How long have you worked for Citalia?

I've worked for Citalia for 10 years now. 


What do you love about Italy?

Italy is home to some of my favourite foods – gelato, mozzarella, parma ham, pizza and pasta! I love how passionate Italians are about their cuisine, families and traditions, and I love how much diversity you get in Italy, from the hustle and bustle of the cities, to the tranquillity of the lakes.


Which are your favourite destinations?
Venice is such a unique city. I love that there is no cars or traffic, just gondolas and boats. Every corner you take, there is another spectacular postcard picture to take.

I also love North Sardinia. This region is home to stunning beaches, crystal-blue sea, and some of the best hotels I’ve seen.


What's your favourite Italian dish?
I always love the simple dishes like Caprese salad (fresh tomatoes and mozzarella). It tastes so much nicer in Italy than anything you get here, especially with the local olive oil and balsamic vinegar.


Can you recommend any hidden gems?
My recommended hidden gem would have to be the region of Puglia. Puglia might not be your first choice of destination, but it should be. It has such a rustic charm and beauty about it – the beaches are stunning and the roads are surrounded by olive groves (Puglia is the main region for olive oil production in Italy). The trulli houses in Alberobello are a real highlight for me, they are so pretty and just make this area unique.


What would your dream multi-centre itinerary be?
I would love to combine a week in North Sardinia with a few nights in Sorrento, finishing off in Puglia.
