128 World’s Top Travel Specialists
Joyce Falcone is highlighted in Wendy Perrin’s Ninth Annual 128 World’s Top Travel Specialists, Conde Nast Traveler, August 2008, page 137)
If your goal is to walk through Italy - perhaps the best way to experience how most Italians live - Falcone has covered more than 1,800 miles of it on foot. Having led walking tours for organizations from Country Walkers and Smithsonian Journeys to the Cooking School of Aspen, she knows which routes have the best views, the most charming villages, and the most mouthwatering delicacies, and she’ll have you stopping to pick porcini with the locals or to smell fresh fennel as you roll it between your fingers. Her dual citizenship - and fluency in Italian- make for close relationships with the proprietors of the small family -owned historic inns that her clients prefer.
