Hi Alessia, We had a wonderful time in Italy- especially the week that you helped to plan for us. Really loved Florence, and actually took the train back from Rome to Florence for an extra day with the Up with People group. The gondola ride at sunset in Venice was lovely- I got a very nice photo that I am going to enlarge.
Thank you for traveling with us :)︎
Our trip was wonderful! All of the guides and drivers were on time and professional and the hotels ranged from great to good…I’m glad we switched primarily from Hotel Romance to Hotel Lunetta in Rome. The family absolutely loved the trip.

Hello Alessia, Our tour in Sicily was FANTASTIC. Everything you promised was delivered and even more. Our driver for the many days, Fabio, went out of his way to make our time memorable. We would highly recommend him without reservations to all our friends.
Really a great trip and everything was well planned out. Thanks. The Kolbe Hotel in Rome was in the perfect location as we were able to walk across the river at night into a part of town that was less tourist driven (Trestavare?) and really enjoy the dining experience. We loved the rooms in that Hotel as well. In fact on Saturday and Sunday a half of a block from that hotel is a little farm market with stands selling meat, cheese, bread, wine, olive oil, etc…we stumbled onto that when we first arrived and it was a fun experience.

It was easy communicating to Alessia all the things that were important to us for our 5th trip to Italy, but the main one: I did not want to think about anything on this tour other than what I want to eat off the menu. I did not even want to think about what restaurant to go to.
The trip was absolutely amazing! We really had a wonderful time! All of the tour guides were knowledgeable and professional, the directions and the itinerary were perfect! The only issue we had was the day we were picked up from Camera Con Vista, our driver was in a mini bus and couldn’t get to the lobby of the apartment. We didn’t have a phone and Susana was not answering and he was unable to get in touch with us.

Hi Antoinette, It was a fantastic trip! We really enjoyed it all. The transfers to and from the airports and the train trips were smooth sailing. The hotels were pretty good also. We really liked Hotel Arizona in Florence, but weren’t as fond of Hotel San Gallo in Venice, though we do understand that the rooms are pretty small in Venice because of the small land area. All of the tours you booked for us were good. Ultimately, we were happy with the trip and appreciate your work on it.
We had a wonderful time! Everything went so smoothly, and it was exactly what I had envisioned. It’s hard to select highlights because I enjoyed all of it. I loved the hotels, and each city that we visited was unique. Thank you so much for planning this memorable trip. Antoinette, you did a great job!
