Hi, I'm Joanne. I'm a luxury travel advisor and I specialize in helping you plan the perfect trip to Europe. Whether you're looking to stay for a week, a month, or more I can help you embark on the luxury vacation of your dreams.

I started Girasole Travel in 2018 so I could share my love of travel with you. My parents started me traveling at an early age. During a trip to Italy during my senior year of high school and I fell in love with Italy specifically, but I'll travel anywhere I have the opportunity to go.

I'm currently based in Europe, traveling the continent and finding the perfect experiences for my clients. While many travel agents use other people's opinions to determine where to send clients, I prefer to see and experience things in person.

As I plan a trip I do my best to personally visit the places you'll be traveling. Whether its luxury hotels, trains, tours or even airports, I get as much first-hand experience as possible so I have all the information you need for an unforgettable trip.

My goal is to turn travel dreamers into travel doers. Whether you want to learn about winemaking (or wine drinking) in Tuscany, take a European river cruise with friends, or see a musical on the West End, I can help you create the trip you've always dreamed about.
