Why Travel with Me?
This is independent travel, without the worries. Emphasis is on the authentic experience with focus on handcrafted foods and materials. Shall we make some cheese or go out to the farms and sample the wares of honey, hazelnut butter, olives and wine or just have lunch?
My Rome trips will allow time to really know the city. Rome has so much to offer she can be mind boggling. But, she is worth the time. Let me help you. We will reside in a convent in the heart of the old quarter you will have the best of Rome at your doorstep with as much free time as you choose. Or join me on scheduled adventures and day trips.
Rome Part I
Let's hop a train to the delightful Umbrian hill town of Assisi. We will marvel at the Basilica of St. Francis, the painted interior is incredible. Then clamber up to the top of the mountain for the view and explore the castle, that is if the fog has lifted. And perhaps a lunch of pasta infused with truffles? Or let's go to Orvieto for a wine and sausage tasting and an afternoon meander while gawking at gorgeous ceramics. Did you know there is an underground city below the streets of Orvieto? Let's go!
Rome Part II
Many day trips to choose from. How about lunch in Frascati, a wine

"... it was really important for me to do Rome right with someone who knows the city well, and you certainly came through in spades. We would love to go back with your sometime..." – M.O.
"With Susan handling all the travel details, we literally just had to show up to be whisked away in a limo with prosecco. And the rest of the trip was just as seamless. Her knowledge of the city and language saved us time and possible frustration by avoiding less than stellar experiences.
But what really sets apart a trip to Italy with Susan is her knowledge of art, history, architecture and culture - it is the next best thing
to visiting a close friend or family member living in Rome.
Thanks Susan, it was such a great trip!"
"I just loovved the trip, & I know that I could never have seen and experienced all that I did without your guidance and planning and enthusiasm! Your expertise with the language, culture and history was a huge asset. Your pointing out things that we may not have been aware of or of putting something into it's time or context was priceless." – K.M.
