Un’avventura dell’anima

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 been traveling to Italy since 1971.

I have experienced more travel adventures in Italy than most people.

This allows me find the best of Italy for your personal adventure.

I am a Dual Citizen of both the USA and Italy.

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.

I personally explore Italy, small towns, festivals, and artisanal experiences across the country.

The experiences I have gathered help you choose the best options for your travel.

Explore Italy beyond typical tourist offerings.

Travel with the best of Italy

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.

I blog for the Take Me Home Italy, Ciao for Now Blog.

There you can discover different, unique experiences, festivals and travel ideas to help you hone in on what you truly want to experience.

I want to thank you so much for arranging our trip to Italy. I will have wonderful memories forever. The hotels that we stayed at in Naples, Benevento, Rome, Florence and Venice were wonderful. They were all so close to everything. We easily walked to most sights.

It was nice to have the freedom to do what we wanted to do, not just a group tour. Your suggestions on what sights we could see were fabulous! Sometimes we wanted to do things as a group and that was great too.

Your suggestion to travel with just one small suitcase and a carry on was liberating.  In the past, I always traveled with too big bags and too many suitcases. One small suitcase is the way I will travel now. It was so easy with my small suitcase to catch the fast trains and to travel on the airplane.

I highly recommend your services as a travel organizer. Thanks again for arranging my fantastic trip to Italy.

Florence has been great! Our tour day was great and we enjoyed having the time in between to get some food around our piazza. We have found the market and did quite a bit of shopping, especially the girls. The wine tour was so nice, beautiful views and the peaceful country side. The picture of Dave and Claudette with some champagne they bought, it was their 26th Anniversary. Only thing that you need to prepare yourself for is the weather here! Super hot and advise sunscreen and water.

Thank you so much for helping my grandma Kathy plan this trip for us, it has been such a great trip and so many memories have been made! We are excited for our last stop in Venice and for the train ride there

I have been remiss in expressing my deep appreciation to you for giving life to my journey, assisting me in finding my ancestors. I wanted to tell you how thrilled I am to have not only the names and specifics on my paternal grandparents, but also my great grandparents...G is continuing to search for records on my paternal side; they may be more difficult.  But  I now have names, some important dates, etc.  Waiting for the actual docs; I cannot wait to see these.  I am blessed to have found you.
