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...

Sicily Travel Agent Advisor for Palermo, Mt. Etna

Palermo
Palermo

For anyone who wants to take a trip to Sicily, I can serve as your go-to travel agent advisor. I know everything there is to know about his fascinating part of Italy, and can direct you to some unique and memorable attractions. As a travel agent professional for Sicily, I can plan a trip that covers heritage sites, historical landmarks, family vacation activities, food and wine touring, or holiday travel. Whatever you wish is my command, as I know how to customize a trip to this popular Italian destination. I am especially well-versed in sites and attractions, such as Palermo, Mt. Etna, Segesta, and Stromboli, so I can plan a vacation customized to your exact likes and preferences. The largest Mediterranean isle, just off the coast of Italy's tip (or Italy's "boot"), Sicily is both rich in history and ruins and natural wonders, such as Mount Etna, located on the island’s eastern boundary. Sicily is a place featuring ancient superlatives, such as Agrigento's Ancient Greek Valley of Temples, and the Villa Romana del Casale in Enna, an impressive building that showcases seemingly endless mosaics. The UNESCO World Heritage Site represents one of the best preserved villas of the Roman Empire. You can also find Baroque art in the twin Sicilian towns of Modica and Ragusa, as well as some of Italy's best collections of artwork in Palermo's Archeological Museum. Sicily is also home to top beach destinations, complete with white sands and palms, and hiking at natural areas, such as the Zingaro Nature Reserve, on the northwest coast.  Besides Mt. Etna, you can witness ongoing volcanic activity in Stromboli, an island, in the Tyrrhenian Sea just off of Sicily's northern coast. The island features the active volcano, Mount Stromboli - known as the Lighthouse of the Mediterranean. Another place of note in Sicily, Segesta, features the Temple of Segesta, a Doric place of worship that sits on a hillside looking out on a rolling landscape of green. While the temple's facade may look Greek, it was built by the Elmians, an indigenous people of the region who lived on the isle in ancient times.  The temple features 36 Doric columns, and is about 75 kilometers from the city of Palermo. The temple has no roof, which many believe resulted from an attack, preventing the locals from completing  and enclosing the structure. I know you will be thrilled to see Sicily and would love to plan an adventure for you. Reach me by phone or email and let's start vacation planning today!

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.

Christine Carbonaro responded:
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!
