An Adventure of the soul
For most people, traveling to Italy is a once in a lifetime experience.
My goal is to make sure that experience is a memory that lasts a lifetime.
Let's plan your custom Italian travel adventure, completely unique to your travel wants and needs.
I have experienced more travel adventures in Italy than most people.
This allows me find the best of Italy for your personal adventure.
I have resided in Italy since January of 2016.
That means I have everyday experiences to help you make your travel go smoothly.
Because I have lived in both the United states and Italy, I know how La Dolce Vita, the sweet life of slow living, in Italy differs from how we Americans typically live.
That will make your transition to Italian time and lifestyle easier.
The experiences I have gathered help you choose the best options for your travel.
Explore Italy beyond typical tourist offerings.
Italy is full of unusual, unique options for you to enjoy.
Because of the friends I have made across Italy, you choose from multiple partners guaranteed to provide the best Italian experience.
I only refer my travelers to hotels and businesses I can be certain will provide you with adventures you will treasure.
There you can discover different, unique experiences, festivals and travel ideas to help you hone in on what you truly want to experience.
Going to Italy but want to do your own thing? Take Me Home Italy will do all the planning so you can stay independent!
Chuck and I would like to thank you for the wonderful trip you provided for us with to Italy last May to meet with our distant cousins from John Ricci’s family.
You did a great job connecting with our relatives via email and Facebook and lining up dates when we could all meet etc. and you kept all in our party informed of what we would be doing, when we would meet the relatives and what tours we could do our own if we wanted to.
The hotels you selected were excellent – priced very well and very comfortable and all had wonderful locations for walking around town, restaurants, sightseeing etc.
It was so fun to meet the Italian relatives – who fed us for two days - they were very enjoyable and it brought tears to my eyes to see where my grandfather lived so many years ago … and that we all walked the same little streets in town – Fragneto Le’ Abate – that he did. It was a most memorable and will never be forgotten!
Thank you again for all your excellent work and organization – we really had a great time!
Marie and Chuck J.
My Minnesota, USA teammates and I had an unforgettable, intimate experience in Italy thanks in large part to Marilyn’s knowledge of the culture and her personal connections to people that live there. We didn’t get lost in the crowds so to speak, amongst the tourists who partook in the 2018 International Dragon Boat Paddling race in Florence. From guidance in setting up train reservations, arranging authentic field trips within the local community and booking our accommodations, Marilyn put together a memorable, heartfelt experience in the land of Amore.
