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.

Awesome trip overall · Italy - Sep 1 - Sep 21, 2019

Traveler: Maggie M. - Local specialist: Veronica Maggi

Our favorite part of the experience was the cooking class in Tuscany. The view was absolutely stunning and it was such a fun day! We really enjoyed the smaller group tours. I would highly recommend taking the ferry when traveling between the Greek Islands. It’s much more convenient than flying. Bellou suites in Mykonos was our absolute favorite hotel. Beautiful views, friendly owner and quiet and set back away from the hustle and bustle of this party island. We booked a few tours on our own... read more

Our favorite part of the experience was the cooking class in Tuscany. The view was absolutely stunning and it was such a fun day! We really enjoyed the smaller group tours. I would highly recommend taking the ferry when traveling between the Greek Islands. It’s much more convenient than flying. Bellou suites in Mykonos was our absolute favorite hotel. Beautiful views, friendly owner and quiet and set back away from the hustle and bustle of this party island. We booked a few tours on our own that we loved too. We did a biking tour through “we love Tuscany” and would highly recommend this to people who want to be more active. Overall it was a very awesome trip!

Milan to Rome · Italy - Sep 4 - Sep 17, 2019

When I went to look for an agency to help custom plan a special trip to Italy I found KimKim online. I was a little skeptical at first but once we started working with our travel agent Veronica from Bellaroma all my concerns disappeared. This trip was a celebration of a milestone birthday and cancer free milestone so it needed to be special. Veronica worked with me over several months to refine our trip. She was an angel putting up with my can we move this day, what about if we did this and several versions of the trip. From the individualized and small group tours of Milan (thank you Donatella our personal guide of Milan) and Rome to the horseback riding and cooking class at the Tenuta Torciano vineyards it was the perfect trip. Veronica took care of the car rental from Milan to Florence, the train ride to Rome and all the transfers from train station and airport. We had one or two minor issues and she was available immediately to fix them. I knew I could count on her and she would be available through our whole trip. The trip was perfect and I would use KimKim again. Thank you to Veronica for being the best partner a traveler could have.

Rome, Capri, Tuscany and Greece tour · Italy - Jun 1 - Jun 15, 2019

Our trip to Italy and Greece was amazing! The local tour guide, Bartholomew, really made Pompeii and Mt. Vesevius come to life.

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.
