Italy Travel Agent Expert

I just love specializing as a travel agent in Italian vacations. There is simply no place like Italy in the world. Italy is home to some great European cities--Naples, Florence, Venice, Rome, Turin, and Milan. The country features wonderful food d...

Tuscany Travel Agent Expert

Siena
Siena

One of the great regions in Italy, Tuscany is home to the lovely capital city of Florence.Located in central Italy, Tuscany features the rugged Apennine mountain range and highlights the shores of the isle of Elba, sitting next to the Tyrrhenian Sea. It is also home to olive groves and the vineyards of the area of Chianti from which the red wine, Chianti, is made. Florence is the place to find Renaissance art and architecture, including Michelangelo's statue of David and Botticelli's works of art in the Duomo basilica and Uffizi Gallery. You also want to visit the Leaning Tower of Pizza in Pisa during your Tuscany holiday. As your travel agent specialist for Tuscany, I urge you to visit the Leaning Tower of Pizza, as there is no building like it in the world. You may not be up to climbing the 294 steps to the top of the tilted twelfth-century bell tower, but you will be impressed by this memorable Italian landmark in Pisa. An icon of Italy, the careening Torre Pendente stands haphazardly next to the site's baptistery and cathedral (duomo) adjacent to an open space called Campo dei Miracoli (the "field of miracles.") Therefore, a visit to Tuscany allows you to see one-of-a-kind landmarks, embrace a culture that takes you back thousands of years, and gives you a chance to escape from everyday life and capture a bit of romance for a while. Take a ferry ride to Elba, or escape to the Middle Ages to the 14th-century Romanesque Church of San Iacopo, a building built by the Knights of Templars after they returned from the First Crusade. As your Tuscany travel agent and advisor, I can make your vacation to Tuscany both inviting and memorable. Email me or call me today and let me arrange a special Tuscany getaway!

Above and beyond!!!
Thank you, Christine, for planning a delightful family vacation. A friend referred me to you, and I can honestly say I was a skeptic. I usually spend countless hours researching for the bigger and better deal, but you definitely found it for us! We enjoyed luxurious accommodations for a fraction of what we were intending to pay. Everything blew away our expectations. We will be back to capitalize on your expertise again.

Happy Vacationers!
There are simply NO WORDS to describe how awesome Christine is!! My husband and I just came back from Montego Bay, Jamaica and it was nothing we could've ever dreamed of. We gave her a destination and the rest was history. Literally!! She listened to what we were looking for and planned us the best honeymoon vacation ever. The best of the best!! All we had to do was basically show up to the airport and Christine took care of all the details and reservations for our ENTIRE honeymoon. She also arranged a special surprise for us at our resort. We were blown away!! I highly recommend her services. You will NOT be disappointed. Thank you soooo much!! Looking forward to many more vacations

Planning my trip was so easy!!!
I usually do all of the research, brainstorming and planning for my vacations all by myself, but this time, I decided that for my anniversary trip I wanted total relaxation. I reached out to Christine after finding her online, and she helped make the planning of our vacation absolutely seamless. During our initial phone consultation Christine took the time to understand what we wanted and didn't want. We emailed ideas back and forth until settling on Turks and Caicos. I never felt like I was a bother and Christine always responded immediately, no matter how many questions I emailed her about!
This was an amazing trip! Thank you, Christine

Best trip to NYC with my Mom
I really wanted to take my Mom on a trip to NYC for her 70th birthday, but didn't have the time to plan it myself with work and kids and life keeping me busy.
Christine was recommended by a friend who's family had great things to say about her work. They were right. She thought of every detail and made us feel so well taken care of. She put together a detailed itinerary with our hotel and restaurant reservations, an outline of "must see" tourist destinations, and even scheduled a car service to drive us around!
I cannot imagine planning another trip with out her help.

I'm so happy to hear you had a great trip with your Mom in NYC. It definitely is a city that never sleeps and I enjoyed organizing some of the "must see" attractions for you. I thought a driving service would add to your experience and it sounds like it was a hit!! Thank you for working with me and I'm looking forward to helping you plan your next vacation.

Most relaxing vacation on a chartered Yacht
It was fantastic! We enjoyed a beautiful chartered yacht and vacationed along the Amalfi Coast and Naples Gulf. I wasn't sure what to expect with a chartered yacht vacation, since this was our first one, but Christine listened to our dream vacation expectations and didn't disappoint!! She reserved a beautiful yacht full of nice surprises, fantastic staff, unlimited hospitality and a detailed itinerary. We got on our chartered Yacht in a charming marina in the city of Agropolis. We traveled to Capri where we visited the city and had an amazing swim in Grotta Azura... one of the most beautifull things I ever seen... later traveling to Procida, we had to taste more delicious food and local wine. We had good weather and calm seas during our journey. We passed through Sorrento, Positano and back to Agropolis... It was one of the most relaxing and pleasant chartered yachting experiences I ever had in the Mediterranean Sea.. Thank you Christine!! You gave us our BEST vacation!
