Our History

Columbus was the creation of Emilia and Peter Mainardi. Based in Vancouver since 1963 and located in the heart of “Little Italy.”

Columbus was originally started to help Italians go back to Italy to visit their families. Columbus World Travel made history with the first direct flight from western Canada to Italy. In the early days Columbus provided charter service from Vancouver to Venice, Rome & Milan.  The agency grew from sending Italians back to Italy and continued with worldwide destinations. Today both second and third generation are working together. Travel has evolved from what it used to be in the early 60’s and 70’s. Columbus continues to provide service to clients who’ve traveled over the years.


Rodney Waugh Rodney Waugh – 1 review – I recently traveled to Italy for 31 days. Columbus Travel organized my entire trip . I was pre booked on seven flights to and from Italy and within the country, three high speed trains, nine hotels, a return ferry trip, a tour of Tuscany, hop on hop off 2 day passes in Venice and Rome and finally a two week vehicle rental in Sicily. Everything went very smoothly thanks to the excellent, hard working agents who took care of every detail for me.
