Welcome to Luxe Associates Travel. I’m Amy Doherty, your private guide offering private tours of Italy.
The desire to become a guide offering private tours in Italy lingered in me for years, despite corporate success while living in Australia. Originally from Victoria, Australia, I visited Italy for the first time when I was 14 years old and fell in love with its history and people.
In 2001 I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts majoring in Roman history & Italian from the University of Melbourne and for over 10 years I worked in a variety of management roles in publishing and advertising for companies such as News Corporation and Pacific Magazines. I also completed a Master of Management from Macquarie Graduate School of Management in Sydney in 2011.
In 2013 I decided to take the plunge and move to Rome when I founded Luxe Associates Travel and became an official, licensed guide of Rome & the Vatican City.
I love sharing my passion for this beautiful country and indeed the city of Rome through both guiding and creating private tours of Italy for families from all walks of life. Contact me to start making your day trips and walking tours a reality!
