"Italy is so diverse, with so many options to put together. I love working out how the places the client wants to visit work best, including planning trains, offering advice on food, and which experiences to do."

Hidden Gems

If you visit Sorrento, you must take a boat around to Amalfi or Positano to see the coastline, it's just stunning. It also has some incredible fresh fish served during lunchtime.

The pizza in Venice is absolutely incredible. Light, fresh ingredients, and a crispy base, it doesn’t get better than that!

The people, the culture, the food, and drink are so amazing. I love that they can all be so different in various towns, so nothing is ever the same.

North Sardinia, is such a luxurious destination, really a gem if you’re looking to splurge and enjoy the best of Italy.

My favourites

Venice Holidays
I just loved Venice. It is so romantic, the people are lovely, the food and wine are out of this world, and the sights are simply sensational, just overall an incredible place.
Ca' Sagredo, Venice
Ca' Sagredo in Venice. The building is so historic, it feels like you’ve gone back in time. Plus, the location is incredibly convenient for getting around to the main sights in the city.
