Trip Consultations

Are you feeling overwhelmed planning your dream trip to Italy? Would you like to speak one-on-one with a professional who can give honest information about the best experiences and restaurants?

I specialize in helping travelers get off the beaten path, connecting with the best local resources, and making the most of their time in the most famous Italian destinations.

How it works

We can start from scratch or an itinerary you've already developed.  I'll ask you strategic questions to learn more about you, and start building out your trip with ideas and resources you may not have before considered.

Personalized recommendations

You'll get my best advice for accommodations, dining, and tours and the right strategy for getting from place to place. I will also answer all your questions about language, navigating dietary restrictions, or driving in Italy. 

One-hour via Zoom 

The consultation is conducted via Zoom so I can share my screen and draw from the Feast Travel database of vetted resources. We can also strategize travel using Maps and even book tickets together if you like. 

After the consultation

I will send you an illustrated document containing all the information you need to make your bookings. You'll also receive a complete transcript of our meeting. 

BONUS: Trip Consultation clients get access to our 4 & 5-star hotel networks for complimentary upgrades and VIP perks.

"My itinerary was transformed by Danielle and I am so grateful! She helped me with tips on navigating a vegan diet and she told me about so many off the beaten track locations that I never would have stumbled upon just by reading the popular guidebooks. Worth every penny!"

Louis Higgins

"Our trip to Italy was perfect! And there is no way the trip would have been half as awesome if we hadn't worked with Danielle. She gave us great advice saving us hours of planning at home and hours of worrying in Italy."

Natalie Young

"Danielle gave us incredible recommendations for our family’s trip across central and southern Italy. From restaurant recommendations to non-touristy ways to see Italy’s history, she made planning this trip painless!"

Caroline Rausch

"The consultation with Danielle made our trip so special! Her recommendations for local guides helped us explore Roman ruins and our family roots off the beaten path. Exploring my husband’s grandfather’s hometown was the experience of a lifetime for my entire family. I truly appreciate her wealth of knowledge and guidance in finalizing our plans."

Stella Carolan

"When I spoke to Danielle, I was just starting to plan for our trip. She provided great resources that I was able to use to build into a magnificent trip."

Sarah Boozer

"We returned last night from our trip to Italy and I wanted to let you know how thankful we are for all the help you gave us.  Your wealth of knowledge improved the trip so much.  We had a marvelous time and everything went off without a hitch.  We are already dreaming of what region to visit next and will definitely reach out to you for help again."
