Fabulous Trip to Italy!


We want to thank you for this fabulous trip to Italy. Both hotels, Buca di Bacco in Positano and and Hotel Barocco in Rome were wonderful.

In Positano at the Buca di Bacco we had a balcony that overlooked the Gulf of Salerno. Late afternoon, after we had finished our outing for the day, we would sit, me with a glass of wine & Fred with a beer & watch the comings & goings of the various boats. The service was excellent & having breakfast on the outside dining area was so beautiful. I just loved the charm of Positano and the weather was perfect.

And then……we went to Rome, Italy. Hotel Barocco was absolutely gorgeous. They spared no expense with the building materials, furnishings, linens, window treatments…..everything. The breakfast was superb, the service more than excellent. We had a lovely private balcony. After a long day of walking/touring, etc. we could retreat to peace & quiet of that space.

Both of us are in awe of Rome. The history there is unbelievable & for me, being Catholic, the highlight was The Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel and of course, St. Peter’s Basilica. We saw & did so much. All of your accommodations for tours/drivers were just wonderful. Even with that one glitch for The Vatican tour; we didn’t let that stop us from enjoying all the beauty of that day. Thank you for obtaining a refund for us…..we truly appreciate it.

The private walking tour with our guide was fabulous. What an intelligent man. We walked for 6 hours straight that day (except for a short ride to the next location) & enjoyed every minute of it. He showed us extra places that we would never have gone into & pointed out so many interesting facts about the buildings & churches. Truly a remarkable guide.

Fred & I truly appreciate all of your work putting together a perfect trip for us. We’ll be talking & reminiscing about this “once in a lifetime trip” for many years.
