Travel expertise in Greece, Italy, Bali and more!

I am a passionate traveler. I've been around the world. I lived in France and explored Europe extensively, especially Italy and Greece. I've also used my experience to book many custom-crafted itineraries for clients. I have my favorite places to stay, locations to visit, activities, and of course incredible food and wine to enjoy. And, every time I travel, I explore new areas, new restaurants and more art and culture. When I lived in France, I traveled nearly every weekend. In addition to Greece and Italy, I've been throughout Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Czech Republic, Croatia, Serbia, Hungary, Slovenia, Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark, and of course England, Scotland and Ireland. I also love Southeast Asia! Bali, Thailand, Vietnam, Japan...stunning places to explore. And recently I've added Africa and South America to places that I've traveled. OK, you get it. I love traveling. I find something new every time and love to bring my love of these destinations to my clients!

Italy, my Italy! Oh how I love thee!

Through those journeys i was able to reach Milan, Venice, Verona, Bologna, Florence, Rome, Naples, Amalfi Coast, Bari, B...

Springtime in France and Spain!
I've been to France many times, and actually lived there for nearly a year. I've explored the countryside from the north to the south and have come to love every nook and cranny of it. But, with all of my travels to France, I had only been to Spain once, for a very short time. So, this trip was focused on exploration of Spain. While we couldn't ...

    Total confidence in Mike and 58 Stars Travel
    Reviewed By The returning travelers - Edmonds, WA | Traveled to New Zealand ~ Australia & New Zealand
    Mike was fantastic. He was knowledgeable of the many travel options and helped us select the perfect trip. After that he responded to our concerns, immediately returning our calls or emails, contacting the tour operator immediately, resolving any of our questions. We have used Mike and the agency at least twice before with the same exceptional experiences
    I would recommend this agent to my family and friends.

    HIRE AN EXPERT!
    Reviewed By Kimberly L - SEATTLE | Traveled to Greece ~ Europe
    This summer, I hired a travel agent for the first time in my life, and learned one thing: I will NEVER book another trip by myself. Working with Mike Salvadore was quick, easy, completely painless, and absolutely fabulous! When I called Mike, I was extremely far behind on my travel plans-I was simply stuck. I was traveling to a country that I'd never visited, and I didn't know where to begin.

    Mike met with me for a short period of time, and asked me questions about the types of things that my family likes to do on vacation, as well as budget and timing. The next thing I knew, Mike & his team presented a detailed presentation of our trip. This was not an easy trip to book. The trip included flights to several island locations, cars to inland destinations, and local-flavor excursions. One great surprise was the wondrful private tour guide that took us to see the ruins in Delphi and Olympia. Mike also found the MOST fabulous hotels, And most importantly, it was all EASY !
    I would recommend this agent to my family and friends.
