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.

The memories of Italy I share with my children are priceless. Thank you Marilyn for helping us make it happen.

As my three children and I planned for a two week adventure in Italy, Marilyn met with us, giving us the inside track on best locations to stay in Rome as well as “must do” activities to include. She helped me get tickets in advance for tours that often sell out, arrange train tickets, find apartments and plan for the hot summer weather. Our unanimous choice for “Best Day in Italy” came from Mars suggestion - tour of the beautiful Chianti region with Arianna and Alessio. The day culminated with a guided tour of a family owned organic winery where we were treated to a homemade meal that no restaurant could ever touch! It reminded me of my grandmother’s and mother’s cooking. Unbelievable!

Thank you so much Marilyn for helping us make our trip one filled with wonderful experiences and memories.

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!
