We traveled as a three-generational family of 6 with various interests and various levels of travel experience in Italy. This was our first experience in traveling "on our own" with the help of a travel expert. I did a lot of research trying to figure out what to do, where to go, where to stay, etc. and only became more confused by all the choices. Once we started working with Ashley, it all came together so smoothly. I gave her our budget, comparable to major tour company’s group tours, and she worked with that amount and gave us so much more value. She is based in the U.S. but we knew she was available by phone 24/7 and was there for us if any questions came up. I would highly recommend this Italy travel agency to anyone planning a trip to Italy.
Locations of our hotels could not have been better. I asked for moderately priced hotels where we could walk out the door and have easy access to points of interest, public transportation, and shopping and dining like locals. That’s a tall order I know, but that’s what we got. Something else that was special--each of our hotels had a roof-top sitting area where we could gather in the late afternoon, open our own bottle of wine along with cheese, bread, and whatever else we had bought and talk and enjoy the sunset before heading out to have dinner together and enjoy our evening. Our private transportation, and our guides, all of whom had worked with Ashley before, were great.
The timing of our trip was based on traveling in Italy as a family and being in Arezzo to see our grandaughter make her debut in an opera there. Late June, when we traveled, is probably one of the most popular travel times and we had to deal with lots of crowds at many of the places we visited. If I were to make another trip that included highlights in Venice, Florence and Rome, I would choose another, possibly less crowded time
