Gretchen and Mary’s Vacation in Italy

Gretchen and Mary’s Vacation in Italy

Gretchen decided she was going to surprise her mother with the most amazing 60th birthday present – a trip to Italy! Their 9-night Italy package included the cities of Rome, Florence and Venice with some of Italy’s best 4-star hotels, private transfers and private tours. It was a pleasure helping her plan such a special trip. Thanks for the email Gretchen!

Hi Marina,

I just wanted to send you a  quick email and thank you for all your help with organizing our amazing trip to  Italy!  It’s a very beautiful country, and this trip has made me wish on  more than one occasion that I lived here!!  I’ll definitely come back, and  also use Travelive again as well!

Thank you again,

    Gretchen – I’m so glad you guys went to Venice and now you understand why it’s my farovite city! Jason and I did the same thing you guys did. We took a water taxi to San Marco and spent the day wandering back to the Rialto bridge. I think part of what makes Venice so magical is letter yourselft get lost. We found small little bakeries and got treats, stumbled across a bridal party on their way to the church and just enjoyed the ebb and flow of traffic. As we got closer to Rialto the tourist traffic picked up and it wasn’t nearly as magical.October 22, 2010 2:03 pm
