S. James Torcivia

Lebanon, Tennessee Travel Agent

An independent agent with Nexion, LLC in Irving, TX, a Travel Leaders Network affiliate agency

Italy, Ireland, & European River Cruise Advisor

I enjoy assisting people with their travel arrangements, especially to Italy and Ireland, since my wife and I have roots there. Helping clients to experience their first (or second or third...) wonderful river cruise is also exhilarating for me.

I'm relatively new to the travel industry but not to travel. I started my agency after retiring from a successful career at Cracker Barrel Old Country Store.

My fascinations with architecture, food, and wine have led me to spend a lot of time studying and experiencing them myself. These passions give me the ability to make recommendations for clients with similar interests.

Because of my frequent travels to Italy and Ireland, I get to sample numerous hotels, villas, restaurants, historical sites, museums, and shops first-hand.

I share these experiences, and advice drawn from them, with my clients in creating their special trip—whether it's a family getaway (for 2 or more), a romantic second honeymoon, or a milestone celebratory trip.

In fact, I'm in the process of planning a trip to Tuscany for my extended family right now. I'm handling everything—air and hotel arrangements, villa rentals, car rentals, tours, cooking lessons, and wine tastings. Sound interesting? I can do the same for you!

Why do I travel?

I get a kick out of going to new places in the old world and discovering bits of history. Whether it's a castle or abbey ruin in Ireland or a fortified hilltop town in Italy, historic sites never fail to delight me.

The joy of sampling the culture, food, wine, shopping, and way of life in other cultures also drives me to travel. You get to meet new people, experience new tastes and smells, and have adventures that you cannot experience at home. Travel really makes life worth living.

Jim took care of everything for us

Reviewed By Denis - Tennessee | Traveled to
Jim took care of everything for us from planning, air travel, hotel room, most meals,free time, Italian school. He did it all. All we had to do was go to the airport. It was a great trip with know hitches or rough spots. Everything was great, I can't think of anything I would have done better or different. Excellent trip and I will use Jim again in the future.

Perfect level of service

Reviewed By Mountainwines - Nashville | Traveled to
Did a great job running a VERY diverse group. Participants on the tour ranged from laid back and easy going to extremely uptight and high maintenance. He handled all with equal respect and efficiency. Easy to communicate with and has a true love of travel, culture and people.

Traveling made easy

Reviewed By Let Jim handle it!! - United States | Traveled to
Jim Torcivia is your man!! Jim is very knowledgeable about all things Italian and Irish. He and his wife have first hand experience having traveled so much themselves. He has actually booked trips to both countries for me. He makes the whole process from inception to completion a joy. He will even make reservations or book tours for popular spots ahead of time for you. I never even thought I would be able to afford a trip overseas, but Jim's knowledge and expertise in this area enabled him to make it all work within my budget. I highly recommend you putting the trip of your dreams into his very capable hands.. you won't regret it!!
