Hey y’all!  I can’t believe how many readers have reached out for help with their travel plans to Italy this Fall!  I’m so humbled by your trust in me, and I LOVE helping you put together the perfectly planned itinerary!  I’ve had a LOT of questions, and today I’m doing an Italy Q&A with the most frequently asked questions.  Plus…..I have a GIFT for my subscribers…so be sure and read ‘till the end!!!


Italy Q&A:  6 Common Travel Planning Questions


Italy Q&A via dei Corinari


Italy Q&A Question #1:  How well do you know Rome?

I counted the other day how many times I have travelled to Rome, and the answer is 15 times…and 10 of those visits have been in the past 8 years.  It’s not possible to entirely know a city (I mean…how well do you know every single corner of your own city) but from a tourists’ point of view, I feel that I am an expert in recommending sites, restaurants, guide services, and efficient and thorough navigation through a city.  I do not recommend a single museum, restaurant, private guide, etc. that I have not personally experienced myself.

Italy Q&A Question #2:  I’m not sure that I need you to TOTALLY plan out my trip to Italy, so what if I already have an idea of what I want to see?

Awesome!  I am happy to work within your interests and priorities to plan your time in Rome!  This is YOUR trip.  What I offer is enhancement of your time in Rome, and making use of your time as efficiently as possible.  If I am not planning the whole time you are in Rome, soup-to-nuts, I simply charge an hourly fee, and I will tell you that time and cost up front before I do any work.

Italy Q&A Question #3:  What if I want you to plan the entire itinerary for my time in Rome?

Fabulous!  I charge a flat fee for that scope of work, and will spend as much time on the itinerary as I need to until you are 100% happy with the plan.

Italy Q&A Question #4:  Do you help with any cities besides Rome?

I only plan itineraries for Rome right now.  I do have resources for Florence and Tuscany, so don’t hesitate to ask!  I’m always happy to share any information I have with my readers!!!!

Italy Q&A Question #6:  What about help with Hotels?  Car Services?  Restaurants?

As you know from this post, I only stay in apartments in Europe, and I am happy to share various apartments I have stayed in with you!  For hotels, I work with a wonderful Travel Agent who has vast resources for hotels in Rome, and I can connect you!  I can also advise on parts of town that are more desirable than others.

Car Services, I have a fabulous resource!  Don’t hesitate to ask!

Italy Q&A Question #6:  Is there something you offer that is not completely personalized, but still has good information I can use!
