There are people who book us way ahead of time and ask us to suggest where to stay and others who stay in hotels they're not particularly happy with and ask us to suggest where to stay the next time they visit Rome.

Everyone seems to be very happy with the restaurants we stop and have lunch at during our tours and inevitably the ask us to suggest a restaurant for dinner.

Cruisers ask us to recommend someone who gives tours out of other Mediterranean ports and though for what concerns the port of Civitavecchia and tours of Rome, Tuscia, the Roman Castles, Ostia Antica etcetera we can do ourselves, for the rest of Italy we can arrange their land excursions with our local partners in the ports of  Livorno or La Spezia to visit Florence and Tuscany;  in the ports of Naples or Salerno to tour the Amalfi Coast and Pompeii. We don't have a direct partnerships outside of Italy though, so all we can do is provide the contact information to book their shore excursion with people who we know do a good job.

We listing on this page our favored hotels and restaurants in Italy and the info for guides, driving guides and drivers who operate outside of Italy. We'll also be adding any other information we think might be useful for tourists and even if you'll not become our client you may want to check out this page from time to time.
