Thank you for a wonderful planned precruise tour of your beloved Rome. We were able to walk or take the Hop On Hop Off everywhere we wanted to go.
The tours you planned fully educated us about the ancient Roma sights. We also really enjoyed media presentations at the Forums of Augustus and Julius Caesar.
Of course, the Travestere Food Walking tour was a highlight before embarking on the Koningsdam.
Ciao,
Amelia and Jim Strickland
To the wonderful team at Trips2Italy and especially Emily Martolini:Throughout the scheduling process, Emily was not only wonderful to work with but did a fantastic job and we would recommend her and Trips2Italy staff in a heartbeat.
All transportation and trains that were scheduled were flawless.We had such a great time and created some lovely memories to carry forward.
Our favorite was the Tuscany Wine tour. Our tour guides that were set up were awesome individuals.
Should we decide to visit other parts of Italy in the future, we will not hesitate to go through Trips2Italy.
Thank you for making this such a memorable experience.

The team at Trips2Italy did a wonderful job planning our trip 5 years ago for our honeymoon and did another great job for our trip earlier this month.
Emily was so quick to answer our questions and planned the perfect trip. When we had some weather related travel issues, Ana got us moving as did the Milan office.
Our hotel was the best we've stayed in so far and all the plans/tours were such fun.
We truly couldn't have planned a better trip ourselves and we will continue encouraging others to use Trips2Italy.
Buongiorno Emily!
Our Italy adventure was amazing.
It was so nice to know what was on the agenda each day and have it laid out, but yet we had down time built in to relax and revisit anything we wanted to see again.
We also appreciate all the help from the Italy staff when the Capri boat tour was cancelled due to weather.
Trips2Italy helped make this a trip of a lifetime.
Ciao e Grazie to all!!!

Tommaso,
Thank you for helping us plan our wonderful Italian adventure.
We loved it all.
Everything we discussed worked with precision just as you laid out for us before we left. We especially loved Florence, our cooking class and our trip through The Chianti region and our wine tasting.
Your company helped make a fabulous trip possible.
We appreciate it all. Next time... southern Italy !!!
Thanks again.
Tommaso,
So sorry for the delay in reaching out to you, but being away for 10 days has put me way behind.
First of all our family trip to Italy could not of turned out any more spectacular than it did, from the drivers such as Tony and Cloudio?? to the private tour guides Simona, Irene and Damiano we couldn’t have been set up any better.
Your itinerary worked perfectly and we got a small taste of Italy (especially Lucio’s cooking) that will last us a lifetime or until Jennie and I decide to go back.
Your attention to detail was magnificent and afforded us such a great opportunity to see the Amalfi coast and Rome in the short time that we had.

Again a big Thank You from the entire Marzella family, we added one in Capri on August the 7th when my son proposed to his girlfriend, what a perfect spot.
Ciao
Rich
Hi Emily
Our trip was fantastic! I know our experience was so positive, fluid, and fun because of Trips2Italy!

Every move we made was well thought out and planned out perfectly! Moving from city to city was easy and finding every planned event was even easier. The detailed itinerary was so helpful and much needed. If we had chosen to plan our trip ourselves, I know there would have been many things we would have missed.

Every planned outing just got better and better as the trip progressed! Tour guides were fantastic and incredibly helpful. The hotel choices were great!!

There were so many highlights that were unforgettable and magical that it is hard to pick just one… but with that said the Tuscany Wine Tour definitely stands out as one of the best days in Italy. Going to the small, private owned wineries was an experience we will never forget!

The only thing we would have changed would be the choice of staying in Milan. If and when we go back, I would definitely stay in Lake Como instead of Milan.

Having all the train tickets purchased ahead of time and all tickets purchased for the events that sell out was perfect! There were times we were in line to pick up our tickets and people in line were getting told that tickets were sold out for 2 days or sometimes even longer than 2 days. So we were grateful to have reserved tickets.

We did every planned activity except Uffizi Gallery. We chose to skip this one event because we wanted to rest before moving on to the next city.

Thank you for one of the most memorable trips of our lives!

Emily,

Sorry for the delay in replying. We have been busy getting settled back into our trip. Congrats and I hope you had a good Honeymoon!!!

We had a great time in Italy. It was definitely a trip of a lifetime and all of our friends and family were very jealous. We couldn’t have asked for better weather while we were in Italy (perhaps maybe not so hot). The whole trip went very smooth and we didn’t have any issues finding where we needed to be, etc.

After landing in Italy we navigated to our water taxi and soon after got our first glimpse of Venice. We soon checked into our hotel and quickly started our exploration of the city. While in Venice we enjoyed eating a many good places! We had squid ink pasta and good wine at Vino Vino, had a great lunch at Vino Vero in Cannaregio and probably our best dinner in Venice was at a little place that I can’t remember the name of in the middle of the city ;-( .
I will find the name of it and let you know! We enjoyed just walking around the city and taking in the beauty. We attended Sunday morning mass at Saint Marks Basilica which was a very neat experience! We enjoyed learning about the history of Venice and seeing the grand craftsmanship during the Doge’s Palace tour as well.

After arriving to Florence by train one of our first stops was Trattoria Mario’s to split a Florentine Steak! We were sat with a very nice German couple who made for good conversation to go along with a tasty steak. That afternoon we enjoyed a walking tour of the city and capped it with a sunset from the Piazzale Michelangelo. While in Florence we did a Tuscany day tour. Our favorite stop on the tour was San Gimignano, where we had time to tour the city on our own and purchase a bottle of wine to enjoy as we sat on the city wall overlooking the Tuscan hillside. The next day we did the Cinque Terre day tour; I think this was our favorite stop of our whole trip. We would love to come back and spend more time in the park in the future. I hope it is able to keep its charm and not change too much with the influx of tourist!
Our final day in Florence we were able to tour the Duomo and see all the priceless art in the Uffizi Gallery.

By the time we go to Rome we felt like we had already seen so much! Nevertheless there was plenty more to see in Rome. The Vatican tour was such a neat experience and one we will always talk about and cherish. The amount of history in Rome is hard to fathom. We very much enjoyed our ancient Rome walking tour, esp. the Pantheon and the Colosseum. I can’t say enough about our guide for the walking tour, she was spectacular! I can’t remember her name but she was South African and had been living in Italy for many years. Her knowledge was amazing. On our final day in Italy we ventured over to Trastevere and we are very glad that we did!
It was great walking around the ancient streets and eating gelato and fried artichokes!

We will miss the atmosphere, café, food, people and the scenery of Italy until we can make it back again!
I included just a few pictures of our many pictures from the trip.

I would really like to thank you and everyone at Trips2Italy for making the trip such an easy and enjoyable experience!
I would definitely recommend you to anyone looking to go to Italy!

Ciao e Grazie!!!

Hi Tommaso,

Wow Friday already! This week has just raced by.

Our mutual clients the McN. and M. families just returned from Italy and I wanted to pass along their comments to you and appreciate the great services to make their trip so special.

" We had a fabulous vacation and can't thank you enough for all your help!
The most memorable experiences were the tours with Trips 2 Italy.
You said Tomasso's company was consistently outstanding and you were certainly right! Ricardo in Pisa, Francesca in Florence, Daniella in Pompeii, and Tony and Marco in the Amalfi coast were all fantastic!! Tony made reservations for us for lunch in a beautiful restaurant directly on the Med in Amalfi. It was heaven!!.... "

Grazie,
Jan D. - CWT Vacations
Buongiorno Emily!

We had a great time in Italy and overall were very happy with all the tours, etc. As far as logistics, all the drivers were on time and we got from place to place as expected.

As far as the guides, all were excellent, with no exceptions - knowledgeable as well as personable. Marco was the driver/guide for Amalfi coast, The Boat crew for the Capri boat trip, Simona in Pompeii, and tour group in Rome. We had the same guide, Serena, for both the Colosseum/Roman Forum and Catacombs tour, and she was excellent. The Vatican tour was good as well - could've used another hour on the tour, but then again time is limited and there's too much there anyway. You have good connections with these tour providers.

As far as hotels, the one in Sorrento was lovely - the place is clean (and had nice towels and plenty of soap and shampoo), the people are nice and the breakfast is excellent. It was also in a good location.

The hotel in Rome, however, was a bit lacking. The location was ok, the rooms were larger than in Sorrento, and the staff was friendly enough. However, they really skimp on services. Our individual complaints seem minor but taken together they show a hotel management that doesn't care about guests, only about saving money. The rooms aren't too clean - ants come into the rooms through the small terrace outside (so no proper bug spraying); the bathrooms were not thoroughly cleaned each day; the towels were thin; the shower curtains were terrycloth (I've never seen that in any other hotel) so they were always damp and musty-smelling; the plastic shower curtain liner in my daughters' bathtub wasn't long enough so the first time they showered water leaked out of the bathroom and into the foyer (then we had to put the terrycloth shower curtain into the tub to prevent the water from getting out); and we had to ask for additional soap bars. They had liquid bath gel/shampoo combination, which isn't good for either a shower or a shampoo. The breakfast room was noticeably understaffed, given the number of guests staying at the hotel.
Overall, it didn't detract from our enjoyment of Rome, but for your future bookings you may want to check further on this particular hotel. It needs to be managed by people who aren't looking to cut corners.

We enjoyed everything on the trip so it's hard to pick a favorite thing, but the highlights for my daughters were the Blue Grotto/boat ride and the Colosseum/Roman Forum tour. The food was excellent and they had gelato every day. We also tried a few of the restaurants suggested in your tour materials.

Thanks again for arranging this tour. We were pleased with your service and would use your company again in the future.

Best, Robin
My husband & I recently returned from the Tuscany/Cinque Terre escorted tour. We had an incredibly wonderful trip!
The itinerary was well planned and included the best that Tuscany & Cinque Terre have to offer. We really enjoyed the classy wine-tasting experiences & the boat ride to Cinque Terre.

In addition to the escorted tour, Trips2Italy assisted us with customization of our own itinerary. We could not be more pleased with Emily at Trips2Italy. Her communication was excellent, including prompt responses to emails and well-researched answers to questions. She organized a terrific trip for us!

During an overseas trip, we have huge peace of mind in knowing that there will be assistance available in case of a problem situation. Trips2Italy gets top marks for this. Due to a minor glitch, we had occasion to call the Trips2Italy 24 hour Emergency Assistance number. Tommaso immediately answered the phone, took care of the issue and followed up with us to assure that all was proceeding smoothly. Emily and Tommaso, thank you for our amazing trip to Italy!!
Tommaso!

First of all, THANK YOU for the most incredible trip we have ever taken! I cant say enough great things about the locations you picked out, the hotel rooms, and even the fine details of what kinds of views our rooms had. We also really appreciated the small touches like the Champagne and treats at each of our hotel spots. No small detail was gone un-noticed. It truly made the world of a difference in our experience!

We absolutely loved Italy!!

Lake Como is hands-down our favorite. We hope to return there again someday. Possibly for an Anniversary trip? :) We hope to spend more time in Como, but also explore some of the other sides of the lake when we return.

We loved the Itinerary. For never going to Italy before, it's hard to know what we would like/dislike, but I think Andrew and I are on mutual agreement that we could have done without Milan. While we appreciate the history, I think we could have stuck to just Florence and Rome for the "city" vibe of our trip. We absolutely loved Lake Como (Like I said) and all of our experiences in Tuscany. I wish we would have done more food tours, similar to the ones we did in Rome, but again, thats not something we could have known without going through the experience. It was cool to eat like a local, and go off the beaten path of tourist spots. We could have also skipped the Vatican. Although it's a one-in-a-lifetime thing to see, we aren't particularly religious people, so the significance of it was sort of lost on us. It was great to see the sistine chapel while we were there though. That, I would recommend.

We stuck to your planned itinerary for the entire trip, which was exceptional. We do not feel like we "missed out" on anything in Italy. With that being said, the schedule was so jam packed that we really didn't have a lot of leisure time to wander the streets, with the exception of 1 day in Como, 1 day in Siena, and our last day in Sorrento. While we feel like we got the most "bang for the buck" with our itinerary, I think we both under-estimated how jam-packed our schedules would be and I think we both agreed that we would have toned down the tours a bit if we were to do it all over again. Again, with that being said, we learned a lot in each place we went and having a guided tour did help us make the most of the time we had in each city, because it showed us what to spend our time on and what to skip. So, I suppose its a catch-22. We certainly feel like we had an incredible experience and each day we learned something more and more valuable to take back and share with our friends and family.

We have a few more friends getting married soon and considering planning their honeymoon. I have already recommended you to one of our couple friends. I cant imagine NOT going through a planner like you for such a trip, and we wished you did trips like this for other countries too!

Thank you again for all of the time, effort, details and special touches you put to making our Honeymoon simply incredible. Your Italy is certainly beautiful, and we feel that you helped us experience it in the best way possible.

Thank you again!!
