Your Italian Travel Consultant: Art Itineraries & Lifestyle


Travel consultancy and trip planning for independent travellers and connoisseurs. Dream trips to Italy, totally tailor-made on your interests.



Three consultancy packages are available:

  • Coral: a full detailed written plan with bespoke and alternative suggestions about hotels, restaurants and activities of your dream itinerary. You will look after all the reservations.
  • Emerald: I will book for you the hotels and the transports but only some restaurants and activities you might do.
  • Diamond: I am in charge to book everything in advance: hotels, transports, restaurants and activities.

Hourly consultancy is also available to fill the blanks of an existing travel plan.


Spend your holidays in our dream houses, which have been selected for their comforts and for the wide choice of activities available nearby.

Look at our residencies in  Tuscany. immerse yourself in the unique medieval atmosphere of Siena and explore the stunning Sienese countryside. Contact us for a bespoke holiday proposal.

There are many enjoyable opportunities: playing golf on the iconic Tuscan hills, discovering hidden corners during a photographic safari, picnicking in the vineyards, tasting wines in the land of Chianti and Brunello, taking a cooking class are just a few examples.

Otherwise visit Puglia, the heel of Italy. New York Post, National Geographic and Lonely Planet have recently listed this Italian region among their top destinations. Great genuine food, unbelievable colourful sea, art treasures, luxuriant olive groves and excellent wines...



Let Read n Tour Italy tempt you with some theme-based tours, which highlight the peculiarities of each Italian Region.

Food & wine, golf courses, castles, spas, winter sports, holidays with kids... wherever you are, your experience will be unique.

EIGHT GOOD REASONS TO HIRE AN ITALIAN TRAVEL CONSULTANT (and live a unique experience in Italy!)

As travel consultant:

  • I haven’t a predetermined database of hotels, restaurants, activities and so on. I always look for the most suitable solution that fits your interests. I don’t get any commissions on the reservations I make.
  • I am paid for my consultancy and expertise. For this reason I can guarantee the official prices of the reservations and I always look for the best ones.
  • I have a great experience of travelling and how to balance relaxing moments and activities.
  • Because I speak French, I can read more travellers’ reviews while looking for the best solutions.

As Italian:

  • I have a strong knowledge of my Country. Geographical, historical and artistic knowledge come from my education and travel experiences. I can suggest well-known spots as well as hidden treasures. Italian lifestyle is in my DNA.
  • I have a deep understanding of Italian way of thinking, of course! A real added value to offer you.
  • My personal relationships allow me to design unique itineraries.
  • I can easily up-to-date my files. Italian newspapers, magazines, ads, TV and the like are sources to suggest new opportunities.



I graduated in Italian Literature with a specialisation in Art History at Università degli Studi di Milano in 1997.

I had been working until 2005 in the editorial staff at Charta, an international publishing house specialised in contemporary art, and afterwards as a freelance editor, journalist and publishing consultant for the main Italian publishing companies, art galleries, foundations and museums in Italy and abroad.

Travelling is my passion and I truly love planning the itineraries all by myself.

I travelled across Italy and Europe from North to South; and then to Africa, UEA, India and Far East, Australia, North America and Mexico.

I experienced different journeys: trekking in Iceland and in the Egyptian White Desert, relaxing with yoga and ayurvedic treatments in Sri Lanka, sailing the Mediterranean Sea, skiing on the Alps, climbing the Mexican ruins and visiting museums in Europe.

I founded Read n Tour Italy to share my experience and my passions with you.
