I fell in love with France and Italy on my first trip to Europe in 1969 and have returned more than 20 times and have developed a network of contacts that allows me to personalize the trips I plan for my clients. I have had the opportunity to rent houses, stay at agriturismi (farm stays) and escort groups throughout France & Italy. I have been planning individualized tours for clients for many years. I have expertise in shopping, textiles, cultural and historical tours particularly in Italy and France, but also in Mexico (I have a degree in Mexican History). I have been researching genealogy in Italy for 5 +years and can give advice on finding your family information. A vacation is for memories. Let me help you plan a vacation that will be as individual as you are. Art, history, wine, food and shopping are part of the joys of travel. I can create a vacation that will focus on one or all of these areas.
