Ciao! Our trip to Italy, planned by the owner of this travel agency was fantastic! Being our first time in Italy for vacation, our agent planned the trip to my wishes. I really did not have a good idea how to plan the trip, and our agent worked with me back and forth to properly plan our trip. It was our 30th Wedding Anniversary and I wanted the trip to be a surprise (and special) for my wife.
Correctly balanced by our agent, via my wishes, we visited five cities/regions in two weeks. We saw a lot! Rome, Ascoli Piceno, Chianti, Venice, Stresa/Lake Maggiore, with stops in Fara San Martino (where my grandfather came from 120 years ago), Perugia and Florence as well.
This agent and his company are very accommodating and will cater/tailor your trip to your special wishes. He provided excellent recommendations for restaurants and tours, and the tours were all pre-planned. We did nothing, except show up! We had private drivers for transfers to/from hotels, a completely pre-arranged itinerary, and even a cell phone was provided during our stay to contact our agent if needed. We took high-speed trains from Florence to Venice, and from Venice to Milan. Wow… their train systems are very well run!
Unfortunately, the weather (being October) was a bit rainy for many days, but we made the best of it. The only suggestions for improvement would be the rental car company (it took us 50 minutes to get waited on, with only four people in line ahead of us!) Other than that, the car was fine and no issues with the company, after finally getting the car.
I would definitely recommend this company to plan your Italy trip! We loved Italy and cannot wait to go back! If we go back, we will probably visit Tuscany/Chianti and Lake Maggiore for a longer visit! Loved those areas!
The history and religious architecture in Italy is incredible if you have never seen it. Rome is amazing. Walking into Basilicas and churches made your jaw drop. There are everywhere, in every region. There is so much to take in, you cannot possibly see everything, even with lots of time!
We loved pretty much every aspect of our trip. Each day, city/village, site, tour, restaurant had its own special nuance and characteristic of appreciation. You have so much to absorb.
We loved Chianti, the wine, and the bike tour (even though it rained later in the day)! We had a wonderful lunch with the tour guide. We loved the wine tasting tour, totally arranged by our agent. Chianti was our favorite!
Spend more time in Chianti, Ascoli Piceno and Florence. We drove quite a bit, and perhaps I would try to limit that next time, but it is really the only way to experience and see more of Chianti and Italy.
