rather not be alone during your holiday?
Let’s experience your best holiday ever together!
If it is up to me, I say YES.
I will do everything I can to create a good base, original and attractive and equipped with all comforts, in which you will discover and experience a real Italian holiday together with other people going solo.
In recent years I have gotten to know Bolsena and the surrounding area like no other and I have gained a lot of experience with what my guests want to experience.
Curious about who you are going on holiday with?

Do you recognize this?
I know from experience. It can be quite scary to go on vacation alone.
Especially when it is your very first time.
Perhaps you are unsure whether a solo trip is cut out for you?
Are you afraid that you will not feel comfortable in the group?
Or that you are only going to meet old and unhappy people?
That there is no time for yourself?
The Next Level
Don’t worry, give yourself the best experience holiday in Italy ever and make new friends for life.
Come along and experience it for yourself. Any doubts you may still have will be thrown overboard.
For your unique holiday experience and unforgettable memories
Time for you!
Maximum time for yourself during the trip.
Little or nothing to prepare.
You are going to travel comfortably.
The best experience holidays
“Volg de Rode Schoentjes” takes you to places you may know from brochures. Etruscans, wine, art, hiking.
But it is surprising because it is slightly different from what you expect. Different guide, different wine. Different nature, different meeting than you had expected. Surprisingly fun, cozy! To never forget.
Walked with Mariet for five days through the area of the Etruscans. A long cherished wish. She knows the area like the back of her hand and knows all the special places. Walked through the sunken roads, saw caves with burial chambers still present, fields full of poppies and visited authentic villages. We have enjoyed this week. Exercise and relaxation side by side with our great guide Mariet. Great, thanks Mariet!
