We took our granddaughter on a trip to Italy that Marcello planned for us. He knew the ideal hotels for us and everyone and everything he recommended was spot on. The trip was skillfully planned to maximize our use of time without overwhelming us. The cooking class he arranged was a spectacular experience that we will never forget along with so many magnificent sights.

Marcello helped my fiancé book a lovely trip to Southern Italy & Sicily last November.

Last night, he graciously recommended one of the finest dining experiences I've ever experienced (which is a pretty bold statement) in Venice.

Signor Marcello - your next venture will be an amazing experience for those smart enough to engage your services.

Miss Paula and I will always treasure the memories created by your amazing recommendations and experience.



We just wanted to say thank you for planning the perfect trip to Italy for us - we had the best time! We never would have been able to find the hotels and restaurants that you found for us. We saw so many beautiful places and ate such fabulous food that we can't wait to see more of Italy. Hopefully, you will help us plan our next trip. We have so many great pictures from the trip, but here are some of the best ones of the sights, art, churches, hotels and food that we loved the most. Thanks again for planning the most amazing trip ever!

"Marcello created a one of kind Italy tour for me and my husband. In Rome., Marcello set us up with a private driver. Besides seeing the many specular sites, like, The Vatican, The Colosseum, St. Peters Basilica, The Sistine Chapel, the driver took us around and gave us a personal tour of this historic city.  


Our trip to Italy was extremely memorable and we cherished every minute of it. We can’t wait to go back and visit other areas of this beautiful country.”
