Italy Specialist

Italy your way! Imagine you and your personal driver/guide on a full day Italian adventure along the Amalfi Coast. You stop in Positano for lunch, continue onward to beautiful Amalfi and stop in Ravello for an authentic taste of la dolce vita. Italy is all about the experience- the history, the culture, the scenic beauty, the food, and of course the people! There isn't a neighborhood Italian feast that can compare to what you experience firsthand in Italy. Let me take you there. My many years of specializing in travel to Italy includes designing private guided holidays and escorting group tours, educational tours, and group ski holidays to Cortina, Bormio, Val Gardena and more. I recently returned from one of my small group tours of Venice, Lake Garda (the largest of the Italian lakes), Florence and the Tuscan countryside. Incredible! From the Dolomites to Rome and from Portovenere to Puglia, I've got it covered. Some of the tours I feature through my special contacts in Rome include a "Golf Cart tour of Rome" with access to restricted areas; special tours designed for kids and family; the Tuscan countryside and medieval cities of Siena and San Gimignano; a Vespa tour in the Chianti hills; Chianti wine tasting and lunch; a Ferrari test drive in Maranello; a coast line tour (by boat) of Cinque Terre and Portovenere and walk along the Path of Lovers. Don't forget Sicily with some of the best seafood, a wealth of Greek ruins and the largest active volcano in Europe (lying between the African and Eurasian plates). I could go on and on, but you get the picture. There's so much adventure and excitement in your specially-customized holiday in Italy that you'll be talking about it for many years to come. So what are you waiting for? Call ME!
