The Ciao Italy Travel story began in 1994, when I entered the travel and hospitality industry as an employee of Alitalia Airlines. Later, I launched my own travel firm, Hotel Marketing Solutions, where I connected travel agents worldwide with hotel reservations throughout Italy. For several years, I even had the pleasure of co-owning a hotel right by the monumental Spanish Stairway in Rome.
An Italian by birth and by heritage, I specialize in Italian travel in part due to my knowledge of the country. But my passion for Italy and all things Italian inspires me to share with you my newest development, Ciao Italy Travel.
My years of living and traveling in Italy allowed me to consolidate relationships with my favorite local suppliers. You will find each based in popular cities like Rome, Florence, Venice, and Milan. My main supplier, Carrani Incoming, has offered travel services in Italy since the 1920s! Because of trusted companies like these, you set foot in Italy with important contact information for each town of your stay.
