What people are saying about My Italian Destination.

Teresa helped us plan our first trip to Italy to see my mom's birthplace and to visit Naples and Rome. The whole trip was perfect thanks to her. The hotels were wonderful and the private tours she booked for us were excellent. If you plan to visit Italy...contact Teresa!

Teresa was wonderful to work with. She always responded to any of our questions very quickly. She had us pre-purchase train tickets, tour tickets, and drivers to wherever we wanted to go. It made traveling stress free!! She even checked in with us while traveling to make sure we were doing ok. I will use My Italian Destination again.....we had such an amazing trip and I'm certain we will be back!

Teresa helped me plan a complicated trip to Italy and was immediately available when we had a missed flight connection followed by flight cancellation. It was so helpful to get tips and recommendations from her. I loved the paper packet she sent with our day by day itinerary, train tickets, aquarium tickets, etc. I’d definitely recommend her.

My family just returned from a once in a lifetime 3 generation trip to Rome , Tuscany and Venice. Teresa was wonderful to work with. She helped with creating a manageable itinerary and arranged accommodations, guided skip the line tours and dinner reservations. She allowed us to craft the perfect family vacation that we’ll remember forever.

Teresa planned the most perfect trip for our family of five based on our interests and needs. Literally EVERYTHING was planned and happened with zero issues. All of our tours were flawlessly done with knowledgeable, engaging guides. Our apartments were superbly located, clean. Dinner reservations that were difficult for me to make on my own because of the language barrier, she handled it immediately. I can’t say enough good things. Perfection.

Teresa planned our 9 day trip to Rome, Venice and Florence. The trip was for a family of four. Everything was organized and exactly what we needed. She is always available and will make any trip 5 stars. We were not disappointed and forever grateful for her help and expertise!

I can’t thank Teresa enough for the collaboration on a trip my family has been dreaming about for years. My husband still has family in northern Italy and his parents spend a good chunk of time there a few times a year. We, however, have not been there in 25 years and when we went for our honeymoon back then, we only went to the small (but lovely) town where his family is from. We are sending our second off to college this year and were worried that our “family” vacations with the whole family were coming to an end. So we started exploring. Then my sister-in-law whose kids are the same ages as mine wanted in too. So with a few small things planned, now I was planning for 13 instead of 6. I heard about Teresa and inquired. Well, clearly it was a great choice. EVERYTHING was done. I told her what we were interested in and a few chats and emails later, we had the most amazing trip planned. All we had to do was follow along in the booklet she put together. From portable WiFi that saved us many hundreds from our original plan through our phone carrier (and kept all 9 teens happy), to our train tickets, car rentals, skip the line tours, FANTASTIC tour guides that kept us (even the younger kiddos) fully engaged, great restaurant recommendations, and even little details (like where to wait in the train station when they only post the track minutes before departure!), each day was better than the last. We covered Rome, Pompeii, Sorrento, Tuscany (lots of day trips from one central location....still dreaming of this!), Venice and Bassano del Grappa (with trip to Dolomites) I have been telling everyone about her. Use her!! Now I’m itching to go back to explore some more! I wish we had “semester abroad” options at age 50! I’d be keeping Teresa on speed dial for that!

Teresa was an excellent resource for our 2 week trip to Italy this summer. Her recommendations were spot on and connections to guides very valuable. We might not have tried a food tour (a favorite) without her recommendation. She was very responsive to our many questions, before and during the trip. Would highly recommend her services to others, especially if you'd like help with the logistics.

Teresa was such a pleasure to work with to help plan our vacation to Italy. She helped us plan tours that were perfect for us. Teresa thought of many details that we hadn't thought of, which helped make our trip seamless. We really felt we got the most out of our vacation because of Teresa's help.

We had a fabulous trip to Italy, thanks to Teresa! It’s the little details that lead to great memories and she completely has that covered. No matter what type of trip, she customizes it to fit you. Her suggestions made the trip special and unforgettable. Several times, she found much more reasonable prices than we did. And knowing that she has your back if there is a problem is priceless! Our flight was delayed and we missed the connection to Italy. Teresa was on it right away and called the apartment where we were staying and rearranged everything. Again, priceless!

Teresa was recommended by my aunt and uncle who visited Italy several times with her help and raved about the tours they went on. I was going with a group of 5 people and it was all our first times visiting Italy, so we needed someone who could help guide us on where to go/what to do/where to eat! We visited Florence, Venice and Rome all within 8 days and Teresa booked all our tours for our group. Each of the tours came with skip the line tickets (so clutch!) and fantastic guided tours. Our tour guide in Venice was so knowledgeable and fun.
Our favorite tour was the food and wine tour in Rome, which we would have never known to book without her. Teresa helped with everything from hotels, time management and transportation. I can’t wait to go back and explore the coast and I will be calling up Teresa again!

Teresa was WONDERFUL. She planned a day trip for us to the Amalfi Coast 3 days before we went and it was very last minute as we were already in Italy. She was quick, very helpful, and planned EVERYTHING for us, which made it so easy and nice. Would definitely use her again and hope to return to Italy again soon.

Teresa was instrumental in connecting me, my brother, and my two children (ages 10 and 14) with unforgettable experiences in Rome including a food tour, cooking class, and a walking tour (the latter on a holiday). Our time in Italy was brief and she helped maximize our enjoyment. I highly recommend her travel services and will definitely be calling on her again in the future. She was very organized, professional, and enthusiastic.

Found this gem of a coordinator thru a mutual friend and we couldn’t be happier with our last minute travel between Rome and Florence. Teresa arranged private transfers for us, private tours by locals and a boutique hotel that was perfectly central in Florence and everything we wanted. We couldn’t be happier with Teresa and her travel plans tailored to meet our needs and desires.

We were flying out of Miami on Monday night, 9/11, to Rome on our 10 day planned trip. Well, as life would have it, Irma (storm) rolled into Florida on Sunday, 9/10, hitting Miami with a wallop causing major flooding closing the Miami airport. In the end we rescheduled the flight for Wednesday, 9/13, and left Miami for our beautiful Italian vacation. As you can imagine, this required Teresa to reshuffle the scheduled tours, hotels, etc., and through this entire process Teresa was a joy to work with - that alone reduced a great amount of stress on my part. Considering the circumstances surrounding the start of our journey the trip was a tremendous success. Like someone else mentioned, without her assistance, her knowledge, her guidance concerning restaurants, sites to see, local tours, train stations in Roma an Napoli, we would have missed so much. Grazie mille “My Italian Destination”.

My Italian destination, Teresa, was truly incredible in planning the perfect trip for my boyfriend and I. After my boyfriend took the bar, we had the most incredible, relaxing week in Positano. With the help of Teresa, our hotel was a handful of steps from the beach and we were given an abundance of top notch recommendations from the driver she set us up with. The boat tours she arranged for us were beyond perfect and we created incredible memories in every grotto around Capri and along the Amalfi coast. After a week in Positano, relaxed and sun kissed, we headed to Florence where thanks to Teresa we were in the middle of EVERYTHING. There wasn't anywhere we didn't or couldn't walk to! From there we ended our journey in Rome we were felt like royalty at the hotel she recommended. After eating our faces off in pizza and gelato, all we can do is count down the days until our next trip! I know that when the time comes to book our next trip, Teresa will be the one we call! We are so lucky to have had her in our corner supporting our every step in Italy and showering us with only the greatest of recommendations. She's the best!!!!

Teresa planned an incredible two week trip for us! She spent time getting to know us and our goals for visiting Italy. She personalized every aspect of our trip. She also was easily available when plans changed, like our tour guide having to cancel because of an illness. Teresa is clearly one of the best. We can't wait to plan our next trip with her!

My sister, mother, and I debated for over a year where we should go to celebrate a 40th and 70th birthday. We wanted to do something out of the ordinary for us - a different country, something spectacular, however we felt completely overwhelmed with the planning. I can't begin to express what a special trip Teresa planned for us; from hotel/restaurant recommendations, to the most personable driver who made us feel like family, a cooking class, boat tour around Positano, to guiding us on highlights to see in Rome. We did it in 8 short days that will always be amazing lifetime memories. Teresa took all the stress out of the planning process. Her connections and knowledge are worth every penny. I can't say enough positive things about this service.....Thank you Teresa!!

We just returned from an indescribable family vacation to beautiful Italy! Teresa planned, suggested and organized an amazing trip! She listened to all my ideas, wishes and orchestrated an amazing adventure. It was a large order, 2 parents, 3 kids under the age of 10. She created an amazing, fun trip that kept us all happy and interested! Her organization and attention to detail was extraordinary. She thought and suggested things I hadn't even thought of. Having her plan and help us make this trip happen was such a huge help with our busy schedules! Thanks My Italian Destination!!

Teresa was awesome. She created a wonderful vacation for my college age son, niece and me. Her tour guide recommendations were excellent and made our trip. The app with all our travel information (including train tickets) all in one place was worth the price of service on its own. Definitely recommend.

Finding Teresa to plan our honeymoon was truly a blessing. She put together a trip that we couldn’t have dreamed of doing on our own. She set us up with amazing tour guides in each region that took us to some really magical places. All excursions and tours she booked were home runs. It would be a mistake to go to Italy and not use Teresa’s services. Can’t wait to work with her again.

We just returned from a 2 1/2 week trip to Italy with my family of four from San Francisco to celebrate my 50th birthday. We had a wonderful experience with Teresa. She made travel seamless and effortless with private transfers, vetted private tour guides, lodging arrangements, and local suggestions for restaurants and gelato of course! She is very responsive and walked us through every step of our trip in advance down to each detail including how to find the platform for our train. We were in Rome, Florence and Tuscany and she made connections with each of our lodging hosts so that if we needed to arrive early or leave late, they all were well aware in advance and were accommodating and helpful. Thank you Teresa for helping create a stress free and enjoyable trip to Italy! Grazie mille!

My family of 5 just returned from a weeklong trip to Italy. Teresa planned a perfect vacation for us. We flew into Venice and then she arranged our train to Rome. There, she arranged private tours of the Coliseum, the Vatican, Tuscany, Pompeii and Amalfi. She also arranged an afternoon cooking class which was beyond better than expected. She helped us pick out amazing lodgings. The trip was perfect in every way. All of her vendors were gracious and timely. I could not have asked for a better trip. Thank you so much Teresa !!

Highly recommend it. Teresa was so well organized and knowledgeable about the area and she truly cares to make sure everything is well planned. She recommended few tours that I wouldn’t have thought about on my own and my kids absolutely loved it. Couldn’t have done it on our own. Do not think twice about using the services of this company. You would love it.

Teresa is the best! I called her two weeks before my trip to Italy! We were going to two cities and I realized I had nothing planned and was overwhelmed! We chatted and I told her the specs. Active family, two loud boys, nothing thrill-seeking, and we wanted hands on Italian experience. And that’s what we got! I didn’t have to do anything but arrive in Italy and we had the trip of a lifetime!

Teresa was recommended to us by good friends who visited Italy last summer with her help. And I am glad they did. We were planning to visit Rome, Pompeii, Florence and Venice all in 8 days so we needed someone to help us plan to get the most of this quick trip since we were visiting so many places. Teresa was great and booked all of our tours. Every tour she booked for us came with skip the line tickets and excellent private guides. The day we visited the Colosseum the wait time in line was 2 hours! But our guide just walked us right in a back gate with no waiting. Same with our Vatican Tour. It is certainly worth the extra money when time is limited. She also recommended some tours and activities we would have never thought of ourselves that we thoroughly enjoyed. She helped with everything from hotels, to tours to train tickets to time management. We would highly recommend using Teresa to help plan your dream Italy vacation.

I could not have planned this trip without Teresa. Once I learned about her background and expertise in Italian vacations, I was sold. I knew I would not have the time and energy to properly plan our trip to meet our college son who was studying abroad in Florence. Based on our desires, Teresa made many suggestions and booked everything from food tasting tours, tour guides, restaurants, private transportation, an apartment in Florence and the list goes on. We had a blast in Florence, Bologna, visiting Pisa, Lucca, and finally Venice. A bonus was her knowledge of local foods, drinks, and customs which meant we had the best papa al pomodoro in Florence and aparol spritzer in Venice. I have already recommended her to friends!

We had planned a trip to Rome for Spring Break many months ago, but had dropped the ball with planning any tours or experiences. My best friend Angela had read about Teresa and her business planning trips to Italy. We called her on a Sunday afternoon for our trip beginning on TUESDAY, just a couple days away! Teresa did not let us down. I am still amazed she planned so many experiences that the adults and kids in our group enjoyed tremendously. It was not our first trip to Rome, but it felt like it because the tour guides shared so much knowledge with us that it felt brand new. Teresa's help saved us lots of money in the long run and guaranteed the best companies. We will definitely ask for Teresa's services for our future visits to Italy.

I just concluded my trip with My Italian destination and all I can say is INCREDIBLE! My Italy expert planned a trip to southern Italy which included lodging in three towns, a major city, a small town and a beach town. The activities planned took into account my two elementary school age boys so they were always engaged. The tours planned were things I would not have found myself. From the Roman food tour... to the Gladiator Training... to the James Beard restaurant in a city built into a mountain... to Pompeii.. to swimming in the grottos and eating fresh fish caught that morning it all was incredible. Well worth the investment. My family has unforgettable memories thanks to My Italian Destination!

We wanted to take our two sons to Europe to celebrate their graduations. The history, food and warmth of the culture made Italy our first choice. We wanted to experience it, not just visit it. Teresa made this adventure one of the most cherished family memories for us. She listened to what we thought we wanted and provided what we dreamed of. Everyday we felt like we were shown memorable historic sites by a knowledgeable neighbor that truly loved each city, unlimited dining choices and every detail addressed. An amazing way to travel and can't wait to do it again!

I utilized My Italian Destination for my first trip to Italy in May 2017. I must say that Teresa could not have been more knowledgeable, resourceful, and just a pleasure to work with! I am writing this review two days after returning from my two-week trip, and it was the most amazing experience: Rome, Florence, Tuscany, Amalfi. A BIG Thank You to MID and Teresa, for your guidance and helping me to set up a trip to Italy which far exceeded my expectations!!
