Our trip was amazing! We went to Rome, Cinque Terre, and Florence. The care, thought and planning that went into our hotel stays, activities, and private transportation was phenomenal. Ina's recommendations for site-seeing and food were spot on, our favorite moment was visiting Brac bookstore/restaurant in Florence because she wrote about it- it was a favorite experience of mine (vegetarian food in Florence!).

Our trip was amazing! We went to Rome, Cinque Terre, and Florence. The care, thought and planning that went into our hotel stays, activities, and private transportation was phenomenal. Ina's recommendations for site-seeing and food were spot on, our favorite moment was visiting Brac bookstore/restaurant in Florence because she wrote about it- it was a favorite experience of mine (vegetarian food in Florence!).

If you are going to Italy- Kimkim is your way to go. They made the process so simple and easy to follow, and when I did have questions (for example, confusion on when we were doing a Vatican museum tour) they were responsive on Whatsapp every time.

Hotel Reviews

Hotel Ca' d'Andrean

Manarola (SP)

The views were fantastic, the rain shower was lovely. We spent time on the patio each evening just watching the sunset and listening to the bells toll at the nearby church. The pillows were not very substantial, but that was the only qualm at our favorite hotel of our trip.

Tips for future travelers

You must be OK walking stairs to stay here- no elevator.

Authenticity & Character
The hotel's owner shared that this was his grandfather's house- hence "Ca". He obviously cares deeply about this place.

Casa Cappuccini

Rome

This hotel is valuable for its distance to the major sites. It was an easy walk for us to visit the Spanish steps, and from there to walk leisurely through downtown. The rooms are spartan but comfortable-and lively Rome is just outside the window!

Tips for future travelers

The restaurant just down the street vertically- Freschetta- is small, family-run, and delicious. Perfect for a first night authentic Italian meal.

Authenticity & Character
It was a bit impersonal - new people each day, breakfast across the street.
