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
Geraldine And Craig Parker
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!

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!!!
