As a travel designer with over two decades of experience, Natascia loves designing tailored itineraries that are unique and creative. In her spare time, Natascia enjoys doing sports, especially running in the Villa Borghese and Villa Pamphili parks in Rome, when the city is still as quiet as it can be. The perfect accommodation for her would be a mountain chalet since she thinks mountains are very peaceful and rejuvenating in both winter and summer. In the winter she skis on the Dolomites, and in the summer she treks at high altitude in Lazio and Abruzzo. Among her favorite places to travel is Trentino Alto Adige, where the time seems to move much slower and horseback riding through Alps tracks is impossible to resist.
Having Sardinian-Lazio roots, she developed a love for history and archaeology as a child. The Florence Accademia museum and the Veiled Christ in the chapel of Sansevero in Naples are among the places that impressed her the most. Her favorite holidays would be on the lake. All of the Italian lakes are very relaxing to her, especially for their serene panoramic views. A lake view room is always her first choice when she travels, since it is such a romantic setting. Among the best lake destinations for her are lake Como, lake Maggiore, and lake Garda, while the best activity on a lake would be sailing on a comfortable boat at sunset and drinking prosecco.
In the last 15 years Yaryna has lived and worked in multiple regions of Italy, so she is able to arrange trips from a real insider's perspective. In her free time, she enjoys sporting activities combined with gourmand activities. It's the best feeling in the world for her to do some exercise and then reward yourself with an outdoor meal. She considers Sicily to be her favorite Italian region, since it offers a wide range of activities, good food, and wellness. A few of her favorite destinations are Sicily, Sardinia, Southern Lazio, and the Amalfi coast. When she travels, she loves staying in hotels that have jacuzzi and sea view. Her favorite sensation is sitting outside a balcony overlooking the sea and letting the scents of the local flavors enchant her. A favorite activity of hers is hiking on Mount Etna. The experience is magical for her every time she goes.
With her background in art and history, Elena decided to approach the travel industry as a young girl. First as an airhostess, then as a truly passionate travel designer. She is also a collector of mosaics and crafts. She loves to recommend experiences that allow exploring the authenticity of a place evidenced by traditional crafts, local artisans and the tales of the natives. The best place to stay for her would be in a luxury villa surrounded by magnificent gardens and fruit trees, as she believes that each journey should always preserve a genuine relationship with the nature. Lombardy, Veneto, Lazio and Apulia are her favorite regions.
Throughout her school career, she's been drawn to travel, earning a degree from the American International School of Rome and working experiences in the United States and Australia. As a fashion enthusiast, she enjoys exploring new trends, trying new collections, and wandering vintage and texture exhibits. Since Italian art cities are pure magic for her, she would enjoy spending a night in an art city presidential suite. Her recommendation is to try a truffle hunting adventure in Piedmont, an experience that combines fun with nature. Piedmont and Tuscany are her favorite regions.
After going on a school trip to the archaeological park of ancient Ostia she developed a love of exploration so much that she wants to visit as much places as possible every time she can. Her favorite holiday is sailing over the Mediterranean on a private yacht. In particular, she enjoys admiring the beautiful Italian sea villages illuminated at night from offshore. There are three places she loves to travel to in Sardinia: Porto Cervo, Porto Rotondo, and Villa Simius, as well as Polignano a Mare and Otranto in Apulia. A trip to Italy or the French Riviera is not complete without a wine tasting, she recommends. As an Italian wine enthusiast, she never gets tired of learning more about Amarone, Chianti, and Primitivo di Manduria.
For Inna, wellbeing is the quintessence of a travel. She is a lover of hotels that have spa and swimming pools of course. Her favorite place to stay would be in a high floor seaview room. She also loves to recommend first-class trips on high speed trains between Italy, France and Switzerland, cuddled up with a magazine and a good glass of wine. Among the best destination to travel for her is Villasimius in Sardinia, the Tremiti islands in Apulia, or Ischia island in front of the bay of Naples. If she were asked to recommend an activity to do in one day she would say diving among the marine wonders surrounded by the dolphins in the bays of Taormina in Sicily.
Over the course of his study career, Marco has traveled the world and provided services to many sectors of the travel industry, ranging from corporate events to luxury requests for high net worth individuals. During his free time, he enjoys learning how to cook. He is a big foodie, and he enjoys traveling to different Italian regions just to learn the local specialties. The best place to stay for him would be a countryside resort with a spa, because he likes to relax and feel surrounded by nature. His favorite destinations are Umbria, Emilia Romagna, and Lombardy. In his opinion, food tours are the best way to learn about Italian culture and history as they allow one to immerse oneself in it.
