Custom Travel Planning

Are you planning your first trip to Italy and don’t know where to begin? Or are you planning your 10th trip to Rome and want to wander off-the-beaten-path to explore the city’s hidden gems? I can help!

Custom Travel Itineraries, Designed By A Destination Expert

As one of the most popular travel destinations in the world, there’s a lot of competing information written about Italy and it can be hard to sift through where to go, how to get there, what to see and where to eat without going a little crazy. Traveling through Italy involves a fair amount of trial and error and after 8 years exploring the country, I feel confident steering you in the right direction.

I’ve visited dozens of Italian cities, towns and villages, eaten my way through hundreds of restaurants, explored some of the country’s most important cultural attractions and veered away from the crowds to discover unknown treasures. Wandering off-the-beaten-path is my favorite way to explore and I even had a chance to write about my favorite secret places in Italy for Forbes!

Your Best Trip To Italy, Guaranteed

Each custom travel itinerary is designed with you in mind. Your daily schedule, curated list of sights and experiences, wining & dining suggestions and insider tips are uniquely tailor to your interests, travel style, budget and your goals. Whether you’re into art, culture, food, shopping, relaxation or the beach, I’ll help you map out the best way to spend your time in Italy so you get the most of your trip. Are you spending a weekend in Rome? A week along the Amalfi Coast? Are you proposing in Venice or driving across Sicily? I’ve got you covered.

I just got back from two weeks in Italy that Livia planned for me. I had reached out for her help because It was my first time in Italy and I had planned to see 6 cities. She made sure all my travel connections were timed appropriately and created an itinerary of the must see and do for each city. I can honestly say that she made the trip a success.

If you’re like me, then TripAdvisor is overwhelming. There are just too many choices. With her help, everything was taken care of, including some of the places where I would need a reservation. I especially liked that she included restaurants that were off-the-beaten-path. I also loved the little wine bars or drink spots that I would have missed on my own.

A custom travel itinerary made the trip easy and made it feel like I could relax and enjoy the vacation. Thank you, Livia!
