Walks of Italy
New York, NY

Stephen Oddo was raised in a tourism industry family that instilled the value of world travel. He graduated Phi Beta Kappa from UC Santa Barbara, then moved to Rome, Italy in 2005 to track his Italian heritage and become actively involved in tourism. In 2009, he co-founded Erretiesse SRL, a travel agency at Vatican City. Shortly thereafter he partnered with travel expert Jason Spiehler to found WalksofItaly.com, a travel company for Italy visitors offering unique travel experiences. Since then, Walks of Italy has become the largest operator of online à la carte travel services in Italy, a success he attributes largely to social media and content marketing strategies. Stephen is currently engaged in launching Walks of New York in NYC, as well as overseeing offices in Rome and Austin, Texas. He was featured as a key character in a NatGeo documentary about traveling smart in Rome, was a speaker at TBEX Toronto in 2013, and has traveled the globe extensively to over 50 countries.
