Tranquil Calabria Italy
Tranquil Calabria Italy

Though I began with Travel Leaders – Travel Center when it was still Carlson-Wagonlit (almost 20 years ago), my love of travel began while I was studying abroad in Southern France. Not only did I leap at the opportunity to revel in the enchanting beauty that is Provence and sample many fine wines, I also visited much of Western Europe, with Italy quickly becoming my favorite destination. I am immensely proud of my Italian heritage and, needless to say, I have been back many times since that first fateful trip. My travel specialties center around places with rich history and vibrant cultures, where learning local customs and culinary dishes become experiences my clients savor forever. If your dream itinerary contains guided tours of World Heritage Sites, centers of arts and theater, and cooking classes where meals are authentically prepared in the traditional style, I look forward to planning the perfect luxury vacation with you very soon!

Customer Testimonials

Booked four cruises with Mary in the last 6 years

Mary Garitone provides excellent service to our family. She took care of all the details and assisted when changes were needed. Mom has mobility issues, and she arranged accessible accommodations and wheelchair service at airports, even with connections. Just enjoyed our sixth Holland America cruise taking advantage of great pricing even in high season for the Eastern Caribbean. Our previous trip was a repositioning cruise May 2015 from Fort Lauderdale to Seattle through the Panama Canal for 19 days.
