 “One  may write or paint as much as one likes, but this place,

the shore, the  gulf, Vesuvius...everything defies  description.” 

   - Goethe, An Italian Journey



I'm professoressa Lisa, Italian language instructor and interpreter.

At the urging of my Italian students, I began to craft Italian adventures. 

Inspired by the Slow Food Movement, my motto is Go Local, Know Local.

Sumptuous local foods & world-class wines,

vibrant local people-  in unspeakably gorgeous natural settings! 

Why not take advantage of my 30-year relationship with Italy?

What makes my itineraries unique? 

It's the people you will meet: 

a colorful cast of Neapolitans- guest teachers, artists, guides-- my friends, 

all passionate about sharing their vibrant culture with you.



TRAVEL ADVISOR + INTERPRETER: Do you and your loved ones have a trip planned to Italy? 

Are you traveling back to discover your roots and meet your Italian relatives? 

Would you like to connect on a more authentic level? 

Lisa can travel with you to take the stress and confusion out of travel logistics, 

facilitate your conversations and enrich your experience.

You relax and concentrate on making wonderful memories with the ones you love.

Let's make it happen!
