For a decade, the award-winning subscription travel newsletter/website, Dream of Italy has been bringing casual readers and devoted subscribers the very best travel advice to make everyone's trips to Italy truly magical and authentic experiences. I am often asked by readers whether I can personally plan a trip for them or recommend a trusted travel agent or tour company to plan all the details. Through the years I've met some very good professional Italy travel planners and small group tour organizers -- most of them do Italy and Italy only -- and I'd like to help connect you with to them.
The Dream of Italy Travel Service -- a free, no obligation referral service to match you the traveler (whether you are a casual reader or paid newsletter subscriber) with one of our hand-selected (after many years of watching their work and reputation) Italy travel partners who might be of most help in planning your trip -- whether you are looking for a group tour, week of cooking classes or customized itinerary while staying in a villa.
Here's how the new service works -
- You fill out the form below with details on what kind of experience you are seeking for your next Italy vacation.
- I personally review your interests and criteria and match you with the agent or company I feel will be of most help to you.
- Within 24-48 hours, I e-mail you and introduce you to a travel partner and the two of you take it from there. Dream of Italy does not charge for this service and most of our partners either do not charge a planning fee or charge a reasonable fee. The two of you can talk or e-mail to see if there is a fit but there is absolutely no obligation to book with this partner.
- On a limited basis, I personally offer travel consultations and detailed itinerary planning for an additional fee.
Here's what Bucky Rudella, who used the Dream of Italy Travel Service, just a few months ago had to say:
"Kathy, I just want to let you know that we really appreciated your referring us to the agent to make our travel arrangements in Rome. She was very helpful and great to work with. Our hotel room and location were terrific, and the two 1/2-day private tours were perfect. We had a wonderful time and found the best tiramisu we've ever had (we tried a lot) at Edy's, which was just a couple blocks from our hotel. So glad my husband, Jerry, subscribes to Dream of Italy because we would not have been able to orchestrate this trip on our own. Thank you to both of you!"
