I provide complete trip planning, from departure to return. I do the research, depending on your travel preferences and then present you with options. I am an Italian-speaking American and can therefore assist with accommodations, transportation and entertainment scenarios. Either you or myself can make bookings. I own an apartment on Lake Como and a house in Tuscany, both of which are available as vacation rentals. I also give personal tours if I'm in Italy during your visit.
Ciao amici..Mi chiamo Richard, I am a retired teacher, builder and was employed as a manager for 27 years at the Monterey Bay Aquarium in California. I am completely in love with Italia! I love life and tend to live it fully. My wife Kelly and I were smitten with Italy in 2001, our first trip here. Since that time we have returned every year and in 2004 bought Casa di Mezzo, our apartment in Varenna, Lake Como and in 2010 bought La Ginestra, our house near San Casciano di Bagni, Tuscany. We offer both as vacation rentals or trades. We split our time between Italy and Carmel, California. We have these areas pretty well "wired" as far as things to see and do. We have traveled to other parts of Italy and constantly read and research Italy. Therefore, I can offer additional information. . Full profile ⋅ Leave a Review
