My wife and I were looking forward to this trip soo much, specially with all the COVID issues going on in the world, AND everything turned out just perfectly! Even with all the COVID restrictions, testing requirements and overall precautions in place with travel, it was an amazing trip that I wish we could relive. We really wished we could have stayed another month plus. Big thanks to our travel company & specifically Marie-Lys for helping us create and live out the perfect trip to France!! I highly recommend working with this team and hope that we can one day work with Marie-Lys once again!Show More
Our vacation to Italy, Turkey and Greece was amazing, the travel designer at this travel agency did a great job of planning our itinerary with having very little time to work with due to our last minute decision to travel because of covid 19, we managed to see all of the major sites and still had enough free time to enjoy some leisure time on our own. I would recommend this travel agency and Zicasso to anyone who would like to enjoy a worry free vacation.Show More
Our travel specialist made the entire process of traveling abroad for the first time painless. Not only was each activity we desired to complete included, but having all tickets and drivers lined up was invaluable. There was minimal thinking necessary on our part as our travel specialist did all the legwork for us. They were also easy to contact when an issue arose that was not because of them.Show More
This is what I just wroteWe were matched with a travel designer and she was fantastic! From start to finish we were able to get in contact with her. She responded quickly and effectively to all our needs, concerns, questions, texts, emails, etc. While in Italy things went as they were outlined for us and helped relieve so much stress that could come from traveling. We would absolutely recommend Zicasso as a company and specifically our Italy specialist. Our tour guides were amazing and so knowledgeable. Our two favorite guides were in Florence and in Rome,(this may also be because Rome and Florence were our two bucket list cities) but all the guides in Venice, Siena, Pompeii, and in Naples were amazing and transformed each city into a memory well never forget. Making pasta with a Chef was incredible and her and her husband are so kind, knowledgeable, passionate, respectful, and very patient with us! Our drivers were always on time, and did a great job answering questions or helping us understand more of the culture every ride we had. We especially enjoyed our driver on our longer drives to Sienna his willingness to make the trip personal was so appreciated. This was an incredible experience, an incredible company, incredible culture and people and we would highly recommend booking through them! I personally have been out of the country before doing things the “Rick Steves” way, or on my own, and this was by far the best way to go!Show More
The travel agency is a fabulous company. Our 14-day trip to Italy was 3 years in the making. COVID forced us to schedule and reschedule the trip. We started with 16 people traveling with us and ended up with my family of 4. Through all of the changes, the travel team was amazing. We used custom tour companies in the past but never encountered service like this agency. They watched every step of our trip and made adjustments before we even knew there was an issue. Our train from Venice to Milan was canceled because of COVID staffing issues. A travel planner contacted the manager of our hotel in Venice who came to our table at breakfast to make us aware of the change and let us know about the new train schedule. They do not overlook a single detail! Our guides were exceptional in each city. I highly recommend using this travel agency. I look forward to touring more of Italy with them in the future!Show More
Eleonora planned the perfect trip to southern Italy for our family! The Amalfi coast and Puglia are stunning and it was the trip of a lifetime. We could not be happier with our experience. She designed an excellent itinerary and arranged exceptional activities. We like boutique hotels and she found some lovely ones for us. The transportation services were excellent, the drivers always on time and courteous. The tour guides were very knowledgeable, especially in Matera. We had questions arise several times due to changing pandemic conditions and she quickly resolved every issue. We are seasoned travelers and have never experienced better service than hers.I highly recommend them!!Show More
The trip was amazing, a once in a lifetime opportunity and trip. My sister and I spent 16 days in Italy for her high school graduation trip, and we had an unparalleled experience. We went from Venice to Florence/Tuscany to Cinque Terre to Sorrento to Rome. Everything in each city and in between was incredible. The team scheduled activities / events for us where we wanted them to, and left a portion of the trip for us to plan ourselves. Absolutely breathtaking, and the team at Zicasso did a superb job.Show More
From the time we arrived in Venice airport, we were escorted to our hotel. It was a worry and anxiety free trip of a lifetime. We were introduced to the culture, history and cuisines of Italy. At the same time, we had opportunities walk around on our own to explore the great cities of Venice, Florence and Rome. The side trips to Bologna, Pisa, Siena, Lucca and Orvieto were unforgettable. This trip planned by this Italy travel company was probably one of the best. We whole heartily recommend them to anyone planning a trip to Italy.Show More

Italy 2-Week Vacation Review: Rome, The Vatican, Nettuno, Florence, Tuscany, Cinque Terre, Assisi, Chianti Countryside, Napoli
This was our first trip to Italy. Our travel agent made it a fantastic experience. We began planning the trip in November 2019, with a travel date of October 2020 in mind. The Covid pandemic erupted around the world in the meantime, precluding our trip in 2020, but the team at this agency allowed us to keep our itinerary and reschedule for October 2021. Happily, we made it. Our 2-week tour included Rome, the Vatican, Nettuno, Florence, Tuscany, Cinque Terre, Assisi, the Chianti countryside, Napoli, Pompei/Ercolano, and the Amalfi Coast (Positano and Ravello).
We appreciated the ability to customize the trip to our particular interests and preferences. We requested boutique hotels, and each hotel chosen by our travel planner was perfect, being comfortable, convenient, congenial, and high quality. Likewise, the various excursions were ideally tailored to our particular interests, including nature hikes, sightseeing, a few museums, tours of historical sites, and cuisine. The guides in various cities selected by our travel planner were truly superior (degrees in history, art history, archaeology, and geology) and all were amiable and spoke excellent English. Some have become friends for life. We also bonded with one of our drivers who was with us for a week. His commentary during our drives provided insights into daily Italian life, culture, and current events. We also learned a little Italiano!
A great experience!

This agent organized one of our top 5 vacations of all time! Impeccable attention to detail. Excellent communication and extremely responsive before and during the trip. I have a rule of never using American agents to plan a foreign trip but I’m very glad I made the exception here because the agent’s ties to the country as well as employees on the ground in Italy mean that they have an intimate knowledge of the best that Italy has to offer. They created bespoke tours based on our interests and these would not have been possible if they were not themselves immersed in their destination. Once you choose this agent though, do listen to their advice trust that they know what they’re doing.
