Ciao, Manuela

I just wanted to write and let you know that the trip you planned to Rome for my cousin and me was absolutely the most perfectly-planned trip I’ve ever had. Every detail, from the transfers to the hotel to the Amalfi Coast & Pompeii tour was just the most incredible experience.  And the weather for that week was absolutely beautiful (unlike three days after we left when the city flooded!) Talk about great timing!

I’m so glad you recommended the Hotel Modigliani.  Beautiful hotel and a great location off of the Piazza Barberini.  I got to meet the hotel owner and his wife and we had a nice chat over breakfast one morning.  What a memory!

I did throw in one extra event that I found out about at the hotel and that was a performance of “Mamma Mia” at the Teatro Sistina, just around the corner from the hotel.  My gosh, what an evening.  I used my Italian to purchase two tickets (wow!) and understood more than half of the lyrics and dialog.  Thanks to my Italian tutor, Riccardo, for that one. 

Manuela, you did a terrific job.  I’m so glad you were the travel specialist who answered my original request to plan this trip.  It was just wonderful, so thank you again for everything.  I’ve attached a few pictures for you.
