Maria and her staff did an outstanding job for my husband and me. My husband had been to Italy 30 years ago, but I had never been so we stayed in Venice, Cinque Terre, Florence and Rome. Due to weather in the US, we arrived over a day behind schedule. Thankfully Maria and her team were able to make a few adjustments so we didn’t feel like we missed too much. We saw all the highlights and had some unique experiences. As an example, one day while staying in Florence we had a driver that took us to Sienna for a half day tour with a guide, then we went to a boutique winery for a private lunch and wine tasting. Finally, before returning to Florence we visited an olive estate where we had an olive oil tasting and the owner showed us their private chapel. That night my husband said he could now answer someone who asked him to describe his idea of a perfect day! I would highly recommend Maria if you are interested in one of a kind experiences in Italy.
