Laura, Italy & Greece Specialist

As part of studying Hospitality and Tourism Management, Laura was fortunate enough to complete a semester abroad in Florence, Italy. During her time in the country she was able to take several trips to immerse herself in Italian culture, which kick started her passion for travel. After graduating, Laura worked in fine dining and hospitality management. However, she couldn't ignore her love for European culture and decided to put her skills to use at Audley by helping others to discover the magic of Italy.

After two years of designing tailor-made trips to Italy, Laura wanted to expand her knowledge of Europe. As a result, she embarked on a five-week intensive research trip to Greece. Due to her love of the outdoors and Mediterranean food and wine, she instantly fell in love with the Greek culture, the people, and everything the country has to offer.

I'll never forget when…

Growing up in Boston, Italian food has been a staple of my life, so it should come as no surprise that the cooking class I took in Florence was simply unforgettable. Taught by a Tuscan chef who shared the history of every ingredient and step of the process. We kneaded, rolled out dough and shaped pasta to perfection (or at least she did) until we had created four beautiful handmade pastas and sauces to pair with them. While devouring the pasta was everyone's favorite part of the day, learning how to prepare a true Bolognese along with other Tuscan traditions was an experience I reminisce about while I'm in the kitchen.
