About Marucci Travel

After more than 40 years in the corporate business world, Cathy in banking and investments and her husband, Dan, in NYC construction sales, we asked ourselves what do we do now?  Calling on our love to travel, exploring new places and meeting new people and especially after twenty-four trips to Italy, we decided to form Marucci Travel, a home-based, independent travel agency located in Nutley, New Jersey. I have since earned the CTA (Certified Travel Associate) certification from The Travel Institute in Framingham, MA with an advanced certification as an Italy Destination Specialist and VCTA (Virtuoso Certified Travel Associate) candidate graduating May 2021.

From the very first time we visited Italy on a tour of Rome, Florence and Venice, Italy has become a part of us. Since that very first visit in 1997 to our most recent trip to Modena, Santa Margherita, and Lake Como in 2019, Italy has been the main focus of our travels. Twenty-four times we have crossed the Atlantic to visit the home of our ancestors and have loved every visit.

 

What draws us back? How about the truffles from Alba, the Chianti wines from Tuscany, cacio and pepe, Rome’s famous pasta dish, and the cannoli from Palermo. Views like no other in the world as overlooking the Amalfi Coast from the mountain-top town of Rapallo, the Alps from Lake Como, the ruins in Agrigento, the rows of ancient olive trees driving through Puglia and the endless cypress trees from Tuscany. What of the people? Friendly, warm, kind, and affable define the Italian people.

 

Mostly what we love about Italy is the feeling we get from going there and from reliving our trips after returning home. This is our “WHY”,  the reason for bringing our joy in travel to you.

 

While Italy is our most popular destination and our specialty, we will create that same feeling for our clients no matter where in the world they want to travel. Want to go on a safari in Africa? Micato can take you there. A cruise to Alaska or the Galapagos? Lindblad in partnership with National Geographic can arrange that. Through Virtuoso we have a worldwide network of travel specialists on all seven continents we personally work with to craft unforgettable experiences for our clients and all things and places are possible. We design itineraries with the same confidence and expertise as we have in our own trips to Italy. 

 

Our mission is to have you return from your trip completely satisfied knowing that Marucci Travel did everything they could to put a smile on your face and make your trip the trip of a lifetime.  

 

Give us a call and together we will design and realize your vacation dreams.
