Expert Throughout Italy
After a 25-year career in the specialty foods industry working with famous chefs and hosting culinary excursions to Italy, I decided to turn in my apron and pursue a career in the travel industry.
Since 2010, my husband and I have been personally escorting small group villa tours to Italy. After much demand, France and Croatia was added in 2017 to our list of escorted tours. I’m ready to assist you with your next spectacular journey wherever you want to go in the world!
With travel magazines, guide books, and the internet, just about anyone can book a flight, a nice hotel room, and even secure a rental car at a good price. So why do you need me to help you with your travel arrangements? As your travel advisor and consultant, I’ll get to know you and your style of traveling to create your vacation from scratch.
Together we’ll design a day-by-day itinerary for you completely customized to your travel style, likes, and budget. I’ll do everything possible to insure your vacation is free from stress providing an enjoyable and a wonderful life adventure. Having first-hand knowledge and experience, I’m able to suggest off-the-beaten-track restaurants and excursions so that you don’t have “cookie-cutter, me too vacation”.
I personally know and work with villa owners, hotel staff, tour guides, chefs, and wine makers to make your next journey spectacular wherever that might be!Countries visited: Italy, France, England, Scotland, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Portugal, Spain, Morocco, Luxembourg, Gibraltar, Mexico, Canada, throughout the Caribbean and the majority of the United States including Alaska and Hawaii. In 2018, I’ll be visiting Croatia hosting an escorted group for the first time on a private yacht.
Testimonial from Repeat Customer
The Ponte Vecchio Bridge in Florence, Italy
Trips to Italy with Anne is one of our favorites:They are a magical combination of freedom (do what you want, when you want) and companionship, (group outings, meals, chill-out times and lots of laughter). Anne knows so much about the area: the history, the best views, the best restaurants and wineries (and usually the owners), the best travel method, (on foot or in a car), the "must see" locations, that it ensures every minute will be well-spent exploring the beautiful countryside. Her extensive research, coordination and first class taste guarantees a luxurious, carefree home-away-from-home. The villas were so exceptional, we didn't want to leave. She always provides a top notch vacation!
