Revel in the Italian way of life,
no matter where you are!


You can revel in ancient Rome, rolling Tuscan hills & bewitching Venice.

You can savor cappuccino, wine & gelato.

You can re-live history in historic castles, rustic farmhouses & charming villages.

You can get up close & personal with agriculture in the olive groves, vineyards & gardens.

And, you can commune with nature by exploring her mountains, lakes & oceans. 

The atmosphere is magical. 

Italy captivates your senses, delights you and leaves you forever changed.

It seems to be everyone's dream to visit Italy.

In fact, it probably doesn't come as a surprise that Italy featured in the 2019 AFAR Happiness Travel Survey as the chart-topping destination where readers find happiness. 

I've lived in Italy since 2001 & have been visiting family here since I was a kid.
I can promise you, Italy is as dreamy as it seems. It's a rich, mindful & joyous place to experience! 

Over the years, I have come to better appreciate all of the nuances, intricacies, & secrets of Italian life.
