Dream of Italy Customized Italy Itinerary


Purchase today and you may use your consultation anytime in next two years. 

Who better to plan on your trip day-by-day than Dream of Italy founder and host Kathy McCabe? Kathy will create an exclusive 7-day* itinerary that includes the unique, once-in-a-lifetime experiences that you’ve come to expect from reading and watching Dream of Italy! First, you will fill out a questionnaire and then schedule a phone call with Kathy where she will get in-depth about what she needs to know to handcraft your trip – who’s going, budget, travel preferences, special interests. For each day you will get a detailed itinerary including where to stay, where to eat, who to see a place with (tour guides), what to do (cooking lessons, activities). You may then book the trip with one of Kathy’s trusted travel planners or book it on your own. This is itinerary planning only, no travel is included.

The Dream of Italy Customized Italy Itinerary includes:

  • initial 30-minute phone consultation with Dream of Italy founder/PBS host Kathy McCabe (you will receive a questionnaire ahead of time so Kathy will be prepared for the places you want to talk about)
  • customized 7-day* itinerary with each day detailing accommodations, restaurants, tour guides, unique activities like cooking lessons
  • follow-up phone call with Kathy once your itinerary has been crafted and one set of revisions if needed
  • one-year digital membership (or extension of current membership) to Dream of Italy including immediate access to 170 back issues, 10 issues in the coming year and bonus Tuscan Sunflower Pendant from Delbrenna Jewelry Cortona, packaged in a beautiful velvet pouch ($77 value)
  • referral to one of Kathy’s trusted travel planners to actually book all the pieces of your trip (no additional cost for booking)

*If you would like planning for more than 7 days, let us know after purchasing and we will bill you for $177 per day for each day over 7 days.

If this is a gift, please include a note or contact us after checkout to make sure we have all of the details. We will send out a gift package with letter and Tuscan Sunflower Pendant per your instructions.
