Guide for the Solo Woman in Italy

Eat Authentic, Shop Local, Travel Off the Beaten Path

Leave the tourist crowds behind & uncover the local experience. Get the tools & strategies you need to finally take the leap & travel solo in Italy – safely, confidently & with an Italy expert in your back pocket!


…but your fears keep you from actually planning the trip?


You’re a unique breed of traveler. You don’t just want a whirlwind trip in Europe.


You want to slow down and immerse yourself in Italy’s dolce vita.


You want to know local characters by name and be welcomed at their dinner tables.

BUT THE THOUGHT OF TRAVELING ALONE TO A FOREIGN COUNTRY IS OVERWHELMING. Along with your daydream come visions of getting lost, not being able to communicate, and ending up stranded– or worse. 

Maybe you doubt your ability to make friends with locals and safely travel away from the crowds...

Everyone’s roadblocks are different, but the results are usually the same–another calling that never gets answered.

How many times have you stopped yourself in your tracks before you even got started? I know your story…it’s the same for most women, you’re definitely not alone.


But the truth is–it’s deeper than your fear of taking a bus in a foreign country or asking for three weeks off work. It’s the fear of going against the grain to take a giant leap and believe in yourself.


Solo travel is a powerful catalyst.

It shows us who we really are.

It reveals our strengths.

It teaches us about our purpose.


Solo travel is how we reconnect with who we are, away from a society that would rather tell us who we should be.


The leap is large, so if you struggle with finding the courage to take it, know that every solo woman traveler has been there. 


But knowing who you are–and learning to prioritize that–is the most important thing you can do for your life.

How would it feel to finally board that plane with a life-changing journey in Italy ahead of you?

Imagine lingering over every bite of a homemade meal shared with new Italian friends.

Imagine feeling so inspired by every charming street, every "Buongiorno" rolling off the tongue, and each creamy gelato.

You’ll swap life's constant pressure for the freedom to reconnect with who you really are and what you really want.


You’ll learn to trust yourself and come back with the knowledge that you are strong and capable of anything.

The total value of all this is over $650. That’s the average price my private clients pay to have access to my in-depth knowledge, resources, and recommendations as an Italy Expert. 

If all this e-book did was tell you how to plan your dream solo trip from start to finish, would it be worth it?


If all it did was inspire you to conquer your roadblocks, would it be worth it?

If ALL it did was teach how to connect with locals and design a more meaningful trip, would it be worth it?


What if it did all 3 and more? ...Well, it does!

I’m not going to charge you $650 like most of my private clients pay. I’m only going to charge you $19.95.


Why? Because I believe the world needs more women going after what they want, and taking a solo journey is the best way to light that fire.
