Our agent at this Italy travel company was wonderful to work with. She replied to all of of my emails promptly and planned us a wonderful honeymoon in Italy. I wanted to take a honeymoon to Italy, but I did not want to plan the honeymoon on top of my planning my wedding. Using her as our travel agent worked out so wonderfully. She planned everything: what trains we would take, drivers to pick us up at the train stations and airports, group tours, wine tastings, etc. and the trip went incredibly smoothly. I would highly recommend anyone looking to take a once-in-a-lifetime vacation to Italy but doesn't have the time to plan it themselves use this company as their travel agent.
We absolutely loved our time in the Tuscan Countryside. Our agent booked us to stay at the most beautiful agrotourismo bed and breakfast that grew all of the grapes and vegetables they used at their restaurant and in their wine on the property. In addition, our agent planned wine tastings for us as well as visits to the small towns surrounding our bed and breakfast. The Tuscan countryside was like a scene taken straight from a fairy tale.
Our second favorite event of the trip was the mozarella and pizza making class we took at an agrotourismo bed and breakfast in Sorrento. My husband and I arrived to the farm in the evening, and we were greeted by the wonderful family who has owned the farm for the past 3 generations. We were then able to take our pizza and mozarella making class just the two of us, taught by the daughter who now runs the farm alongside her father. It was an incredible experience to learn from this family and then have the chance to sit down and enjoy our homemade pizza and share a bottle of wine on their beautiful farm. This is a great example of the type of experience I would never know to book for myself if I were planning the trip alone. With the help of our travel agency, we were able to have many authentic Italian experiences due to our agent's inside knowledge of Italy.
If I were to take the trip again, I might choose different hotel options than the ones I chose in Florence and Sorrento. Our agent always offered me choices when booking the hotels, however I did not do much research into the specific hotels and mostly went with the base rate options. The hotels we stayed at in Florence and Sorrento were both nice hotels but a bit on the older side. Perhaps we are used to a different style of hotel in the U.S., but I wish I had chosen slightly more updated hotels.
