NOW TOUR ITALY WITH THE STYLE, KNOWLEDGE AND CONNECTIONS OF THE EXPERIENCED ITALOPHILE

 NOW TOUR ITALY WITH THE STYLE, KNOWLEDGE AND CONNECTIONS
 OF THE EXPERIENCED ITALOPHILE
 NEW HAVEN, Conn., Aug. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Where families of wealth once hired a private guide for touring in Italy, today's discerning travelers rely on consultant Marjorie Shaw to seek out the same pleasures but with careful regard to their budget.
 A Rome-born, raised-in-Italy American, this dedicated Italophile has spent most of her life in the study of Italy's diverse people, regions and history. From a headquarters here and an active Rome office, she operates Marjorie Shaw's Insider's Italy, a travel planning service.
 "The next best thing to having a hospitable aunt in Arezzo or in Rimini or Padua is knowing about Marjorie Shaw's Insider's Italy" said a review in the May issue of Travel Holiday, most recent of a string of laudatory reviews in major travel publications.
 Shaw helps travelers with itineraries, accommodation bookings, transportation guidance and good eating information. She has planned hundreds of unusual trips, including a week-long family walking tour in Tuscany, a gourmet's itinerary of the Piedmont and a 30th wedding anniversary trip in Sicily.
 Her advice and guidance are far more extensive than a guidebook's, always insightful and drawn with an eye to quality and value.
 "Like all of the locally-acclaimed restaurants we suggest, the small hotels where we book are personally known to us so that your reservations carry the weight of our connections," Shaw said.
 Said Travel Holiday: "Among its other virtues, Shaw's inside track to Italy saves clients money by helping them find the best values and avoid budget-busting mistakes."
 Shaw, who operated "Gastronomic Walking Tours of Rome," is a long- time student of Italian wines. She continues her 20-year practice of extensive travels and research in Italy, spending several months each winter discovering new locations and evaluating hotels and restaurants.
 "We serve educated travelers, from first-time visitors who want a perfect holiday, to busy professionals who leave the travel planning to us, to those who know Italy well and have run out of destination ideas," said Shaw.
 The fee is typically $300 to $450 for a made-to-order project of 50 to 80 pages, accommodation bookings and other Insider's amenities -- rail schedules for train travel, detailed driving maps, recommended reading -- and more.
