Viaggi Italiani was born on the premise that nothing beats personalized service, experience, and attention to detail.
While many Internet sites promise special deals, travelers are often unaware of restrictions, exceptions, and fine print.
Making the right choices based on price alone is not always the best course of action for travelers.
We hear too many stories of travelers regretting that they didn't call us first.
Marcello Simone is a native of Italy. Born in a small town of the region of Calabria, some of his first memories of life in Italy are of daily trips to the pristine beach, picking olives and pinenuts, and playing soccer in the street with his big brother.
After 33 years in America, Marcello and his family made their first trip back to their homeland. Though so much time had passed and some memories had faded, the love for their homeland is still strong.
Since 2000, together with his wife Becky, Marcello has been planning clients' trips and hosting small groups to Italy. His love and passion for the land, people and culture of Italy is clearly evident and his knowledge of the language and culture is a clear advantage.
Becky Simone has been in the travel industry for more than 30 years and she has a true love of travel and serving others. She has worked for many travel agencies over the years, but knew that she could best serve travelers by creating a specialized agency on her own terms. She was determined to prove that her agency could provide better service and value than any other means of travel planning. She knew that travelers would appreciate the values of a full-service travel agency that specializes in Italy.
While she had traveled to Europe, including Italy, throughout her life with family it wasn't until her first visit to Italy as an adult that she came to truly appreciate this unique and intriguing land for all its splendors.
Together Marcello and Becky work to continually expand their knowledge of the culture and food of the 20 regions of Italy. They study the language and visit frequently always working to create and strengthen their relationships with local hoteliers, tour guides and other suppliers so that they can send their valued clients with confidence.
