Today, Antonio and Margaret’s son Guido, and his dedicated staff continue to provide the imaginative vacations, personalized service and unparalleled expert knowledge that our clients have come to know and expect.

A lot has changed in the world of travel since 1961. The caliber of personalized service and extraordinary vacations that we offer has not.

Like many great vacations, the history of

Bethesda Travel Center started with a love story.


Once upon a time, Antonio, a law student from Palermo, Italy, and Margaret, an American working in Paris under the Marshall Plan, just happened to be vacationing in the same place at the same time... They met, fell in love, and not long afterward were married!  Six years, three cities and a handful of children later, they settled in Bethesda, Maryland, and founded Bethesda Travel Center, LLC, with the goal of providing expert travel itineraries to Italy, Europe, and the rest of the world.

Our passion continues to be

providing our clients with the trip of a lifetime!
