Dear Kristin, Jessica, Kirill and In Italy,
We want you to know that we had a fabulous vacation and it is because of your wonderful suggestions! My 4 cousins, my husband and myself who traveled there together loved your suggestions for where to stay in Rome, the Rome Terrace Apt. It was perfect! Clean and centrally located for sightseeing! Palazzo Bandino in Chianciano Terme was also perfect!!!! The staff was friendly, apt. was perfect and also a great location! Thank you for making our trip such a success. We plan on going back and we will be contacting you again for suggestions!!!!

I want to write my comments to this fabulous trip we had. First of all, thank you for making this trip possible and for arranging everything there was thinkable and unthinkable. Without you nothing would have been as easy flowing.
Transfer from the airport at Rome to the apartments--- definitely perfect timing and necessary with kids and luggage. Our easy trip has begun!!
Rome Terrace Apartment --- nice apt, wonderful localization near Piazza del Popolo and walking distance to everywhere. Neat apt with terrace and 3 big bedrooms. Two of the A/C did not work at all and the shower drainages were clogged; otherwise, clean, well-equipped, and secure to get in and out. Loved Rome!!! A little expensive, but we suppose that it has to do with the central localization.
Private half-day tour to old Rome --- Manuel was our guide. Very knowledgeable and passionate with his city, willing to help with ideas of surroundings and easy-going.
Private half-day tour to the Vatican --- Andrea was our guide. Even though his knowledge was exceptional and interesting, he failed to incorporate the whole group in the tour (we were 6 counting adults and children). It was really a private tour to my husband!! (Not bad at all since the trip was to celebrate his birthday, but we were kind of lost!!). He gave us a restaurant suggestion that came to be the best in Rome, which was Sicilia in Bocca.
Europcar--- no problem at all with our car rental. Everything flowed easily. Thank you, Patrick.
Palazzo Bandino --- simply stated, this is PARADISE on Earth!!! From the moment we got there, we were pampered and taken care of. I can definitely get used to this treatment!! They make everything possible to meet your needs. For example, I am a vegetarian and the first day I told them, so that they did not count me on the meat dishes, not expecting anything at all ( and I told them that it was no problem to skip that plate for me). Since that moment, every day they had something different for me!! Food is incredible, local wines are the best, attention is unthinkably the best...!!!
Half-day private tour to Uffizi and Accademia --- Elisabetta is the best tour guide we had!!! Her knowledge and education is incredible, as is her appeal with the kids. They enjoyed these museums so much!!! And it was all because of her!!! She was in contact with everyone in the group, meeting every need and grabbing the attention of every person in the group. Her recommendations for restaurants and place for gelato were perfect
Castello B&B --- Walking distance to Piazza S. Marco (8 mins walking easily), impeccable, clean, beautifully decorated, wonderful attention. Nassir and Andrea make everything possible to make you feel pampered, Rooms are neatly clean and decorated, with wonderfully cold a/c, in the middle of a super warm summer. Recommendations of restaurants were very good. Definitely would recommend to others.
Definitely, there are so many things left unseen, that we will be back as soon as possible (threw a coin in the Trevi Fountain hoping it works...). No doubt that we will be using your service again. You made everything possible and easy. Now I will recommend you to others!! No easier way to fly to Italy, when you know nothing about it. I hope that our comments help you in suggesting things to other clients.
