My Background

All I know is travel – I am a career travel professional and have been planning travel for over 40 years. Travel is my passion.

I really believe you need a travel professional to weed through all the garbage on the Internet. I say to my clients – “Would you spend $6,000 and buy a car sight unseen? Why would you do that with your travel?”

Travel is an investment, and I take your vacation seriously! My clients know to expect my personal touch on every stage of their trip, from initial inquiry to their return. I am with them every step of the way no matter what time zone or time of day.

Why You Should Use Me:

I only do business with my travel friends with whom I have long-standing professional relationships – I’ll call Marina in Naples to personally take care of you while your in Southern Italy. Letizia is my person in Rome. Both professional and licensed destination management companies and tour guides. I don’t go online and just call a tour operator and have them design and book the entire trip. – I can’t do that. I love to plan step-by-step European vacations along with you, to ensure your going to have the experience you expect. I need to be in control, and know who's taking care of you.

My Favorite Travel Destinations & Specialties:

I have a passion for Italy – I'm an Italian American familiar with the culture and customs. Traveling in Italy, especially Southern Italy, I feel so at home. I love working on Italian ancestry trips for people who want to discover their true Italian roots.

Spain is an unbelievable destination –There is so much to see. I love the art in this country. The Spanish people are exuberant and beautiful. There is no better way to enjoy Spain than to sit in a café late afternoon enjoying Tapas and people watching.

London for a fun urban weekend away – it’s easy, no language barrier. There’s incredible theater and so much going on.

My “Wow” Travel Moments:

  • A weekend at the Ritz in London – What an experience! I love the tradition, the old world elegance, the incredible service. Margaret Thatcher once had an apartment there. You go downstairs to their private casino and you think you’re in a James Bond movie. To me, everyone should stay and have dinner at the Ritz once in their life.
  • Everyone might go to Rome, but I stay in a neighborhood outside the center of the city. You walk around the neighborhood, buy a bottle of wine for five euros, and meet the locals. To go to Italy and not be with the Italians is a sin.

Great Trip

By: Dr Loretta

Reviewed on: 26 Sep 2016

Joanne Did an amazing job booking connecting flights and hotels. She was able to use my miles, get everything transferred easily and get me upgraded. Which is what I wanted for 12 hours of travel to British Columbia. The same w car and Hotel. The suite I stayed in Bar none was the nicest room I have ever been in. With wrap around balconies, w magnificent views of the harbor. Again, she got my accommodations upgraded. Joanne was available for questions I had during the trip which is very reassuring when your away from home. I highly recommend using Joanne for any and all of your travel needs. You will not be disappointed. Thanks

Joanne is a pleasure to work with. She handled all the details of our trip efficiently and promptly. Our flight home was cancelled so I called Joanne from Iceland and she quickly booked us on the next flight. The trip as a whole was wonderful. We enjoyed every minute of our trip to Iceland.
