Elena planned a fantastic tour of northern Italy - Florence, Tuscany, Cinque Terre, Bologna, Venice - for me and my husband. Based on a couple of phone calls and messages, she tailored the trip, including all the great guided tours and activities, perfectly for our interests. She thought of every detail to make the trip go smoothly. And while we were in Italy, Elena was always available by WhatsApp for any questions or concerns.

Hotel Review
Belvedere di San Leonino
Castellina in Chianti

The Belvedere is beautiful with amazing views of the Tuscan hillside. We had such a relaxing stay there after a week in Florence. Breakfast was delicious - with an ingenious cappuccino maker!

Activity Review
Food day including Lambrusco wine tasting, Balsamic Vinegar, pasta making class, Parma ham and Parmigiano Reggiano - from Bologna
Italy

This was probably the highlight in a trip of amazing experiences! We learned so much about how lambrusco, parma ham, parmigiana reggiano, and ricotta are made. We cannot overstate how delicious everything was. Just a note - instead of the pasta making class, we had lunch at the Opera winery, which was incredible, with the most beautiful views. Our guide Isadora and driver Fabia were very knowledgeable and great fun. Highly recommend!
