Joyce Falcone is considered one of the "Six Italian-travel authorities who open doors..." by "Departures, Venice" magazine, October 2010 issue, page 45.
Falcone, whose dual citizenship and Italian fluency belie her home base of Aspen, has been in business since 2001. This year she will spend more than four months in Italy over the course of five trips, three of which include time in Venice and the Veneto. Well-suited to the region, Falcone specializes in custom walking tours and culinary and wine trips focused on local cuisine, chefs and producers. She also has strong knowledge of hotels beyond the usual five stars. A cooking lesson with Cesare Benelli, chef at the beloved Cove; private tours of Palazzo Grimani, the 16th-century home of a prominent Venetian family that recently opened as a museum entry and costumes for Carnevale balls around the city.
