Hi Pia,

Traveling to Europe was a dream that my husband and I have had for a long time. We picked southern Italy for our first trip together. You were very helpful in putting together an itinerary customized to our requests. It was the perfect blend of relaxation, activities and touristy things.

At Villa Celentano Signora Maria was extremely welcoming and genuinely a sweet and kind person. The villa room was nice with a great view of the ocean. Location was wonderful with access to the main pier only 15-20 min walk (Going up and down the gazillion stairs made us earn all the amazing Italian food we had!!) 

All the drivers were very punctual and friendly. Communication was seamless. Very happy with all the services. Special mention- Renato Cuomo who was nice enough to make us a reservation at La Tagliata in Positano which was one of our top food experiences in our entire trip. 

The high speed train was fun! Roma termini can be a daunting place but we got a hang of it! 

The Colosseum tour guide did a good job telling us about Ancient Rome. We enjoyed her archeological perspective on the different versions of Roman history. Answered all our questions well.

The Vatican tour was Beautiful Beautiful Beautiful!! Vatican City is a breathtaking place. Our tour guide was nice but she was very overwhelming in giving us all the information. Also we were not given a break in the whole 3 hour tour which was hectic given huge crowds.  But enjoyed it overall. 

The walking tour in Pompeii was amazing and we loved our guide. She was incredibly interactive and gave us an excellent insight into this lost generation and their accomplishments. One of our top favorite activities of our trip!

The Capri cruise was MOST FAVORITE EXPERIENCE OF THE ENTIRE TRIP was a visit to the Blue Grotto. Magical! Ethereal! Only 5 min but was the most memorable part of our journey ! That left us with slightly less time to explore the island of Capri. But we were able to make the most of it on this gorgeous island. The cruise boat / company, driver were all excellent! Highly recommend!

We loved every bit of the Trastevere food tour in Rome! Got to meet some wonderful people from different parts of the world and it made the experience even better. Our tour guide Elena was extremely cheery and did a great job of ensuring that everyone in the big group of 12 had a good time. 

Inspite of all the activities and sightseeing, we did have a couple of days of down time and relaxation that we used to just wander through the cobblestone streets of 2 of the prettiest cities we have seen!

 

Thank you for putting this together for us!
