Sono Italiana (I am Italian.) I grew up and was reared in a town north of Venice. Italian is my first language. My motivation - almost 30 years ago - for choosing a career in the travel industry was because of my passion to share this wonderful destination with others! Now, as a professional destination expert for Italy, I travel to my native country at least once a year - eager to search for and experience unique, off-the-beaten-path locations, excursions and activities that you would like. I visit hotels and resorts seeking the finest accommodations. I stop at popular local restaurants to sample the cuisine. I meet with highly-trained, specialized guides to assure that they would be the perfect match to assist you on your upcoming tour/excursion.

Have you ever been to a destination that truly becomes part of your soul? That is what happened to me many, many years ago when I visited Italy for the first time. And, to this day, no other destination in this world has created in me such passion, interest, and enthusiasm as I continue to be immersed in its culture, history, people, towns and villages that make this country shine. Whether I'm viewing world-class art or taking a cooking class, I always come away with a renewed appreciation for this diverse and exciting destination.

My mother is 100% Italian born and reared, and Italy was my playground growing up, having spent much time on Italian soil until I was 18. Now, I return for at least three weeks every year making site tours, meeting with hoteliers, maintaining my valuable local contacts, and learning what's new and exciting to recommend to you - my valued client.

I recently led a customized group to Italy. We started in Sorrento, stopped in Pompeii for a guided tour; dined at a Michelin Star restaurant, experienced Capri and Ana Capri, rode to the top of a mountain on a "Secret Chair Lift", had sandals custom-fit for each of us, before continuing on to the Blue Grotto, plus a full day of touring Amalfi, before going on to Rome to see the Vatican, Trevi Fountain, and the Sistine Chapel.

I love Italy and all things Italian! I have traveled throughout the country many times, most recently spending a month in Lucca (northern Tuscany) "living like a local."

As a long-time travel advisor and Destination Specialist for Italy and Turkey, I look forward to sharing with you the best of each destination. We'll start with Italy. Forever in my soul, and like my second home, Italy was my home for several years. I've toured and experienced - not only all the popular sights and sites - but as well unique, off-the-beaten-path experiences and sites that are lesser known, but just as beautiful and memorable.

My passion for this compelling and beautiful country began right out of college as I was employed with the San Francisco branch of the Italian Government Travel Office (ENIT.) My job description was to promote tourism to Italy and over half of my work was devoted to arranging and booking personalized travel to Italy and other parts of Europe. Of course, the fact that I'm an Italian American (half Lucchese and half Sicilian) and that I minored in Italian language and culture in college has only piqued my interest in learning as much as possible about this destination! Over the years I've lost track of how many visits to Italy I've made. I have gained so much knowledge and experience and want to share it all with you.

With almost 20 years experience working as a professional travel advisor and in addition to experiencing and exploring my favorite destination both as a leisure and a business traveler, I can honestly say that I know Italy!. I have also worked for several years in the wine industry and have established many local contacts who can arrange exceptional food and wine experiences for my clients. As a musician, I keep up on what is currently happening on the entertainment scene including jazz, opera, regional festivals and classical music. I can arrange unusual experiences such as driving a Ferrari through the hills of Tuscany or having a private art historian to guide you through the Uffizi Gallery in Florence. My knowledge of wine, food, music and extensive knowledge of Italy, allows me to plan an itinerary that is certain to surprise and delight you. And even more important, there is no doubt that your first trip will lead to many more Italian adventures!

Morris Columbus Travel

As an experienced and knowledgeable travel advisor who has been fortunate to experience and explore much of our world, there are two destinations that are my very favorites: Italy and my home state of Utah. I look forward to sharing both with you.

To say that I'm passionate about Italy and all things Italian is truly an understatement! I've lived here and am fluent in Italian. I cook Italian, and I certainly eat Italian. I've studied all aspects of their enviable lifestyle, culture, cuisine, and accommodations, as well as experienced exciting and unique things to see and do. Whether this will be your first - or 21st - visit to Italy; whether you're traveling solo, as a couple, or part of multi-generational family group, I have the expertise to craft your itinerary to ensure that I not only meet -but exceed - your every expectation.

Next, we'll come back across the Atlantic and head to the beautiful western state of Utah. Adventures await!

Someone said Italy was a passion, I call it an obsession. Traveling to Italy at least twice a year for the last 12 years has truly made me an addict. In addition to trying to explore every corner of Italy, I am an Israel specialist as well. Born in Israel but with an Italian heart, I love to share my insights, knowledge, and experiences in these two countries. From enjoying the "hip and trendy" Tel Aviv to experiencing the North region where you'll drive through Arab villages and see - first-hand - how the Jews and the Arabs live together. Take a jeep excursion with the head of security at a Kibbutz who will take you on a journey where you will meet with Israeli soldiers on active duty. From skiing in the Dolomites to sunbathing in Puglia, the passion I feel for Italy comes out with each conversation.

My passion began when I had the good fortune to work here, as I was based in a small town outside Rome. Needless to say, I traveled extensively every weekend and on vacations to learn and experience as much as possible. Since returning home to the U.S., my passion and enthusiasm only continues to grow. I can't wait to get back every year and get updated on all that's new and exciting since my last visit. In addition to my expertise in planning individual custom itineraries, I have extensive experience in leading groups to Italy and have planned and implemented itineraries for faith-based, multi-generational, wine and general art/cultural-focused groups. I can recommend such enticing experiences as adding a concert to your itinerary, a chance to drive Ferraris in the hills around Florence, arranging an after-hours tour of a famous attraction, or a personal shopping experience. In fact my native Italian friends tell me "I've seen more of Italy than they have!"

Italy is one of the world's most intriguing and compelling destinations. Yet many visitors only see the must-see cities, attractions and popular sites - and don't get to experience the authentic local Italian lifestyle and culture because they didn't have an expert to help them plan their journey. That's where I come in. What sets me apart is not only my extensive and thorough knowledge of the destination itself, but my long-standing relationships with local Italian travel industry experts who constantly share with me information about new hotels, special sites, restaurants, events, festivals and activities that will ensure that not only will this be your best trip ever - it will be the start of many, many return visits.
