About Us

Ease Into Italy & Beyond LLC was established in August, 2006. It evolved from Kathleen’s passion for her Italian heritage, and her love of travel. Her vision was to fulfill the dreams of people who wanted to experience Italy. She did this by planning unique vacations and honeymoons in Italy, using the services of her personal guides, drivers, and chefs, while keeping within the budget of my clients.In 2008, Ease Into Italy & Beyond LLC became a family business, when Kathleen's son, Matthew, joined the business as her partner. Matthew is a graduate of the Smeal College of Business at Penn State University. Matthew and Kathleen expanded the business to include a sector for students who study abroad. They assist the students as they transition into life abroad as well as their families who wish to visit. Matthew earned an International Business Minor while studying abroad in Rome. His knowledge of Italy is extremely valuable to the students and their families. In March, 2010, Kathleen was honored by the Andrettese Club Inc. for Community Leadership, and for her contributions to the Italian American Community. In the Summer of 2010, Kathleen spent 7 weeks in Italy strengthening her business relations and establishing new associations. In December of 2010, Kathleen was named President of New York for the National Organization of Italian American Women. She serves on the National Board of Directors for NOIAW.

Client Reviews

Kathy's attention to detail made our first trip to Italy enjoyable and very memorable. A wonderful taste of Italy from Rome to the medieval hill towns of Pienza, Montepulciano, Montalcino, Siena and Florence, and  the stunning Amalfi Coast. Kathy's guides and drivers were knowledgeable and very personable --a must for first time travelers.

Thank you so much for the honeymoon of a lifetime.  We loved Club Ipini, Mauro's cooking lesson in Lucca, touring the Cinque Terre, drinking wine at La Crociona Vineyard, traveling the Amafi Coast with Giovanni, Rome with Francesco.  We will never forget our "adventure honeymoon". Thank you for your expertise and sharing your passion.
