Travel Tips and Advice from an Italian Insider

Because they have no idea what Tuscany is like.

Plan your trip with someone who has actually lived there. 

We'll make it easy to plan your trip to Tuscany 

When planning for a trip to Italy, you want it to be easy and taken care of from the minute you decide. Let us find the right place for you to stay, to eat, and to visit.  This is for you if you’ve never been to Tuscany. If you have a list of activities you want to experience, don’t worry. We got you.


  • Are you looking for a personal tour guide in Florence?

  • A private driver to drive you through the Chianti hills?

  • A secluded place to taste wine and relax with loved ones?

An example of what we plan is a combination (not limited to) of wine-tastings, cooking classes, cheese tastings, hot spring day trip, restaurant recommendations, private tours through the Chianti region, city tours, marble paper-making & book-making classes, bike tours, shopping tours in Florence, private drivers, and even a search for your perfect accommodation for your family vacation.

What others are saying about Truly Italy trip consulting...

"Katie has lived her knowledge of Italy. Her extensive travels and thorough research provides a lot of information that allow you to form an itinerary and she does it in a easy to follow fashion.  She's a wonderful listener and works with you for your unique experience.  After consultations she's provide follow up information specific to your trip.  Additionally she knows such a wide range of people in Italy that she'll assist you in getting to meet locals and smaller niche type places that are marvelous and off the beaten path.  This isn't a cookie cutter approach. It's a tailored approach.  Katie makes herself available and thoroughly follow up on any questions or needs. I believe I've saved 10-20 hours of work by utilizing her in addition to the fantastic places that she advised us to take in on our trip."
