The founder, Denise Otero, is originally from the USA and currently spends her time between Italy and London. She lived in Venice for a few years. After an unforgettable experience living in Venice, her love for Italy continues and she has been living and traveling to Italy extensively for over 14 years.
Her interest in travel led her to completing a Masters degree specializing in Tourism Management from George Washington University which adds to her expertise in the tourism industry. Denise also spent time as a Tour Manager for one of the largest travel corporations. This gave her the opportunity to travel all of Western Europe but her true passion for Italian culture and lifestyle always brought her back to Italy. This ongoing romance with Italy and its culture developed into a desire to become an Italy Travel Consultant to help others experience Italy at its finest and on a deeper level. As a result, Your Friend In Italy was created.
