Ilaria Di Rigo

Travel Design Manager

Hi I'm Ilaria!

As part of the Arno Travel team, I plan trips all over Italy, with a special focus on Emilia Romagna. This region, still off the beaten path, is filled with hidden gems where visitors can enjoy its authentic charm. It’s a land of welcoming people, great food, art and history, motoring culture, sports events, and even the independent microstate, the Republic of San Marino, nestled within Italian territory. Working with Arno Travel allows me to share the beauty and authenticity of Italy with travelers from around the world.”

Lucia Morelli

Guest Relation Manager

Hi I'm Lucia!

Since starting my journey with Arno in 1997, I’ve managed a wide array of activities, both cultural and creatively unique, requested by clients or proposed by me.

Now, as the Guest Relations Manager, I provide clients with highly specialized assistance throughout their stay in Italy.

My goal is to exceed client expectations by coordinating services and swiftly resolving any issue that may arise.

Elena Fiaschi

Senior Travel Designer

Hi I'm Elena!

“I’m a passionate Travel Designer and sommelier in training from Florence. Living amidst the rolling hills, I find joy in exploring hidden villages and local markets, savoring each unique experience.

As a mom and creative soul, I immerse myself in music, art, and literature, infusing colors and sketches into my life. Crafting personalized itineraries for Arno Travel allows me to share the treasures of my heart with mindful travelers, creating unforgettable journeys that capture the essence of Tuscany.”

Antonella Fabiano

Senior Travel Designer

Hi I'm Antonella!

“Originally from sunny Sicily, I brought a piece of its warmth with me to the enchanting landscapes of Tuscany. With 17 years of experience in luxury hospitality, guest satisfaction has always been my priority. Now, after over 5 years at Arno Travel, I’ve found my true passion.

I take pride in showcasing the best of Sicily, from its rich culture to its exquisite cuisine and diverse landscapes. From organizing exclusive itineraries to cooking homemade pasta for my family, I turn dreams into reality with every request.”

Silvia Baldi

Senior Travel Designer

Hi I'm Silvia!

“I’ve been part of the tourism industry since 2013, and joining the Arno team has given me the opportunity to create itineraries across Italy. One of my favorite destinations to work on is Piedmont, about which my past experience in Turin allowed me to deepen my knowledge, crafting food and wine itineraries in the Langhe area.

Being currently based in Genoa, I am now exploring new possibilities along the Italian Riviera, and what I’m always enthusiastic about is going beyond the well-known classics itineraries to surprise our guest!”

Daniela Cappelletti

Senior Travel Designer

Hi I'm Daniela!

Born and raised in Tuscany, between Siena and Florence, I moved to the UK when I was younger  for a few years but soon returned, driven by my love for my homeland, and joined the Arno Travel team.

As an authentic Tuscany lover, I craft itineraries promoting this beautiful region, trying to blend creativity, cultural richness, and family-friendly experiences.

My mission at Arno Travel is for my guests to fully embrace and appreciate the authentic local culture and environment.”
