What is Luxury Travel to you? Co-host Katy Sewall and I discuss what luxury travel means to us – and it’s not about a red carpet or a black limousine for either of us. We talk about my experiences with Italy Luxury travel over the past couple of decades, and we break down luxury travelers into seven different – but overlapping – types.
Based on my experience in creating luxury trips to Italy for a couple of decades, today’s luxury traveler is not necessarily spending a lot of money. They may stay in a top hotel but by day, mingle with the locals. They don’t necessarily bring 8 suitcases or want to travel in a black limo with tinted windows. They want an intellectually stimulating, in-depth experience, to connect to the culture. They want to have a fabulous vacation, and that means different things to different people.
Which type(s) of luxury traveler are you, and do you think we missed any?
