5 Stars are not enough to describe the excellent trip that this Italy travel agent planned for my husband and me! We traveled to Italy for the first time to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary and from the moment we stepped off the plane in Rome, every detail of our trip was perfect!
Our agent arranged drivers, hotels, tours, and many special moments included a wonderful wine and food pairing in Rome and a fun multi-course meal and lemoncello-making lesson at a beautiful restaurant overlooking the Mediterranean along the Amalfi Coast. And when friends joined us for a few days mid-trip, she made all their arrangements as well, accommodating their requests and travel needs in addition to our own.
My agent listened to my requests - bigger meals at lunch, lighter meals at dinner - opportunities to find our own restaurants - active hiking and bike tours rather than less active tours - and accommodated each request beautifully. In addition, her travel suggestions added immensely to the trip. I had originally thought we would like to stay a few nights in Cinque Terre and she convinced me that it would be better to spend several days on the Amalfi Coast and make Cinque Terre a day trip. Perfect advice!! I'm certain our time in Positano will be the highlight of our trip as it was absolutely beautiful!! I'm so thankful she suggested it!
While we were traveling, our agent checked in regularly to make sure every detail was in order. Her strong relationships in the industry, her attention to detail, and delight in sharing her country were fantastic. She made traveling so easy that all we had to do was relax and enjoy her beautiful country and each other!
I could go on and on describing the excellent drivers, tour guides, sight-seeing, hotels, and meals, but hopefully you get the picture!
Everything! But here are highlights:
Rome - highly knowledgable tour guide who took us to the Colosseum and the Vatican, including the Sistine Chapel. Wonderful, centrally located hotel within walking distance of the Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, and the Pantheon. Dinner at Restaurante Life and incredible wine and food pairing at Vineria Roscioli Salumeria.
Naples - delightful and knowledgable tour guide who took us to Pompeii, and our driver, who took us for pizza at an out-of-the-way spot on our way to Positano.
Positano/Amalfi Coast - Beach front hotel overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea, Haydn Concert in Ravella, Lemoncello-making lesson at a beautiful cliffside restaurant, and our private boat trip to Capri which included a delicious lunch at a secluded beachside restaurant.
Florence - Tour that included the Academy (saw the David), the Uffizi Gallery, the Il Duomo, and what had to be the best gelato in the country! Our hillside hotel overlooking Florence and the Il Duomo. Day trip to Cinque Terre with our excellent local hiking guide who had us tasting all the edible plants we found along our hike, and our bike tour of Tuscan wine country with another excellent guide who was passionate about the Chianti region, biking, and wine making - a perfect guide for that trip!
All our drivers and tour guides - each one was pleasant, professional, and extremely knowledgeable!
Not one thing! It was perfect from start to finish!!
