Introducing The Italian Dream Concierge!

For four years, Dream of Italy subscribers and non-subscribers alike have contacted me asking if I personally plan trips to Italy. Until now, the answer has been no, but I’m proud to announce that I have launched The Italian Dream Concierge in response to the many requests! I’ll be honest that the service isn’t for everyone; if you are just looking for a plane ticket and some hotel reservations, that’s not what I will be offering.

As The Italian Dream Concierge, I will offer personal consultations, itinerary planning and even escorted tour services for those seeking a once- in-a-lifetime trip, filled with all of the unique experiences I have written about in the newsletter over the years — cooking lessons, private guides, truffle hunting, vineyard visits, spas, Italian crafts, Carnevale balls, unique villa rentals, etc.

My unique perspective as a writer and Italian travel expert allows me to approach travel planning from the “experience” of travel rather than the “business” of travel. Indeed, unlike a travel agent, The Italian Dream Concierge doesn’t accept referral fees or commissions for recommendations. (You can take our itinerary to your own travel agent or seamlessly book through one of our partner agents for no extra charge.) When media outlets such as ABC News, Travel Channel Radio, USA TODAY and U.S. News & World Report need the inside scoop on
travel to Italy, they come to me. I hope you will too!

I look forward to making your dreams of Italy a wonderful reality through the personal service of the The Italian Dream Concierge.
