In 1999 Andrea Grisdale founded Italian Connection Bellagio, taking advantage of her expertise in the tourism industry to create unique Italian travel experiences for the most demanding of clients. Now, after fifteen years of activity in the field, IC Bellagio has become the first Italian company to specialise in offering the most exclusive destinations, as well as having won numerous prizes from some of the most prestigious organisations such as Conde Nast, Travel + Leisure, Virtuoso and Luxury Travel Advisor Magazine. The best travel agencies worldwide call upon IC Bellagio to grant their exclusive customers totally personalised travel experiences in this deservedly popular destination. It offers them a number of services that range from renting villas, planning events, chauffeur-driven tours and transfers, to the booking of unique luxury accommodation and travel itineraries that are perfect not only for individuals but also for families. However, the greatest strength of the services provided by IC Bellagio lays in the unique experience it can offer thanks to its high-profile reputation and the wide range of activities it organises – for example, a private fashion show in one of Milan’s haute couture ateliers, a wine-tasting experience on a terrace with the winemaker and so forth.
Among the true gems of Como Lake, Il Palazzo del Vice Re, which Andrea herself and the Pertusini family decided to restore, is definitely worth mentioning: it is a palace of historical importance that has become something unique thanks to its atmosphere, which makes all clients feel at home even when they are far away.
