”Ciao Anna and Marcello,
I’m very late is sending a message to thank you for arranging our trip this year. I have to say that we loved all the accommodations, all the recommendations that you provided in the detailed Trip Notes, and all the advice that you included in your communications. If we had to chose a favorite place, it would probably be the Hotel in Tremezzo. The view from the patio alone made it hard to leave the hotel to do any sightseeing… the location of the B&B in Venice, right on the Lagoon made it all worthwhile. It was the perfect place to stay in Venice. You could see everything in the harbor and easily get anywhere in the city, but you were just far enough away from all the crowds. Another plus was a gelato shop right underneath the B&B where we stopped every night on the way back from dinner. And once more, you were absolutely right about staying in Carona rather than in Lugano. We loved Carona and the food that we were served there was some of the best of our trip. Lastly, Rosso Segnale was another perfect B&B and our hosts were so accommodating and helpful that we wished we had more time there.
Thank you again for arranging another perfect visit to Italy.
”Venice, Como & Lugano Lakes – Sept 2016″
We finished our trip on Friday and arrived home late Friday night. All four of us enjoyed it immensely.
All in all, our trip was wonderful. We were reined in a bit by bad weather in Cinque Terre, but Levanto is a nice town to wander on a rainy day. We didn’t expect to be as impressed with the Leaning Tower and Duomo and Baptistry in Pisa, but they are AMAZING. My husband almost would not leave Greve, especially after we spent a delightful day in Montefioralle. We climbed the towers in Siena and Florence and saw as much as we could in the time we had available. We loved it all.
Ciao and thank you,
Now we are all falling back to our everyday routine but full of wonderful memories.
I want to thank you for planning this great trip for us we are very satisfied with everything and I am not afraid to state that everyone in my group is overjoyed.
The scenery was fantastic, the walks were different every day, the information package was faultless, the hotels where nice, the restaurants were good, the Italian people are wonderful and you of course were always by our back ready to assist.
(One of my friends said to my yesterday “ this trip exceeded my expectations by far even though my expectations were very high” and I think we feel all the same J). In other words thank you so very much for everything.
If you and your colleges are planning on visiting Iceland one day we will be more happy to assist you in your planning and recommend nice places to visit.
Best regards, Bogga and co J”
“We cannot applaud ICNOS ADVENTURES and Anna and Marcello enough for the perfectly choreographed “Jewels of Amalfi Coast” self guided tour that we enjoyed in mid May 2015. They could not control the perfect weather, but their attention to every detail did guarantee we would have a stress-free adventure. Having so many specific bus and train schedules to choose from, options on the hiking itineraries, great restaurant recommendations and wonderful, well located hotels all contributed to a vacation we will always remember with incredible memories. Although there are other tour companies to choose from for these types of trips, we selected them because they are locals and know their region better than outsiders. We indeed made the right choice! Anna helped us so much with preplanning suggestions for the 2nd half our Italy holidays as well – in the Umbria region. The maps, daily directions and other valuable literature were great resources as well. Bravo and grazie mille for such extraordinary service.
Dottie is a former travel agent with over 20 years of experience, so she can be hard to please.
This was a trip of a life time and mapped to perfection.
Dottie & Jack”
