Ciao, I’m Heather!
I’m the espresso-loving, list-making Italy nerd whose dream come true is helping you plan your epic trip. I’ve been exploring maps & chasing travel my whole life, but in the midst of raising a family and changing careers- I began exploring Italy.
And like many before me, I couldn’t get enough. My husband and I have traveled, explored and eaten our way through Italy for the past 15 years, and were thrilled to live there for a few years with our kids & pups as well during that time.

Where this all began
While living in Italy- with a pen in one hand, and my camera in the other- I started documenting our experiences both as an expat family living in Milan, and as a traveler guided by food and beautiful details over on my food & travel blog.
When we moved home, I created Smitten Italy Travel Co. to help guide other travelers how to navigate & create the trip of their dreams without spending a fortune or boarding a giant tour bus.
Whether you need a virtual coffee date to ask some questions and get some clarity about your plans, or you want help organizing all your thoughts & wishlist- I’m your gal!
I offer free resources on the blog as well as paid services and done-for-you digital tools and itineraries. Check out the options below, and don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have questions or need some help!
