What you'll do

Join this unique tour and lift the lid off the shady, infamous mafia organisation, as a criminology lecturer lays bare the facts and the stories, right on confiscated mafia confiscated assets.

You’ll be picked up from central Naples, and driven through the staggering countryside of Southern Italy to your unique location for your tour: a fully functioning, organic buffalo farm.

Located in the beautiful province of Caserta, you’ll arrive and receive a tour of the farm and factory, where they carefully rear and breed buffalo before producing the famous buffalo mozzarella. We can absolutely guarantee this is where you’ll try the freshest mozzarella you’ve ever tasted.

If you’re wondering why this is relevant, it’s because you’re taking a tour of confiscated mafia assets. The location is steeped in mafia history, and you’ll get to speak to some of the people using legitimate business practices to lead the antimafia fight.

At times uplifting, at others solemn, this wholly fascinating tour gives you a seriously fascinating insight to the history, and continuing influence, of the mafia in Southern Italy.

The tour includes a delicious lunch made with produce straight from the surrounding countryside.
