In 1999, Andrea Grisdale founded Italian Connection Bellagio, using her experience in the travel industry to create tailor-made Italian bespoke travel experiences for discerning clients. Now, after fifteen years in the business, IC Bellagio has become Italy’s premiere destination specialist, winning award after award from such prestigious organizations as Conde Nast, Travel + Leisure, Virtuoso and Luxury Travel Advisor Magazine.
The top travel agencies in the world come to IC Bellagio to provide their high-end clients with the best personalized travel experiences in this beloved destination, with services such as villa rental (including ICB’s own Villa dei Sogni in Bellagio), event planning, chauffeur driven tours and transfers, unique luxury accommodation and custom itineraries for individuals and families. But the real appeal of IC Bellagio’s services are the unique experiences they can offer thanks to their stellar reputation and extensive network across Italy: from a private fashion show in one of Milan’s couture ateliers to sampling estate wine on a palace terrace with the lord of the manner himself and much, much more.
In her quest to make IC Bellagio not only the best company to travel with, but also the best company to work for, Andrea Grisdale has assembled a staff of international experts that provide high-quality, personalized service. Ever conscious of staying on the cutting edge, ICB seeks inspiration from its internationally recognized Advisory Board and seeks to inspire young people interested in the travel industry through its Academy and internship and work experience programs.
