Dennis and Maureen’s Best Trip Ever!
It is always nice when clients take the time to tell you about their trip. Dennis and Maureen spent their vacation in Italy exploring the Amalfi Coast and the romantic city of Venice. They stayed in some of Italy’s top 5-star hotels and enjoyed private tours. Thank you for sharing your experience with us!
We had a great trip! LeSirenuse was as good as you said, Peter M.; spectacular views, great breakfasts, and wonderful service. Everyone should visit Positano at some time. We also went to Capri and hiked up to Villa Jovis, a retreat of Caesar Augustus and Tiberius! An absolute thrill. It’s a very nice boat ride to Capri, as an added bonus. The pasta, fish, cheeses, vegetables and of course the wine was better than perfect.
Ravello was definitely worth the trip. One note however: after being driven from Naples to Positano and up the cliffs to Ravello and driving myself for a week in London and the Cotswolds on the wrong side of the street, we are lucky to be alive. (I think God has further plans for me.)
Venice was grand. Did the Doges’ Palace again; still took my breath away. The Danieli was the only small disappointment. Took us visits to 4 rooms to find one acceptable; and they wanted to hit us with an up charge. Our travel agent, Marina, did a good job nixing that. Our final resting place was very nice. Some of their staff were a little brusque; they seemed to be harried, maybe under a lot of pressure (maybe we were spoiled by LeSirenuse). Their breakfasts were fantastic, though, on their spectacular terrace overlooking the Grand Canal. Great location and an historic old building.
Marina, thank you so much. Everything went very smoothly. You did a great job!
