She is fluent in the Italian language and understands both Spanish and French which is a great asset! As you can imagine, Maria specializes in the European and International travel market. She loves the multi-generational aspect of her job. She customizes “dream” and “once in a lifetime” vacations for families and groups. Her favorite European destination is Barcelona, Spain. In her words, “the architecture speaks to you” and the culture, food and history is a bonus. Maria takes travel to heart, she takes pride in the service and guidance she provides to her clients. She is known for providing wonderful recommendations to her clients in destination - anything from venues to visit to restaurant reservations.
Maria is married and has three children. In her free time, Maria likes to read. She often reads cookbooks and tries new recipes. Like in most Italian families, food seems to be a theme.
