Growing up in New York surrounded by Italian families, I was intrigued by the warmth and the love they have for their homeland. For me, Italy was love at first sight, bite and sound. I travel to Italy several times each year and have amazing relationships with hoteliers, general managers, local vendors and guides. This firsthand knowledge allows me to guide my clients through this romantic country. To me, Italy is a little shop in Florence crafting perfume made especially for you by one of the oldest perfumers, located in an alley you never knew existed. Italy is visiting Castel Gandolfo, the Pope's summer home, with a private tour of his bedroom with its own chapel, and driving in his golf cart along his gardens and private farms. Private boat rides thru Cinque Terre and Amalfi provided me with insights on the differences between these two gorgeous and unique coasts. Italy is seeping in history. You can stay in a Palazzo in Florence where, up until several years ago, the noble family who owned it still lived. Or going to a winery undiscovered by tourists with an amazing hilltop restaurant overlooking Tuscany while Mama cooks in the kitchen with no menu. Italy is driving to Lake Garda and staying at an amazing mountain property hundreds of feet up with views of the lake and waking up in the clouds. Italy is driving to Verona and crossing the city walls, visiting Juliette's house and standing on the balcony. I look forward to planning exceptional Italian experiences for you.
A stop in Pienza with its gorgeous views of Val d'Orcia and the most amazing sunsets is a must while in Tuscany.
Born in Jerusalem, I have strong ties to Israel. From the ancient port towns with their colored histories to the back-alley restaurants that serve the best homemade food, I know which experiences will make your journey unforgettable. I can arrange for you to dine in the home of a Druze family-a tasty encounter you simply must try-or I'll suggest you peruse the stalls of a shuk for fresh olives, nuts, or handicrafts. Perhaps you'd like to witness cascading gardens that can only be viewed from a hilltop, or learn about the fascinating hoodwink that occurred at the Ayalon Bullet Museum. I can arrange all this and more, and give you the tips you need to save time and money. Tips like how to avoid paying too much for a cab, and when to stay off your cell phone. Whether visiting the site where Jesus is said to be buried or the museum dedicated to lives lost in the Holocaust, Israel will move you. Let me be the one to show you just how much, call or email me today.
Ask me about an eclectic restaurant (and brilliant cocktails) in Tel Aviv, whose setting transports you around the Mediterranean.
