Dream of Italy Travel Service

Have A Trusted Expert Plan & Book Your Dream Italy Trip

A trip to Italy doesn’t happen often. You want to make your time spent in Italia the most meaningful and authentic experience you can. If you’ve watched Dream of Italy, the PBS travel series you know that’s what we are all about. We’ve been covering travel to every corner of Italy in our award-winning travel publication for 20 years. My team and I know Italy…

The Dream of Italy Travel Service – a free, no-obligation referral service – matches travelers with one of my trusted Italy travel planners to help you plan a dream 4- or 5-star Italian vacation or villa rental whether it is your 1st or 14th, a honeymoon or a multi-generational trip. Most of our planners create full packages including accommodations, transportation within Italy, tour guides, cooking classes and more. They can also book villa rentals.

Tarie Harris loved our service so much, she used it to plan Italy trips two years in row and is back for 2023:

Thank you for referring us to your travel planner and her team for our trip to Lake Como, Torino and the Piemonte area last fall. The accommodations, guides and drivers were all amazing. The team customized the trip for us based on our interests. They arranged visits with artist’s at their studios, horseback riding, winery visits, museums, gardens, etc. There were no requests they couldn’t fulfill. The rooms your planners booked at the hotels, inns and castles, provided very interesting and unique experiences. The local guides were exceptional. They were very knowledgeable and presented information in an interesting and useful way. The drivers were polite and courteous. As you know, we were so pleased with you referral that we have started planning our next trip to southern Italy with with them. I am so happy that you offer this service. Great job!

Here’s how The Dream of Italy Travel Service works:

Fill out the form below with your needs and wants for your next trip to Italy. Note that we do not do budget travel. A full package with accommodations, tour guides, cooking classes, transportation within Italy, etc. starts at about $5,000 per person.
I will personally review your needs and match you with the travel planner or company I think can be of the most help.
Within 24-48 hours, I will make an email introduction. You and the travel planner take it from there – no obligation, no initial cost. Some planners understandably charge a fee for their extensive planning services.
