"The view was absolutely /stunning/ & perfect on a nice /warm/ Tuscany day."

Today we toured Siena and San Gimignano with a stop at an amazing winery for lunch. Carlo was our driver and he was magnificent. Very courteous and knowledgeable about the area and wines. The winery he took us to for wine tasting and meal was extraordinary. Delicious wines (we sampled six) and wonderful food to go with it.

"Pictures do not show the /beauty/ and the /warm welcome/ everyone gave us."

From Begining to the end Alberto planned the most perfect trip for us. We still talk about it daily! Alberto greeted us in Florence.

"Vineyards, /wine tasting/, Pompeii, the /Colosseum/, and much more…"

We could not have had a more wonderful Italy experience than the one planned for us by Linda and Alberto! They really listened to what we wanted and planned a number of unique experiences for the four of us. The tours were outstanding, the drivers were prompt and courteous, our dinners were booked in advance at wonderful restaurants in both Rome and Florence. As an artist, one of the highlights for me was a paper marbling class at a fourth generation store where they restore books, marble the covers, make paper, et. We visited a shop which repairs stained glass for the Vatican, picked up some beautifully designed glass pieces, picked up marble mosaic squares for projects, and much more. We stayed at terrific hotels in great locations. Linda communicated with us daily via WhatsApp and before we left Florence she met us near the Duomo and treated us to coffee /drinks. She was flexible with our schedule, adjusting when needed. The agency app provided itineraries, train tickets, instructions, names of guides, where to meet, eliminating any uncertainties. Vineyards, wine tasting, Pompeii, Villa Medici, the coliseum, the Forum, the Vatican and much more…it was a fabulous experience. Thank you Linda!
