Anne's Italy provides an enjoyable, educational, enlightening and in many ways life-altering experience. My wife and I have had the pleasure of experiencing Anne's entertaining and intellectually-rich guidance in Italy on three occasions over the last five years- the first two with health professionals attending an educational intensive and the most recent with a small group of extended family. We have visited Spoleto and Assisi with her on these tours. Her capacity to relate not only to all members of these groups with diverse professional and education backgrounds, but also to connect what she learns about the individuals in the group to the impact of the art and history upon these individuals directly, provided for a highly personalized experience. Additionally, she subtly trains both the expert and novice in curiosity, artistic gaze, and emotional awareness as she connects history, philosophy, cosmology, and sociology into a rich multilayered narrative tapestry. I would without reservation recommend Anne's Italy to anyone of any background- cultural, religious, or philosophical. To be with Anne has been a gift, and the lessons learned remain with me well beyond my time with her. For me, the take home lessons have mostly to do with the power of narratives in their spoken and visual expressions, the importance of community from family to village to city-state, to world, and the Franciscan values of compassion, charity and hospitality.

Hello Anne it’s been many years since my husband Tim and I spent a day with you. It was truly the best ever The other guests had to cancel due to a medical illness and we had you all to ourselves. I still make the Sicilian peppers. You were so kind taking us all around Assisi You will remember us as the couple who left their knapsack in a line cart in the market. We went back and 2 hours later our bag was still sitting by the butcher as if to say I love the smell in here and only in Assisi would this miracle occur Hope you and Pino are well. Would love to get back to Italy just to reunite Anne you are the best memory of all of our Euro travels. Much love. Phillip Greenberg and Tim Wike.

My mom, dad and I spent the day in Assisi with Anne and it was by far our most memorable day in Italy. Being a 17 year old and having a tour guide for the day can be boring. Although, my day was the complete opposite. Anne took us to amazing sights and brought us around in town and showed us the insights of the community. I would highly recommend Anne!!!

What a delight to include local flavors and practices as part of a week in Assisi. Anne and Pino were gracious hosts in their home to our group of twelve. It was the best kind of experience beyond the usual tourist spots- to experience real life in a town thronged with tourists for the All Souls holiday was truly special. Anne is knowledgeable, curious and entertaining. I would love to go back to see the city through her eyes.

My wife and I booked Anne for our first two days in Italy and they were some of the best days we had. Anne gave us experiences that we would not have been able to have with any other tour. We explored Assisi, Bevagna and Spello and Anne helped us understand why each place was special. What made the tours so memorable was the way she was able to introduce us to local people in the towns, including local artists and merchants. It was truly a wonderful two days and I would highly recommend using Anne for your tour. I hope we get the chance again!

Derek and Angela, mille grazie for your note and please know what a total pleasure for me to share Umbria with you two for those days. Your enthusiasm and interest in all made those days memorable for me, too! May we meet again - here or there.
