My name is Teresa. I am the firstborn daughter of Italian immigrants. I lived in Italy for many years as a child, growing up in a small town at the foot of a mountain amidst vineyards and cobblestone streets. From a young age I had the privilege of experiencing the real Italy. It is the Italy that I call home.
I am a physician by trade. With the birth of my second child I decided to take a hiatus from medicine to be with my children full time. I have planned countless vacations over the years, both for myself, as well as for friends, family and colleagues. I truly enjoy helping others discover what I love most about this beautiful country, the hidden gems and the local customs that make it so unique. So I decided to take advantage of my stay-at-home status and employ my life long passion for Italy to help others create their dream vacations.
ABOUT MY ITALIAN DESTINATION
I have often found that the most memorable vacation moments stem less from the checklists in a guidebook and more from immersing yourself in the everyday life and customs of the locals. From my childhood years in southern Italy, to the many family vacations in Sicily or on the Italian Riviera, from my engagement on the Ponte Vecchio and wedding in a Tuscan castle, to my honeymoon on Lake Como and the Amalfi coast, I’ve traveled through Italy extensively and experienced many of her treasures.
I can help you pick the perfect restaurant with a sea view in Positano, or the hidden agriturismo in the hills of
Tuscany. I can help you plan the perfect tour of Rome, or an invigorating hike through Cinque Terre.
