Not only does it include the most incredible tips for creating a trip that aligns with your dreams, but Sierra has written in such a way that really speaks to the heart.

She has thought of everything you'll need in your suitcase, wallet, and itinerary to ensure your trip fulfills you–mind, tastebuds, and soul!"

Why Learn From Me

Sierra Busch, Italy Expert and Founder of Creative Edge Travel


I'm Sierra. From my first taste of la dolce vita over a decade ago, I've never stopped scouring maps for Italy's hidden secrets,

connecting with locals and soaking up the authentic everyday life along the way.


I followed my passion to work for top agencies and startups in NYC and Europe, planning luxury vacations for VIP clients as the Italy Expert.


But I always felt disconnected from my personal values when working with clients who cared more about the fancy hotel room than what was outside the door.

Feeling out of place in NYC, I decided to do something bold. I left a relationship of 7 years, quit my job on 5th Avenue, and moved to the place where I could hear my own voice the clearly again– Italy.

That spark in myself

changed everything.

I worked for a tour operator there before finally launching Creative Edge Travel to help people experience Italy’s far-flung places, fading traditions, and phenomenal nature through genuine connection with locals.


I have poured over a decade of experience traveling solo in Italy into these 250+ pages to create an invaluable resource that will not only help you plan and navigate a meaningful solo journey in Italy, but teach you how to get immersed in the culture on your own, to discover those off-the-map places and forge those connections that become the most memorable and special parts of your trip.

The local experience is at your fingertips!
