Kind feedback from happy travelers

“I can’t thank you enough for all of your help and for putting your time and thought into organizing this wonderful list of suggestions for my trip. It’s made me even more excited for my month in Italy.” – Allison

“I reached out to Livia because it was my first time in Italy and I planned to see six cities. She made sure I spent the right amount of time in each place and shared off-the-beaten path tips on what to see and do in each city. I loved the little wine bars I would have missed on my own. I can honestly say Livia made the trip easy and made it feel like I could relax and enjoy the vacation.” – David

“I really hope that we can do a trip to the south next – fingers crossed it will be next year. I will certainly be reaching out to you again for help planning that trip!” – Becky
