New York, New York Travel Agent

Italy & France Vacation Specialist

Best view of Positano!
Best view of Positano!

I have been involved in the travel industry for several years in Italy and France

Having lived, studied & worked in Italy and France I’ve been able to build a very extensive knowledge of the culture, people, gastronomy & regions in both countries. And more importantly, how to show them to others!

Travel is one of greatest means by which to educate oneself. And in meeting new cultures and people, I guarantee you’ll walk away richer. So, for me to help facilitate this education is an absolute pleasure.

Let me share with you my passion and expert knowledge of these two countries to make your next vacation more customized, fulfilling, and authentic! 

 

 

My Travel Experiences

Discovering Pompeii

During my time spent living in the south of Italy I was able to explore Naples and more importantly, Pompeii. 

Pompeii is an impressive place to visit for anyone. The ability to walk through this ancient city and see time paused in front of you, is something you will never forget!

Venice is always a good idea!

When visiting Italy with a special someone I always advise others to look at Venice.
It's a magical city with a deep history all of its own it will take you on a ride! 
 
I think it's a romantic place that was built to seduce. With it winding and almost maze like streets ... Read more from my Venice is always a good idea! story.

Wine tasting in Paris

While living in Paris I conducted many wine tasting and food pairing tours. The best way to discover Paris today is through activities like this. I say this because many restaurants and wine bars are being run and operated by the new generation.

This group of people are really dedicating their lives ... Read more from my Wine tasting in Paris story.

Amazing time in Piedmont

"Perfect for people interested in learning about a culture through its food production. The personal approach to our experience was fabulous--we had a great balance of activities and free time.

My Reviews

Matt made it POP!

Reviewed By Samuel - Philadelphia, PA | Traveled to Positano ~ Italy ~ Europe
The Amalfi Coast is amazing destination, but Matthew made it 10 times more enjoyable. Matthew knew all of the secret spots that locals frequent and we had an amazing time. Drinking fresh natural wine in Positano is one of my top ten experiences abroad! Matt truly made it POP on all levels! Would go every summer!

Vacation of our dreams!

Reviewed By Vincenzo - New York, New York | Traveled to Rome ~ Italy ~ Europe
We had the pleasure to have Matthew as our tour guide in Rome. The trip itself was outstanding. We were guided to small restaurants and trattorie that we would have never been able to find on our own. Matthew was the perfect guide. He was always there to answer questions and he provided expert knowledge on all aspects of Roman life. It helps to have a native English speaker that can explain things with ease. We highly recommend Mr. Altieri as a guide.

Exceptional Trip

Reviewed By ED - Fort Myers, FL. 33913 | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
We worked with Matthew last year for our family trip to Italy. He went above and beyond to meet all our needs. We visited the region of Piedmont because we are wine lovers. What a magical experience and breathtaking scenery. The trip was a well-balanced mix of country life and city life. So happy Matthew exposed us to this region that we didn't know existed. He was patient with the many questions we had and truly listened to what we wanted to experience on our trip. Our hotels, guides, wine tastings and restaurant choices couldn't have been better and every excursion was just what we asked for! It was nice to know that someone was available if there was a problem, but we didn't have any. We could not be more pleased with our vacation and give Matthew all the credit for helping us.

The Best Food and Wine Tour Ever

Reviewed By Michele - New York | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
Working with Matt was a pleasure. His passion translated into each venue he shared with us. In the time we were in Italy we got to experience the best food, wine, and farms with little effort due to his pre-planning. We would never have gotten to all the areas and special little spots if it wasn't for Matts knowledge of the area and the relationships he had with each store and shop owner. I recommend anything Matt is involved in and would 100% use him again.

Best Family Vacation Ever!

Reviewed By WM - Grand Rapids, Michigan | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
I traveled to Italy last year with my family. It was a trip of a lifetime! We were lost when it came to planning and fitting everything in that we wanted to see. We contacted a few places and ended up working with Matthew. He more than exceeded our expectations! He really listened to the things we were interested in seeing and planned the best possible family vacation for us! Our trip was unforgettable from the amazing hotels he arranged for us, down to the tours, cooking classes and amazing private transfers. We will definitely be reaching out to Matthew again to help plan our next adventure!!
