About the Author:

Andrea Grisdale, a British Citizen, made Italy her home back in 1992 when her position as Overseas Representative working for a British Tour Operator took her to the shores of Lake Como.

Soon after she hung up her Tour Operator hat and began introducing her clients to her Italy, and all that the country that she so proudly calls home, in her role of Professional Guide and Tour Manager. As her clients continued to return to Italy and the word spread, her business today is still growing in a huge part thanks to Word of Mouth referrals, the requests for services became much further afield than her beloved Lake Como. Using her excellent network of contacts throughout the country and sticking by her policy, nothing is impossible, Andrea opened the doors of IC Bellagio in 1999 and began offering unique experiences throughout Italy.

As her clientele grew, so did her team, as the experiences that she offered her clients expanded so did her knowledge, her energy and above all her drive to offer each and every client the highest level of service and services when travelling in Italy and offering each and everyone of them a trip that was 100% about them whether it was a Villa Experience, a celebration of a special occasion, a trip for a multi-generational family, a honeymoon or quiet simply some first time visitors to Italy. Her service and services offered, many of which she proudly tells are ‘non googable’ and are quite simply ‘all about the people’ and an Amazing team of people throughout Italy is what she has created to assure even the most discerning traveller the most memorable experience.
