Italy is generally speaking a safe country. However, as anywhere else in the world, there are some precautions and behaviors that can make you safer when traveling in Italy. With very few exceptions, the downtown areas of all major cities are safe to walk around. Caution should be used in and around railway and bus stations especially in the late evening hours. Pick pocketing is an issue on public transportation (i.e. subway, buses), especially in major cities and tourist areas. Keep your personal valuables close to you and stay alert. You may also consider leaving your valuables (minus what you may need for the day) in a safe at your accommodation and/or keep your ID/Passport and your credit/Debit cards separate from your cash to limit the damage in the event you do get pick pocketed.
We would love to stay in touch!
Perfect two-week vacation
Chiara is the consummate professional and understands everything that Italy has to offer. She helped my family to create the perfect two-week vacation and was available while we were in Italy to answer any questions we had. I recommend Allure Italia 100%

It was fortuitous that a friend introduced me to Chiara who was able to take over and arrange ALL museum passes, train tickets, and of course the audience with the Pope. She was wonderful and relieved me of that task. It made the trip even more enjoyable knowing that everything had been taken care of. On a first trip, I would most definitely encourage all to contact Chiara!! You won’t be disappointed and you will experience more of Italy than you expect!

A trip of a lifetime
Chiara helped us plan a trip of a lifetime with our adult children. She designed and helped us plan our trip based on our needs, interests and budget. She was available to us while we were in Italy which caused us to feel a sense of support. We recommended Chiara and Allure Italia to our friends. They, too, had a fabulous trip!

We swam in a grotto by ourselves, in July!
I was planning my trip in Italy already, when I discovered Allure Italia. We were going to 3 different cities, and it was a lot of work. Antonella helped me finish planning the trip. She made sure to have all the details before proceeding with suggestions; we were travelling with our 12 year old, so that already was a challenge. Even with the 6 hour time difference with Canada, Antonella always managed to get back to me promptly; pretty impressive. Then the suggestions started flowi…

LOVE, LOVE, LOVED Miram, our driver
I so meant to send a personal “thank you” for the amazing itinerary. We loved all of it! My favorite was the villa in Tuscany. We LOVE, LOVE, LOVED Miram, our driver. She was such a pleasure to travel with and so much appreciate her care and concern for us. Thank goodness we had you to plan our trips to Vatican, Academia, Florence, etc., or we would have been totally lost and waiting in very LONG lines.

A group of friends celebrated life, love and friendship
In September of 2012, a group of friends celebrated life, love and friendship, and the joys of turning 60 in the most romantic spot on earth: Tuscany. Long dreamed of, this trip would not have been possible, nor nearly as joyous or fabulous without the invaluable help of Chiara Underwood. She was able to smooth the logistics of people traveling to Tuscany from Philadelphia, London, and Brussels. Her guidance in the selection of a marvelous villa was spot-on. Recommendations for sights to visit, …
