what a pleasure to hear from you! We came back from Italy only yesterday!
I am so happy to have found you and Renzo and Francesca! We had a wonderful week with them, they are 2 delightful people... such a beautiful team!
Everything was perfect, their B&B is perfect, fit to our needs and relaxing, and every day Renzo and Francesca showed us new places, and made us tasting new local dishes both at lunches and dinners.
We really felt with family, it has been a common feeling in our group, thank you!!

From the time Renzo and Francesca met us at the train station, we knew we would be enjoying a fun-filled, spectacular week. Their energy, love for people, and Italy showed immediately. They made us feel welcome and a part of their family. Sharing meals and conversion with their children, Marialaura and Guilia, was a delight.
Shortly after settling into our room at their beautiful B&B, Francesca arrived with homemade bread and pesto. The best pesto I have ever had. She makes her own. Along with the bread and pesto came a bottle of Prosecco! That evening we had a truly Italian experience (one of many we had during the week) at a local restaurant. No tourists!!!! Just family and friends. Now, that’s Italian!
Renzo and Francesca made every day special. We were never rushed, yet saw everything on the itinerary and more. The food, the wine, the daily cappuccino stops, the shopping, the beautiful scenery and our time together are etched in my memory forever! You will only experience Italy like an Italian when you travel with an insider like Renzo and Francesca.
Thank you, Renzo and Francesca, for a once in a lifetime experience.

We had an amazing time at the B&B. Renzo and Francesca are the most helpful and dedicated hosts I have met during all my travels. They gave us tips on how locals do things, drove us safely, pre bought all of our activity tickets for our cinque terre trip, offered us bottles of white wine, etc... we had an amazing time and felt really at home.

Dear Francesca and Renzo, thank you so much for having shown us some spectacular Italy we neither know it was existing... avoiding touristy places gave us so much more! Thank you also for having arranged your tour on our walking capabilities, I really didn't think we could visit so much

After that you dropped us off in Milan we went for a cruise and we visited some beautiful places in Greece... but I have to be honest, nothing compared to the week we spent together! As I told you when we left you exceeded all the expectations we had. Your ability to match our needs with sightseeing was amazing. We would love to come back one day, you can not get rid of us!

I really cannot begin to tell what the trip meant to me. It was the very best trip I've ever had. We truly had a wonderful time. In a small group you learn so much more history and through your expert planning and knowing the land as you do, it was very meaningful. What can I say about the wine and food. Trying to describe the meals to others is quite impossible !! It was truly a wonderful experience in every way, and we promise not to give away any secrets if we tell others.
All my love to all.
Vince and Darlene (AUS) - 2017
Both of us would like to say how much we enjoyed our time with you. We gained so much insights into your culture, delicious food and history during our tour. Thank you for allowing us to share time with your lovely family. We hope the business is thriving.
Love and best wishes
