Italy is a beautiful country full of vibrant, colorful, beautiful people, wonderful,


delicious food, and romantic vistas everywhere.


 


My own many explorations of the various areas of Italy have only scratched the


surface of all that Italy offers travelers. Talk to anyone thinking of going to Italy


and they get a certain far-off look in their eyes, imagining their own vision of Italy.


 


History buffs must definitely take in all of Rome and the Vatican. It is a huge city,


difficult to navigate, with unbelievable traffic. It also has glorious archecture, art,


gardens and fountains, fashion, delicious southern Italian cuisine and...gelato!


 


After frenetic Rome, for balance, you can go south to the Amalfi Coast area or


north to Tuscany for a little relaxing exploration on your own, or on a tour. Either


way, you can experience the "other" Italy of a slower pace, wonderful food and


more romantic vistas than you could ever dream of.


 


There are so many other areas to experience in Italy that you, too, can only scratch


the surface. You will keep going back for more!


Ciao!

Excellent cruise advisor.
Very competent, friendly, and easy to work with. She found us the kind of cruise we wanted when we couldn't find it anywhere online.

Amazing trip
She’s amazing! She’s gone above and beyond several times, from helping us get an additional excursion on our cruise to quantifying how much we could recoup if we had to postpone it.

Total Relaxation
Jerrie has gone above and beyond to accommodate us on our latest trip which involved 6 of us. Three of us came from Tucson and three came from Ohio so that was tricky to plan and get us to our resort within 30 minutes of each other arriving !!!!

Traveled to  Los Cabos ~ Baja California Sur ~ Mexico

So much better than expected!!!
We have never used a Travel Agent before. Jerrie was our first experience and she proved it to be so worthwhile. She booked our first time at an all-inclusive resort in Mexico which was recommended. She did EVERYTHING to make our experience just wonderful with no worries at all. We were so impressed that we came home and booked another all-inclusive with her for our WHOLE FAMILY to go with us. I know it will be a trip we all will cherish.
