Other sample itineraries:  These are just a sampling of some of the trips I’ve led.  They can be customized to your interests, desired destinations, and/or number of days.

  • Tuscan Highlights – 8 day trip focusing in and around Florence (including a cooking class!).  Trip, as outlined, starts and ends in Rome but can be adjusted for a different point of entry/departure.
  • Italian Highlights Including Amalfi Coast and Cinque Terre – As outlined, this is a 16-day trip, but can be customized.  This itinerary even includes a brief visit to Vasto, on the beautiful, but less frequently visited, Adriatic Coast!
  • Southern France Wine and Nature Highlights – Yes, we go to countries other than Italy!!  France is an amazing place to visit – there’s so much culture, history, cuisine, etc!  This is outlined as an 11-day trip but, again, can be customized.  As outlined, we would visit the incredible wine region of Bordeaux as well as the capital of the French Riviera, Nice.
  • 5 Countries in 16 Days – This trip summary just highlights an example of the type of trips we can customize and create for you.  This was a request from a client who wanted to visit Spain and Portugal, but also see a bit of Switzerland, Italy, and France.  We were moving fast but had a fantastic time.  I can customize the trip to the way you prefer to travel – many quick stops or long leisurely stops – or a mixture of both!

Genealogy Trips – I would love to plan a trip around a visit to your ancestral homeland!  I’ve visited the small mountain village (San Fele, Italy) where one of my own family branches begins – what an amazing adventure!  Completely personalized to you and your family.  This can be a trip planning service to help map out an itinerary for you and/or I could escort the trip with a minimum number of travelers.
