About

One Day In Italy began as a labor of love, from the desire to talk about my experiences in Italy and passion for Italian travel and culture with those who might be planning their own Mediterranean adventure.  After about four years of giving casual travel advice to readers, helping people with their itineraries and receiving requests for trip planning services, I decided to expand the travel blog into a true travel planning resource.  I now offer three levels of service for those who want to make the most out of their trip to Italy, ranging from general advice and insider tips to full-service itinerary creation and concierge services.

In 2014, after having successfully filed my petition for Italian-American dual citizenship, I decided to leave my entertainment marketing job in Los Angeles and relocate to Milan for 2015, an experience that not only vastly improved my Italian language skills but also enhanced my understanding and love of Italian culture.  It is a true joy for me to be able to help travelers create authentic, memorable experiences in Italy.  No matter what your budget is, you deserve to have the best possible trip, full of wonderful food, beautiful sights, warm and friendly people, and new adventures you will remember for a lifetime.
