Isabella is simply superb, and has helped me to understand Italy. She plans, organises and leads exceptional travel experiences, clearly thoroughly prepared and researched. Her knowledge is seriously impressive. Her itineraries are unique. She provides valuable insights into the realities of local life from both a contemporary and a historic perspective, weaving significant strands of history into memorable tales. Sharing her valuable insights, Isabella can weave art and history into stories that provide perspective and context, so that we too gain understanding of those astonishing epochs of glorious creativity. I travel with Isabella with the utmost confidence, and am always thrilled and enriched by the experience.
