Meet Your Trip Leader

I fell hard for Italy as an art student and never stopped exploring since. I scoured maps for Italy's hidden secrets, connecting with locals, learning the language, and soaking up the authentic everyday life along the way. This passion led to a career in NYC, where I worked for top agencies and startups, planning luxury vacations for VIP clients. Now living half the year in Italy, my goal is to bring my guests meaningful travel experiences that will forever connect them to the genuine spirit of Italy.

Creative Edge Travel is about slowing down to connect with what makes Italy Italy— its people. We know from experience that what you'll remember most are the interesting locals you meet on your adventure. That's why we couple unique activities with opportunities to connect with locals in a meaningful way. We go beyond the typical tourist sites to off-the-beaten-path villages and farms where our friends and artisans are waiting to share their way of life with you!

5 stars don't begin to describe the amazing 8 days I had with Sierra in Tuscany. It was my second trip to Tuscany and I thought I knew how wonderful it would be to soak up Tuscan culture again. NO, Sierra's trips are not like any I have ever experienced. The trip was full of love, joy, and appreciation. There were no lines or crowds so that one couldn't appreciate anything. Music, wine, food, laughter, learning, new friendships, moments to reflect, these are what Sierra gave me. Thank you Sierra Judy Olitsky

This was such a wonderful experience. We were able to see Florence in a much different way. Meeting the artisans, seeing the often missed historical aspects of this amazing city, and also spending time with the locals. Thank you Sierra for this opportunity.

The trip was great and I saw and learned a lot about Florence. I loved the Oltrano District where we stayed and also the hills of Florence and the lovely people we met along the way. The only way to visit such a beautIful city 👍🏻

I had a wonderful time with a lovely group of people and got to experience places I never would have done so on my own. The accommodations and itinerary was great too. I would love to do a similar trip in another region with Sierra 👍🏻

This was such a wonderful experience. Sierra planned the trip perfectly down to the last detail. If you are looking for cultural immersion, this is the one. I loved the “surprise” visitors that were often planned after a packed day of amazing adventures.
