I love the Amalfi Coast!

Stunning Italy
Stunning Italy

Italy! What can i say. I'm not sure that there's any other country in the world, other than Greece and France, that fills me with such excitement. You can go to Italy 100 times and experience it differently each time. It's one of my favorite places to go, but also one of my favorite places to create custom-crafted vacations for clients. Each area presents something unique...

Liguria. Located in Northwest Italy, bordering Piedmont, Emilia Romagna, Tuscany, and the Ligurian Sea is Liguria, a region celebrated for its gorgeous coastline, delectable cuisine, and endless outdoor activities. It's home to the Italian Riviera, a historic vacation destination for everyone from locals to celebrities. Liguria boasts amazing coastal areas, including:Cinque Terre, Riviera dei Fiori, Santa Margherita, Ligure, Portofino. In addition, Sanremo is renowned for its cuisine, including some of the world’s best pesto sauce.

Tuscany. Of course, most people know of Tuscany, but have you really explored it. Florence is the centerpiece of Tuscany, featuring Renaissance art and architecture the is world renowned. Tuscany offers a little bit of everything – from small farm towns to big cities, from seaside coasts to rolling hills. Tuscany’s legacy is rooted in its scenic countryside, rich wine culture, artistic cities, and rustic cuisine. Country areas such as Chianti and Val D’Orcia boast gorgeous scenery filled with cypress trees and endless vineyards. Tuscany, one of the world's most renowned wine producing areas, offers bold and legendary red wines like Chianti, Brunello, and Morellino. It's literally, a wine connoisseur’s paradise. And, Tuscany’s coastal area of Maremma offer stunning seaside views and incredible beaches, while places like Siena, Pisa, Lucca, and San Gimignano have rich, artistic and historic cultures. 

Campania. In South Italy, Campania has become one of Italy’s most famous and highly-traveled coastal destinations. Being home to Naples, the islands of Capri, the ruins of Pompeii, and the stunning Amalfi Coast, the region offers delicious cuisine – Naples is the birthplace of pizza – as well as incredible sightseeing, hiking on Mt. Vesuvius, and hidden gem locales away from the touristy mainland.

Venice. The “floating city” is known for its canals, carnival masks, romance and quite the crowd. It's busy, but if you can get past that, then it really is a charming place to explore. Just outside of the city is one of my favorite spots in the area, the city of Verona – made famous by Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet.

Rome. It's a historical treasure trove. So much to explore and so many luxurious and wonderful places to stay. I can't do it justice by listing them all out, so i'll leave it by just saying that Rome is really a treasure!

Puglia. It's the heel of Italy’s boot-shaped border that is known for being a less extravagant, but no less beautiful version of the country’s most famed coastal destinations. It features stunning architecture and natural views that feature scenic coastline and vast countryside as well as fantastic towns like Ostuni, Lecce, and Polignano a Mare.

I'm running out of words available in this bio, but i can't forget Sicily, Umbria, Calbria, Abruzzo and another favorite city of mine, Bologna. 

You can explore Italy forever and every time it feels like you've walked out of a dream.

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 !

Mike is a phenomenal travel agent. This was the second European trip he planned for us and we cannot rave enough about the service he provided. My family has always had Greece on our bucket list and Mike helped us to fine tune this trip so that it was perfectly suited to us. We gave him a budget and asked him to give us choices within that budget. Planning could not have been easier. Mike connected us with unbelievable personalized tours, easy connections and transfers, and accommodations that were perfect for our family. Our trip to Greece took us to Athens, Mykonos, Paros, Antiparos, and Santorini. We will remember this experience forever. Mike is my go-to agent because he is knowledgeable, accessible, and trustworthy.

Mike was excellent! He asked all the right questions up front to help discern what kind of experience we wanted to have, and what type of travelers we were. We'd never used an agent before and we not sure what to expect as we're incredibly picky and like to be in control. He was great at incorporating our wishes and requests into the trip, suggesting things we hadn't thought about, and really taking care of all the logistical elements for us as that's the part we dread. He was responsive and available when we ran into an issue while on the trip, and immediately worked to fix it for us and it ended up being one of the best days of an already amazing trip. We're already talking with him about our next adventure.

50th Bday Stanley Tucci-Inspired Trip ofa lifetime

Reviewed By 50 and Fabulous - Seattle, WA | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
I chose to work with 58 Stars and Mike Salvadore for two reasons: Rave reviews from friends who have worked with Mike; and knowing that 58 Stars sponsors a few charities I support (Fred Hutch and Make a Wish).
I could not be more blown away and thrilled with the two-week trip to Italy that Mike put together for me and 10 of my friends to celebrate my 50th Birthday.
The planning of the trip was so much fun - There are so many options with Italy, and Mike guided me through choosing an itinerary which focused on Italian food and culture, unique experiences mixed with luxurious down time.
Some highlights: Our group were the only patrons at a Michelin Star restaurant on a Monday night - turns out the restaurant opened that night just for us! The food & service were incredible!
Bocce on a beach with locals followed by rooftop dinner on the beach. Unreal! Everything Mike put together was beyond my high expectations. He delivered a trip of a lifetime for me and my 10 dearest friend

Trip of a lifetime

Reviewed By Evelyn - Seattle, WA | Traveled to South Africa ~ Africa
I booked a trip with Mike to safari in South Africa that was scheduled for Summer of 2020 and I have no idea what we would have done without him. Mike was proactive and helpful as we went through the complex process of moving the trip out to this year and making changes to the schedule. We never could have done it on our own. On top of that Mike planned us a vacation that exceeded our expectations in every respect. We were not sure what we wanted the trip to be and he was detailed in his suggestions and patient with our indecision. When we decided to add another leg to our delayed trip he came up with an amazing visit to Jordan based on our vague requests that we never would have imagined. It was absolutely the trip of a lifetime. Thank you Mike!!

Great Source of Information

Reviewed By Zack - Paris | Traveled to Europe
Mike has been truly professional. I started working with him in 2020 when I was trying to figure out how to get to Europe with all of the various travel restrictions. He took a small deposit and then worked with me continuously until we made it happen. My flight had delays and false information but Mike and his team worked very hard to help calm my nerves and find out what was actually going on (even on a Saturday). Moving onto 2021, Mike set up a fantastic trip to Greece for me and my partner. He helped with Safari suggestions for Africa and a flight back to the US over Christmas. In 2022 he has provided suggestions for trips to Italy, France, and even Morocco. I was always skeptical about working with travel agents because I felt like I was capable of doing the work on my own. I was wrong. Working with Mike has elevated my traveling experiences time and time again.

From the moment we met Mike we knew we had met an incredibly kind and thoughtful person. Mike was unlike other travel agents we had met, as he took the time to ask my fiancé and I questions about ourselves, our relationship and what we enjoy doing in our free time. From that information he created an absolutely perfect travel itinerary for our honeymoon. Mike's attention to detail is something to admire. He truly thinks of everything, which has been such a relief while planning a wedding during a pandemic. No matter the many questions we asked, the changes we needed to make due to COVID regulations, Mike has always greeted us with warmth and kindness. If you are looking for peace of mind and heart in your next travel plans, I highly recommend Mike!

Favorite Vacation

Reviewed By Pav - Portland, OR | Traveled to Greece ~ Europe
We decided to celebrate our 30th anniversary we would go to Greece. We have always made travel arrangements ourselves accepting that there may be some “hiccups” along the way. We wanted this trip to be special. Mike arranged a trip that well exceeded our expectations. Traveling this summer has not been easy, particularly with flights. We did not have any issues and were grateful for only one stop each to and from Athens. Each hotel was a perfect choice for us. Our hotel in Naxos was amazing.. We were very happy to be staying in Imerovigli in Santorini. I do not think we could have experienced this trip without Mike’s expertise. Due to wind, on the morning that we were scheduled to take the ferry from Naxos to Santorini, all ferries were canceled. Their partner in Greece, AFEA particularly Afroditi was in touch with me all day. She booked us on a later ferry and communicated with transfer and hotel. I highly recommend 58 Stars and will be working with them on our next adventure.

Amazing Italian Adventure!

Reviewed By Melperin - Issaquah, WA | Traveled to Rome ~ Italy ~ Europe
Mike is the best travel agent around! He partnered with us to create the most amazing Italian itinerary for our family. We went to Rome, the Amalfi Coast and Venice. Mike collaborated with us to plan out every detail of our trip. Every single hotel reservation, tour guide, excursion, train ticket, and private bus or boat transfer happened exactly as planned. We found him to be very easy to communicate with and was always quick to respond to our emails and calls. His expertise in Italy also meant that he has access to the most incredible tour guides and activities, things I couldn't plan myself. We are beyond thrilled with how our vacation turned out. I would absolutely recommend working with Mike to friends and family.

Most incredible honeymoon!

Reviewed By Brendan - New York | Traveled to St. Lucia ~ Caribbean
From the moment I reached out to Mike, he was extremely helpful, patient, and resourceful. He set up a call with me early in my trip planning to discuss exactly what my wife and I were looking for in our honeymoon. He was able to book us 2 perfect resorts along with excursions that we absolutely loved. Mike was also extremely patient as we had to move our trip through COVID and he was able to rebook everything for us with no hassle or additional fee. It was a pleasure working with Mike and I look forward to booking more trips with him in the future.

Dream Honeymoon!

Reviewed By Adam & Chantal - Wethersfield, CT | Traveled to Santorini ~ Greece ~ Europe
Mike helped us plan our dream honeymoon. He was very knowledgeable about the Greek Islands and was helpful addressing any questions we had about each of the locations. Seamless booking process with hotels and excursions. We originally booked for June 2020, had to cancel twice and finally went this past September. Mike stayed in touch with us through the whole process (over 18 months from our original booking) and kept us updated on openings, travel restrictions, etc. We would highly recommend Mike for anyone looking to book a vacation in the Greek islands! Very informative and helpful!

58 Stars and Mike are the best!

Reviewed By C&DPurcell - Seattle, Wa | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
Mike was fantastic to work with. We had a geographic challenge for the places we wanted to see and Mike was able to put together an itinerary that made the most of our time. All of the hotels he suggested were fabulous, and we were delighted throughout the trip. His coordination was invaluable. It was a trip of a lifetime.
