Veronica Maggi

I am Italian, I come from Como Lake and I personally consider myself citizen of the world! When I was 20 years old I left Italy and decided to move alone for six months to Yellowstone National Park, USA. This experience changed completely my life! Living and working in a multicultural environment enhanced my mind and increased my desire to travel the world!

“The world is like a book, and those who don’t travel read only a page”

I am passionate about traveling, learning from new cultures and I am a food and wine lover! My other passions are dancing Latin American music and experience adrenaline activities.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"Being authentic Italian with an international experience as planning destination weddings and tailor-made trip to Italy, my specialty is working intimately with clients to realize authentic Italian holiday that is the exclusive reflection of their preferences and budget, constantly ensuring a top quality service. "

How did you get involved in travel?

"After my experience in Yellowstone I can’t stop myself from traveling and looking for new cultural experiences. After the USA I moved to the UK where I understood that I could make from my big passion my job! And here I am, working in this amazing unique business!

I am passionate of my job and every time that I design a tailor-made holiday for my clients I sympathise with them and I always do my very best to create the perfect stay that gives them the possibility to experience the real local culture!

Living in different countries extremely helped me to understand better what each culture is looking for and therefore convert their inquiries in a memorable tailor-made trip.
"

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"The most memorable travel experience was right at home, in my sunny country of Italy, when an American friend came to visit me here!

Traveling with her gave me the possibility to look at my country with different eyes and better understand what foreigners people who visit my homeland are looking for and what their “Italian dream” means.

Our trip to Italy and Greece was amazing! The local tour guide, Bartholomew, really made Pompeii and Mt. Vesevius come to life. His knowledge and expertise of the area and the ancient history were fantastic. Dino, our guide in Rome, was also exceptional, he found so many unique and interesting places throughout Rome that made the experience delightful. He knew all the great places to go and how to avoid the crowds. Dionysus, was our guide in Athens and out to the Sanctuary of Artemis, which was a spectacular place to visit, was incredibly knowledgeable and toured us around with a wonderful ability to engage with history. Effie, our guide to Delphi, was also amazing and told such great stories about the Oracle's cunning ways. Outside of our tour guides the places we stayed and recommendations from Veronica were truly fabulous and we loved all the amazing places we were able to see and go to while seeing Italy and Greece.
