Italy is filled with treasures of all kinds, from beautiful cities to wonderful off-the-beaten path places. You can be a tourist or live like a local -- it's all up to you. So let's start planning together. I am excited to share my knowledge of Italy and my expertise with you, your family and your friends.
Me and my wife, Linda, highly recommend Ease Into Italy. This was our first trip to Italy and everything Kathleen planned for us - from the car rides to the guides - worked out great!
Paola in Florence had an amazing wealth of knowledge about the city and the entire Tuscany region. She planted some seeds that we definitely want to follow up on during a future trip.
Paolo in Sorrento was awesome - so personable and funny. He gave us an amazing tour of the Amalfi coast and we are looking forward to going back again during warm weather.
The help and advice Kathleen gave us created a memorable trip for our family.
We can’t thank you enough Kathleen!!! Our trip to Italy was awesome thanks to your expert guidance and planning! The tours of Ancient Rome, Florence, Venice, and the Amalfi coast were just what we wanted... friendly, knowledgeable local experts who showed us the things we needed to see (even if we didn’t KNOW we needed to see them!) and educated us as they did.
The hotels you recommended were all great and traveling by train was SO easy!!! In particular I want to thank you for the recom-mendation to spend time at the Hotel Club I Pini! We had a wonderful time cycling along the shore, visiting the Cinque Terre and Lucca. The meals at the hotel were superb and Nicola was SO helpful in guiding us on where to go/ what to do.
As I told you from the start, this was my first trip to Italy but it won’t be my last! I look forward to working with you again SOON!!!

I just returned from two fabulous weeks in Greece and Italy and one of my first calls was to Kathy! There were no words that would express my thanks and apprecia-tion for all of her assistance and guidance in planning our trip.
In short our vacation was extraordinary. Kathy and her entire team were simply out-standing. From the very first call her suggestions were spot on. She takes the time to truly understand the type of trip you are planning and then works with her extra-ordinary team in Italy and makes every arrangement.
Her partner, Marta, in Italy could not have been more accom-modating. Every detail was perfectly executed. Every driver was on time professional and sincerely committed to making our tome together an enjoyable experience. I want to give a special shout out to Massimo. He picked us up in Naples and brought us to Sorrento. We en-joyed him so much we arranged for him to be with us during the entire stay. Our private boat to Capri was exactly how I imagined it. Amazing!!!
There needs to be a better word to express my gratitude but until then I can only say thank you Kathy or “Grazie.” You and your team are amazing and to anyone planning or thinking of going to Italy, Kathy and her team are a must. I can’t wait to plan the next trip.
