Your Host 

Join Romina Izzo -  Founder of Travel with a Twist

your personal guide and host to The Italian Riviera.

 

As an Australian born to Italian parents, I passionately hold two flags.

Building amazing Italian Travel Experiences for my clients is one of my most satisfying and rewarding roles.

 

Having travelled the world extensively, I have had the fantastic opportunity to live abroad in Italy (Rome) for a few years, studying the language, experiencing the culture and making wonderful lifelong friends. Throughout my journey, I discovered towns hidden away from the usual tourist routes that were for me, so captivating I began to explore the back roads of Italy in more detail.

 

So why don’t you join me, make some new Twist Club friends and experience The Italian Riviera on one of my Italian "Experiences of a lifetime".
