There is an Italian song saying, "Ma come non ti accorgi di quanto il mondo sia meraviglioso?" and it always comes to my mind when I travel. It means: "How come you don't realize how actually amazing this world is?" It is, indeed, but sometimes we forget it. That is why I love traveling, it makes me focus on beauty, it makes me conscious of how other people live, it makes me feel the diversity and that is exactly what makes this world so wonderful.

As a passionate admirer of the Italian language, culture, and lifestyle, after having experienced life in Italy myself, I feel inspired to create your personal Italian episode of life and make sure you have a life-changing experience that is not only going to be unforgettable but also will certainly make you fall in love with life again.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"Italy from the bottom to the top, for families, couples, or individuals who want to get the authentic experience, enjoy local food and wine, enrich their knowledge of Italian culture and taste the living all'italiana. "

How did you get involved in travel?

"As a kid, I spent a lot of time with my grandma who is a geography teacher, so I was surrounded by maps and books about all the countries of the world and that is how I began to wonder how it would be to see all that beauty in person. Later, when I started to study at the university, I heard of European Union Youth Exchanges and that's when I started to discover Europe in a very active and educational way, surrounded by young people from different countries, discussing certain problems of our society and finding the solutions by exchanging ideas. After that, I just wanted to spread my horizons more and more. "

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"South American adventures through Chile, Argentina, and Brazil at the beginning of 2020 with my best friend. Very spontaneous, following our intuition kind of trip. We enjoyed beautiful landscapes, totally forgot about a modern world, swam in rivers, camped in the middle of nowhere, volunteered in hostels, and shared experiences with local people. Besides having crossed our path with so many beautiful people there, now we both can dance cumbia and speak Spanish, how amazing is that!"

Unforgettable Honeymoon · Italy - Oct 3 - Oct 16, 2021

Traveler: Nicholas W. - Local specialist: Andrijana Kovacevic

Andrijana planned us an unforgettable honeymoon in Italy. Our week in Rome and week in Tuscany were absolutely fantastic. The private tour guides were some of the best I've ever experienced, and we learned a lot of insider knowledge directly from locals. Our accommodations were perfectly located in each location, and the drivers they hired for us were reliable and professional.

Andrijana planned us an unforgettable honeymoon in Italy. Our week in Rome and week in Tuscany were absolutely fantastic. The private tour guides were some of the best I've ever experienced, and we learned a lot of insider knowledge directly from locals. Our accommodations were perfectly located in each location, and the drivers they hired for us were reliable and professional. Every detail was worked out ahead of time, and they were there to support us when we had questions.

She even helped us get COVID tested for our return trip per US requirements, making what could have been a difficult trip stress free.

Everything was perfect and I would highly recommend both Andrijana and Kimkim.

Amazing · Italy - Sep 15 - Sep 26, 2021

Traveler: Denis K. - Local specialist: Andrijana Kovacevic

Putting together a trip to Europe is stressful, when you're planning on proposing there... it's even harder. Andrijana stepped in to help and we had the entire trip wrapped up in a few weeks. Any worries or concerns I had before we boarded the flight should have been left at home: this was an amazing experience and everything went off without a hitch.

Putting together a trip to Europe is stressful, when you're planning on proposing there... it's even harder. Andrijana stepped in to help and we had the entire trip wrapped up in a few weeks. Any worries or concerns I had before we boarded the flight should have been left at home: this was an amazing experience and everything went off without a hitch.
We had 4 planned stops on our trip: Cinque Terre, Chianti, Venice and Como. Andrijana suggested I abandon my initial idea of renting a car in favor for the trains and she was correct to do so. The trains were incredibly comfortable and easy to use, even with 4 suitcases. We had private transfers to and from our destinations, all arranged ahead of time, which made the transfer days some of the most relaxing I have ever experienced. A great opportunity to recharge between destinations.
Our stop in Cinque Terre was at La Sosta di Ottone III. Getting to this place was difficult, it's located outside of Levanto so you need to call a cab or get a car to get to the cities themselves, but they are only a short 10-15 minute drive away. The hotel itself is very rustic and quite, perfect for anyone looking to just escape from the world of technology and enjoy the beautiful scenery. Vernazza was by far my favorite place in the area. La Pirata Cafe, all the way in the back of the little town, had by far the best food I had in Italy, no Michelin star needed. That pesto changed my life.
Chianti was amazing as we are huge wine lovers. We finished at least a bottle or two per night while we were here during all our winery tours. Andrijana set up the most amazing visit to some micro-breweries where we got to meet and have dinner with the owner of Campocorto, Marco. His family welcomed us to dinner and we had a fantastic evening filled with great wine, food, and conversation.
Venice was my favorite stop. Andrijana set us up with an amazing hotel right on the canal, we had a great tour through the city and got to enjoy a lot of resturants. Walk around the city after midnight, wear some loud shoes, and you can really appreciate the beauty of the city and the amazing designs behind every street.
Our stop in Como was also amazingg, our hotel was right on the water with amazing balcony views of the lake. The food in the area was amazing but we particularly enjoyed a small walk in sandwich shop called Passion Como, in the city of Como itself. We went back twice that same day.
This was a fantastic itinerary and I am very happy with everything that we managed to put together. We made memories that we will cherish forever and I cannot wait to work with Andrijana again for our future trips.
Thank you!

Better Than Ever! BFFs head to the Amalfi Coast - Sept 2021 · Italy - Sep 19 - Sep 26, 2021

My lifelong BFF and I decided to spontaneously get away in late August, with trip dates for Sept 2021. I work long hours and don't have the time nor desire to look for deals and reviews, especially so close to our trip date. I found KimKim online and it was the very best thing we've ever done! Our specialist, Andrijana, was better than we could've ever wished for in a travel partner. We only had 7 nights and no idea of where to go, do or stay; Andrijana curated the most perfect vacation for us. Working together we planned some structured days and some to be 'free' days, where she offered us ideas of where to go, and best places to eat. It completely took the stress out of vacationing, including where to get our Covid test to come back home. The hotels were exactly what we had hoped for. Our drivers were always prompt and courteous.
A couple of highlights (so hard to pick as it was all magical) was the hotel in Positano with the most spectacular view. Small-sized boat trip from Sorrento to Capri. Our private guide, Giuseppe, who took us to Pompeii and then on to a private winery for lunch, followed by the climb up Mt.Vesuvio.
I would absolutely recommend this incredible agency - the personal connection and knowing that the agents are just a message away, is exemplary and next to none.

My husband and I just got back from an amazing trip to the Amalfi Coast of Italy, including Positano, Sorrento, and Naples. The process of planning and booking the trip was easy, organized , and our specialist Andrijana was very responsive and attentive to our preferences for the trip. She was able to put together an itinerary that had everything we love about vacation. The detailed plan for the trip was great and the transportation from the airport and between the cities we visited was seamless. The accommodations selected by Andrijana and the Kim Kim team were incredible, (especially the bed and breakfasts in Positano and Naples). Tiziana was a fantastic host at our accommodation in Positano, and Gisella was great in Naples. We ate at amazing restaurants with fantastic views of the beautiful Amalfi coastline. We did have a discrepancy about one of the tours that was planned during the stay, where there was an apparent miscommunication between the provider and the travel agency. The team, however, was very responsive and helpful despite the fact that our day did not go as planned. We appreciate the work on their end to try and resolve the issue, and they did compensate for the mistake quickly.
During our stay, we communicated with the team about recommendations for restaurants etc, and it was great to have a access to local guides to get great suggestions.
We had two of the most amazing guides for our tours in Sorrento and Naples. Celestina did a wonderful job showing us around Sorrento and explained the landmarks, culture, and traditions on a walking tour of Sorrento. She was friendly, warm and very knowledgeable. Celestina did an excellent job! We ended that tour with beautiful garden dinner at a the restaurant. We had a fantastic time with our amazing guide, Giuseppe who took us to the picturesque town of Ravello, took us on a walking tour of Naples, and guided us during our favorite day of the trip that included Pompeii, wine tasting and Mt Vesuvius. Giuseppe was top notch! He was one of the best guides we have had on a vacation. We learned so much from him during our tours! I can’t say enough about the hospitality and incredible service he provided on the last few days of our trip. Thank you to everyone that made this trip so memorable for us! We would definitely use KimKim again and recommended their services to our friends and family!!
