Our family had a trip of a lifetime, thanks in large part to your careful and considerate planning. We were thrilled when the tickets you secured for us allowed us to march right past the long lines at the Vatican and the coliseum. That fact alone elevated you to sainthood status!

Family celebrates anniversary with three generations


I had the wonderful opportunity to plan an Italian Adventure for a family of 14... Joan and Lou with their 3 daughters & son-in-laws and 6 grandchildren.  They started in Rome where I arranged private guided tours of the Vatican Gardens / Museums / St. Peter's one morning and the a private tour of Ancient Rome.  Next they trained to Naples where drivers picked them up and took them to Pompeii for a guided tour and then Mount Vesuvius and to their destination in Positano along the Amalfi Coast for 3 days of relaxing and enjoying the Mediterranean Sea.  Next stop was Florence to see Michelangelo's David and the famous Uffizi Gallery. The last week was planned to rent a luxury villa in Tuscany where they could take day trips, visit wineries and cook together and relax by the lovely pool.  

Following are some images that capture this amazing family adventure.
