Sardinia - The Ultimate Wellness Destination
Sardinia - The Ultimate Wellness Destination

Many years ago, a life coach told me I had a Renaissance soul, so I decided to take my Renaissance soul to create Via Mondo Travel & Wellness. Via Mondo combines my wish to live a balanced, healthy life while feeding my adventurous spirit to explore the world. Via Mondo was previously known as Via Mondo Lifestyle Tours, which offered soft adventure tours to Italy and now Via Mondo is a full travel agency able to accommodate all your travel needs. I cater to a variety of guests. I work with corporations, wedding parties and couples, multi-generational families, weekend retreaters and those looking to travel solo. My specialty is tailor-designed packages to Europe and Australia, but I continue to offer guided tours to Italy. As a certified wellness specialist and yoga instructor, I broadened my reach to destination spas and luxury brands, which include destinations to the Americas, Europe and the Caribbean. Via Mondo is a boutique agency under Travel Leaders, a consortium with supplier and vendor connections from around the world. With 17 years of industry skills and know-how, two higher-educational degrees in International Studies and Italian Studies, then add in one of the largest and oldest consortium in the industry, it turns this boutique agency into a travel power house. This local company has international reaches spanning continents. I am able to offer guests quality as well as memorable experiences. Call me today to discuss your next adventure.

Great trip through Scotland and Ireland

Reviewed By joan - Philadelphia | Traveled to Scotland and Ireland
Rosemary listened to my needs and wants. I have a disability and needed accommodations with elevators and handicapped bathrooms.

Rosemary put together a great itinerary that took my son and through Glasgow and Edinburg Scotland and all over Ireland!

It was a wonderful trip and I plan on going to Rosemary for my new vacation. I highly recommend her.

Also, she was really great about getting back to me promptly. Communication can often be difficult, but it wasn't with Rosemary.

She took great care of us!

The best (and easiest!) trip to Florence

Reviewed By Ginny - Morristown NJ | Traveled to Florence ~ Italy ~ Europe
Rosemary did it all - found a great airfare to Florence, a fabulous B&B in the heart of downtown Florence within a stone's throw of the Duomo, and all the excursions we wanted, thoughtfully planned to make a great trip for our family. She made itinerary suggestions and really listened to what we wanted. She helped us have a far better experience than we would have had if we tried to book it on our own. Thank you, Rosemary! We'll be working with you again soon.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Rosemary Mondo responded:
Ginny - It's been a pleasure!! After living in Florence for over a year and spending my childhood summer's in Italy, I love to send people to Italy and really soak up the culture and come to love Italy as much as I do. It truly makes me happy to hear! Thank you and I can't wait to plan your next adventure. Ciao for now! Rosemary

Family Trip to Italy

Reviewed By Kathleen - Nanuet, NY | Traveled to Florence ~ Italy ~ Europe

I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Rosemary Mondo responded:
Thank you Kathy. At times I don't get it right, but I've been working on my craft for 17 years. Over the years, I've learned to listen, which helps me create unforgettable packages. I take great pride and joy in my work. I look forward to planning your next vacation! Travel wisely!

A Great Trip Thanks To The Best Travel Agent

Reviewed By Helen - Laguna Niguel, Ca | Traveled to France ~ Europe
I was planning a trip to France and was too busy to do anything. I talked to Rosemary over the phone as we live in different states. On our initial conversation I explained what I wanted and didn't want. She asked great questions and went to work on the entire trip. We modified her plan very little.
I can say that Rosemary nailed it for me!! From hotels to tours to the travel. I will use her on every trip from now on! Very professional and personable.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Rosemary Mondo responded:
Love Helen! We just clicked right from the start. Thank you so much for your fabulous review. I so appreciate it. Happy travels!

First Class Professional

Reviewed By Susan - Rochester, NY | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
You simply did an outstanding job tailoring our trip to our groups unique interests and needs. The hotels were all very clean, comfortable, friendly and accomodating. And equally as important, they were all in excellent locations- safe and within walking distance from so many main attractions. The transportation service we used- again outstanding. All the activities you helped us choose were educational, interesting and sooo much fun for the entire group (including seven 18-23 year olds). I can't say enough about them. We had 11 days worth of truly magical moments. You are a first class professional and we are so grateful for your guidance and help. This trip was reasonably priced and was far superior to the large group tour (Perillo) I went on years ago. It will truly be forever etched in all of our hearts. Mille grazia!
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends

Had a fabulous vacation to Italy!!

Reviewed By Sandy - Baldwinsville, NY | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
Rosemary was extremely knowledgeable and very responsive and planned activities that fit our family interests. When our bags were lost when we landed in Italy, she rearranged activities and diligently contacted the airlines/airport to make sure that our bags were found and that we received them. She went above and beyond what I would ever have expected from a travel agent. She was an absolute pleasure to work with. I highly recommend her!!
