Sarah & Zach L. - Spring Honeymoon Italy Grand Tour
Emily / Team,
Sarah and I are incredibly thankful to you all for helping to coordinate the honeymoon of a lifetime! Though there was a bit of a hiccup with our initial flight check-in (which was taken care of above and beyond!), the trip was quite honestly perfect.

Each one of our tours, guides, and experiences throughout the trip were incredibly memorable. From our adventures in Rome, the Papal Audience, to the Ancient Rome tour, and then in Florence the pizza and gelato class, walking tour, and all day trip to the Tuscany/Sienna region, and in Venice our tour of St. Marks Basilica, each day was something fun and different. We also appreciated the good mix of leisure time interwoven throughout the trip, and never felt like we were “overbooked” with activities. The freedom to explore or even revisit sites we saw in earlier tours was fun as well. And the thrill of finding a good restaurant to eat at- just a great time!

All of our provided transportation during the trip was appreciated as well- from our private car from the Rome airport to our hotel, the high speed trains which were fun to relax on (and especially enjoyed the first class seat upgrade) and our very early morning water taxi from our Venice hotel to the airport- bookended the trip with a no-worries trip (though the water taxi went quite fast across the water for 4:00am!)

Again, we cannot thank you enough. We do apologize for not writing sooner- life just picked up when returned and we haven’t had a moment until now to reply. But we greatly appreciate and your time and effort in helping to plan our perfect honeymoon! We’ll never forget our first trip abroad, and you helped make it possible!

Thanks!
Zach and Sarah
Ullas and Nivedita Krishnan  - Italy Honeymoon Romantic Grand Tour
Good Day Emily,

Hope you are doing well. Say hi to Ana as well. Please find below our review for the Italian honeymoon.
We found out about Trips2Italy with the help of internet. They had a user friendly website and it outlined their
Expertise in conducting Italian trips. I was immediately impressed. I sent an enquiry to their email address. I received prompt response from Emily Martolini.
Then for about couple of weeks we went back and forth with requirements and suggestions.
Finally I was satisfied with the itinerary. I had some difficulty with booking payment owing to foreign remittance.
Emily was very patient and helpful all the way through the payment process.

Two weeks prior to our departure , Ana contacted us through email with travel vouchers, coupons and train schedules.
Everything was well documented and systematic. All my doubts and concerns were addressed as necessary.

The trip itself was amazing in many ways. The clock work like planning by Emily and her team made the trip even more Memorable. There were no delays or lags. The pick ups were on time, the tour coupons were informative and self explanatory.

The chosen tour guides were well versed with the Italian culture and they shared many facts and inside stories about the various Historical sites. The highlight of our Rome leg was the Colosseum. It was spectacular. Vatican was breath taking as well.
At the Roman forum, crowd was excessive. But our guide was smart enough to sneak us through the rear entrance. It saved us a lot of time and energy.

The train journey from Rome to Venice was pleasant and comfortable. Venice was amazing. It was freezing cold when we reached there, but Emily had advised us in advance to carry winter wear. So we were saved. 😊

We were late for the Doge’s palace group tour. The ferry was delayed due to rain. I immediately contacted Trips2Italy and they promptly rescheduled the tour to the next day. Highly appreciate such a gesture.

St. Marks basilica and Doge’s palace were beautiful. The Bridge of Sighs was touchy. The Gondola ride was magical to say the least. Thankfully the weather held up pretty well on Days 2 and 3. The Island tour with Murano, Burano and Torcello was pretty good. The ferry was outstanding.

The train journey from Venice to Rome was comfortable and on time. The next day our pick up arrived on time and dropped us off at Rome airport.

In Rome we stayed at Hotel Columbia twice. Once for 2 nights and once for 1 night before departure. On the first occasion the room allotted was very small. That room will suffice for solo travellers. However for couples I suggest allocate bigger rooms. We had limited space for our luggage. We informed Trips2Italy about this.

They promptly arranged a bigger room for us the next time. Highly appreciate it. The food at the hotel was very good.They helped us with our sight seeing too. Very cordial and friendly staff. Rooms were well maintained and air conditioning was also Good.

In Venice we stated at Hotel Carlton on the Grand Canal. It was right across the train station. We got a nice room with a beautiful view of the canal. The breakfast was extensive and well prepared. We loved it.

Overall our honeymoon was memorable and we will cherish it for the rest of our lives. We are ever grateful to Trips2Italy for planning and executing such an awesome trip. Kindly find attached pics from our honeymoon. Grazie mille . Sei il migliore.

Thanks and best rgds

Emily,
First I want to say how incredible our trip was. Everything was perfect-the hotels, the service, the tour guides, the history, the food the WINE, the lovely hospitality. Jon and I had an unforgettable time!

I can't thank you enough for the amazing itinerary and helping us with the last minute flight changes. You all definitely made travelling oversees easy so we were able to relax. Please pass this along to the rest of the staff there.

I have already reccomended you all to a fellow co-worker.

PS-We sent your postcard in Florence but not sure if you got it yet.

Thanks again!
Savannah
Emily worked with us for the perfect trip. Our pre-vacation planning session was helpful to lessen any anxiety of what to expect when arriving in Venice.
The water taxi transport from the airport to our hotel was seamless. The accommodations in Venice were lovely and in a great location. The wine and cicchetti walking tour was a lot of fun. The water taxi from the hotel to the cruise ship went as planned exactly on time. When the cruise ship docked in Civitavecchia, Italy, Emily had arranged a private tour guide for our day in Rome. Stephano was accommodating and a lot of fun.
It was so nice to have him drive us right up to whatever we wanted to see which lessened needless walking for us.
This is the second time we have used Trips2Italy for our Italian vacation.
They are the best!
Good morning Emily
Our trip to Italy and cruise was amazing and we thank you for your assistance and great organization.
The way you had coordinated our pick ups and travel between hotels and sites was amazing, even to catching the water taxi in the middle of the night in Venice. All our drivers were excellent.
Both hotels worked our great nd excellent location. 700 year old Venice hotel was truly unique.
Tours were most interesting and good timing.
A special note was the wine tour to Salvaterra. We have done lots of wine tasting but this was exceptional. Our guide, can not remember her name paired the wines with outstanding foods for our lunch. We would highly recommend this event.
Thanks once again to you for your coordinating
Have a merry Christmas season

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 Gardners and Samantha
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!
