Contrary to popular belief, the best travel times go beyond summer. If you are looking to get a suntan and have your toes in the sand, then considering the summer is a must. But if you want to travel to places like Europe, then traveling in the “off-season” may be the best time for adventure and opportunity.

According to a study conducted by the United States Tour Operators Association, Italy was named the most popular destination for travelers in 2019 by its tour operator members. It’s also on the top ten destinations based on international tourist arrivals, with 62 million international tourist arrivals in 2018, so there is no doubt that Italy is at the top of American’s travel bucket list.

Steve Perillo is the president and owner of Perillo Tours, America’s leading travel company to Italy. A lifelong apprentice to his father, Steve represents the third generation of his family’s 75-year-old business. Carrying on the legacy of his father’s famous TV commercials as spokesperson of the company, Steve personally stands behind every vacation sold. Steve spearheaded the launch of Italy Vacations offering customized vacations for individual travelers. The online booking system offers access to Perillo’s expansive library of hotels, villas, train travel, private transfers and more to all 20 regions of Italy. Steve remains active in Italian and Catholic charitable organizations such as Unico, the National Italian American Foundation (NIAF) and Sons of Italy. He is also a major contributor to the Vatican Restoration Project in Rome. Although Steve travels eight to 10 times a year, he is most often found in his office with his new golden retriever puppy Romeo by his side.
