Pia,

 

Thank you so much for the Honeymoon of a lifetime! It was everything we wanted and more. I have already been recommending you and Cultural Italy to everyone we have talked to. 

Working with Pia and Cultural Italy was fantastic and easy. We picked a trip package that was close to what we wanted and then worked with Pia on customizing it to be exactly what we wanted and more. The personal drivers were all wonderful, on time, and knowledgeable about the area and the history. They made the drives very enjoyable and were extremely professional, courteous, and fun! Our personal tours were so much fun and it was great not having to deal with large tour groups, it was just my wife and I which meant a much more personal and educational experience! 

Naples was full of history and sights, definitely check out the port area and Castle Nuovo. La Ciliegenia Lifestyle hotel was great and had an amazing rooftop terrace with excellent views. If you have to, go out of your way to tour the Bosco de Medici winery, it was one of our favorite experiences and it was absolutely beautiful. The wine and food were delicious. Pompeii was so interesting and our tour guide Francesca was great. The city is so well preserved and has so much to see! Positano was a dream come true for us, and our hotel Bucca di Bacco was simply perfect. We cannot recommend this hotel enough, It's location, service, breakfast, and dinners were all the best experience we've ever had. Positano was so much fun to explore and there was never a bad view, it's absolutely beautiful. We are so happy we spent the most time here. Definitely check out all of the locally made ceramic crafts and limoncello! We were able to explore the Amalfi Coast and greatly enjoyed the beautiful city of Amalfi and fell in love with Ravello. It's breathtaking. Take advantage of any tours and checking out the basilicas, churches, and museums. Sorrento had very cool architecture and Hotel Plaza was extremely modern and nice. Piazza Tasso was so much fun and had great restaurants and shopping. We visited the wonderful Correale Museum, definitely go down the garden path and enjoy the amazing view of Sorrento's Marina Piccola. We had a very fun tour and tasting at Valenti Limoncello factory. The Gargiulo Olive Oil farm and factory was awesome and their olive oils are delicious, we bought a few to bring home and we will be ordering from them in the future! We highly recommend the pizza making class in Sorrento, it's so much fun and delicious!

We had the best Honeymoon and enjoyed our time on the Amalfi Coast so much thanks to the brilliant planning of Pia and Cultural Italy. They did such a fantastic job, we cannot recommend them enough and we will be using them in the future for all of our Italy vacations. The planning process was easy and once we were there we didn't have to worry about anything!
