I have always been captivated by the rich art, history and monumental architecture which encapsulates the diverse culture that saturates Europe. My sense of adventure is relentless. Whether it be chasing the Northern Lights in Finland while driving a team of huskies, exploring the unique architectural palaces adorning India and Istanbul, or galloping through the Atlas Mountains on horseback.
I've had the opportunity to travel extensively across Europe and further afield. Italy for me, is the most magical of all the European countries. Each Italian city has something unique and astonishing to offer; from the great ruins that comprise the Roman Forum, to the exceptional glass and carnival masks adorning Venetian shop windows.
As a huge advocate of experiences, I believe there is nothing more stimulating than immersing yourself in as many cultural activities and excursions as possible. There is so much to discover in Europe and from multiple, exciting perspectives! So climb to the top of the Duomo in Florence, take a hike to the volcanic mouth of Vesuvius, and snowmobile through Lapland under the anomaly of the Arora Borealis. My advice is to make the most out of every single destination!My blogs
What my guests have said
Just a quick note to thank you so much for all your fabulous suggestions. You asked all the right questions and came up with the perfect vacation for us. It was somewhere we hadn’t previously thought of but we had absolutely the best time and would definitely go again.
Hannah was brilliant. She sorted out all issues as they arrived and booked a seamless 5 day break. She met all our needs
This particular part of our vacation was arranged at relatively short notice and Hannah did an excellent job of meeting our needs. We were delighted with Il Salviatino as her recommendation. Great responsiveness to our requirements and great attention to detail
I emailed Hannah a brief description of my family and what were looking for and she could not have chosen a better vacation for us. Thank you Hannah
Hannah has been wonderful - she has a wealth of knowledge and was at all times friendly and attentive to our requirements with helpful suggestions. Nothing seemed too much trouble for her and we have been constantly amazed at how smoothly and efficiently organized everything has been! Her attention to detail has been exemplary
Favourite places I've been
Want to beat the crowds in Rome? Take an early morning private tour of the Vatican Museum and Sistine Chapel before the doors open to the public!
Wanting to photograph the Northern Lights? Use a DSLR Camera, a tripod, and manually adjust your shutter speed, so the frame is long, taking a few seconds to capture the lights. The longer the shutter speed, the more color and movement will be captured
When in Venice, take the Vapporetto to the surrounding islands. Visit Torcello’s historical Basilica & admire Burano’s array of lace markets. Lastly, uncover Murano’s secret of glass blowing & explore the fascinating studios where the craft originated.
