I like to organize trips as if I were travelling myself. I would never recommend something I would not do myself or suggest a place where I would not send a family member or friend.
We offer stress-free travel experiences that allow customers to experience less of the hassle of travel and more of the beauty of Italy.
We offer exclusive tours as well as customized itineraries in Rome and beyond, Naples and the Amalfi Coast, Florence and Tuscany, and Venice, making all your wishes for the perfect holiday.
My aim is to become "YourItalianFriend" suggesting you unique places to see, right things to do, right restaurants to go and be the one to turn to in case of need.
What places and activities do you specialize in?
"We do cover all Italy and are specialized in tours by train as we really care about the environment, this is why we primary use train for our travel packages; the train is by far the most spacious and comfortable long-distance means of transportation and the most eco-friendly in terms of CO2 emissions, energy consumption, use of space, or noise levels. "
How did you get involved in travel?
"I have spent my childhood flipping through travel brochures in my mother's travel agency and traveling with my family for site inspections and searching for new destinations, as my father has been one of the most important tour operators in Italy. When in the late 90s the family business was sold, I moved from Milan to Genova, my husband's city, where I rised three girls, worked part time for wonderful charity and never stopped organizing holidays for family and friends.
As soon as the girls grew up and I had more time, my desire to come back to tourism brought me to follow my father in his project to set up a luxury tented camp in the Egyptian desert and then join my brother in this fantastic project. "
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"I have been lucky enough to travel since I was a child and then to experience the same sense of belonging to a unique and wonderful world with my girls since they were infants. I have so many memories that would be difficult to choose one, but for sure I will never forget the trip in Myanmar in 1994, when my husband asked me to marry him!"

Italy Trip Review 2019 · Italy - Nov 21 - Nov 27, 2019
Valentina has been extremely accommodating throughout the entire process — from proposing an itinerary, to making late changes in our plans due to weather, to ensuring that our trip was going well. Our trip to Italy would not have been the same without her. I would definitely work with her again should I travel back to Italy in the future.

Family Trip to Italy · Italy - Aug 20 - Aug 31, 2019
Our trip was amazing and it was thanks to Valentina that we all had a fantastic time. From the start of this process I knew that I would need help planning this vacation. I've planned European trips myself before, but I didn't have the time to do it for this vacation. I knew I needed someone's help and expertise. I described how we like to travel and Valentina really understood our preferences and planned a trip that fit them. A perfect mix of sightseeing and relaxation. Our pizza-making... read more
