Since planning my mother’s renewal of wedding vows in St. Mark’s Church in Venice, I've organized countless customized trips to my birth country. Whether you love history, food or adventure, Italy will find a way to romance you. But I have been to over 25 European countries and can help you plan any trip, hoping you will include a visit to my beloved Italy!   Rose's Blog on Italy.

Bailey Marquis Recognized by Travel Agent Magazine as Top 30 under 30
My exploits across 30+ countries have led me from paragliding in Switzerland, trekking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, saying yes to a marriage proposal at the Trevi Fountain, sleeping in igloos under the northern lights in Finland, snorkeling with dolphins in the open ocean off the coast of Hawaii, yachting the Croatian coast, and so much more. I truly believe in the power and magic of travel and that is why, in 2018, I started curating vacations for clients. By 2020, I was designated one of “30 Under 30 Top Travel Agents in the US and Canada” by Travel Agent Magazine.
