The following is a testimonial from one of our satisfied customers.

We took 1,300 pictures…I know sounds crazy, but everything was beautiful.
Giulia, I cannot thank you enough for all the bookings you made for us.  The hotels were just lovely. Our favorites though were “La Tonnarella” and “Punta Nord” in Sicily. It was a treat to have beach access at La Tonnarella and the views were spectacular. Our room at the Punta Nord seemed to have the best view in Sicily!!  We were on the top floor and had an extremely large balcony view of the sea.

Our hotel in Rome was also a pleasant stay. The room was actually very spacious for a Rome hotel and the staff there served us like family.  Giuseppe at front desk hooked us up with a quaint little restaurant right across the street and the meals there were very enjoyable.

My favorite city though was Florence.  It was a dream…like walking in a museum.  The location of the hotel was perfect and the kids enjoyed having their own room. I could’ve stayed a few more days just in that city.

As far as the Tours, our time with Gianluca, who took us on the wine tour in Tuscany and also to San Gimignano and to the top of San Marco square, was really a treat. We felt so special that day, especially when they sat us down and we tried their wine. It is great to see the city with people who actually live there.

The historical tour with Helen in Rome was very pleasant.  Even though it was very hot and sunny that day, we didn’t want our time with her to end.  She is very knowledgeable and I would recommend her to my friends and family.

Your colleague Francesca, in Sicily, was special.  It was very nice to meet her and spend the day.
All in all, we made some wonderful memories and I couldn’t have asked for a more special time in Italy (being my first).

Thank you again Giulia for your time, patience and thoughtfulness in helping us with our trip.
I will and have already advised my friends to consider any bookings with you.

Ciao, tanti saluti

In 2006, I had my first “encounter” with Giulia (Italian Travel Tours), when she planned a trip for a group of ten consisting of family and close friends.  It was to become a dream trip that we are still talking about today!  Giulia let it be known that she would be available to us 24/7 and she left no detail to chance.She even kept a constant eye on the fickle Euro to help us stay within our budgets. From Rome to a wonderful week in a villa in Tuscany and its surrounding towns and then South, to Sorrento, to the Amalfi Coast and to Capri, she left no stone unturned, providing us with wonderful lodging and friendly and knowledgeable guides everywhere!  All we had to do was to sit back and enjoy it all and that we did! 
So thank you, Giulia!
In 2008, my daughter decided she wanted a Destination Wedding, the destination being Cancun, Mexico – Giulia to the rescue!  One word from us and everything was taken care of – we just had to decide on some of the details of the wedding day.  Both families spent a wonderful week together bonding, the wedding on the beach was just beautiful and a great time was had by all and of course there were a few perks, courtesy of Giulia!  Thanks again, Giulia, we will always remember this!
Last year (2011) 4 of the original “Italian 10″ and 3 “newbies” decided to visit Italy again, going north this time.  Once again, Giulia personalized our itinerary, no easy feat this time, because we hit some snags while planning, causing Giulia to make changes many times over, but she never lost her charm while doing so.  Because of her perseverance and her desire to see that our plans came to fruition, this trip was as memorable as the first and in many ways, more so.  Giulia’s love of Italy is evident and it rubs off, believe me. You will love Italy and you will love Giulia, too!

I first traveled to Italy in September of 2006 with a group of family and friends.  Italian Travel Tours (Giulia Vallucci) customized our trip for us right down to the smallest detail.  Deciding our destinations and accommodations under Giulia’s guidance was almost as much fun as the travel itself.  Our tour was designed around all the wonderful sites we wanted to explore.  Our travel was a fabulous experience.  Each day was more delightful than the day before.  Giulia traveled with us for a portion of the travel and made sure we had experienced guides wherever they were needed, especially when she was not with us.  By the end of the tour we were all a little sad that it had to end.   I knew I would return and also knew that Italian Travel Tours would plan my return.  Giulia Vallucci planned my second trip with family and friends in August of 2012, this time visiting many new places.  Everyone had a wonderful time exploring areas we would have never dreamed of had it not been for Giulia’s meticulous planning and insight into what we would all enjoy.  The tour she planned was exciting and again filled with many surprises and no disappointments.  I know I speak for my whole group when I say our only disappointment was that it ended too soon.  We will, of course, dream of our next visit with Italian Travel Tours helping us decide what to discover next.
I am in Love with Italy, its culture and its people and I thank Giulia Vallucci and Italian Travel Tours for that!

We have had the distinct pleasure of planning two magical trips to Italy with Giulia Vallucci. Giulia sat down with us and discussed our thoughts and needs in details. She then put together two separate trips to Italy for us.   Her attention to every detail was beyond belief.   She picked out hotels that were centrally located and absolutely wonderful. She set up tour guides for us in each of our stops that were well educated and knowledgeable.   She even set up transportation, train schedules that made our entire trip seamless. Both of our trips were seamless, and Giulia left no detail unattended. I don’t think we would have had such a wonderful time without her guidance and expertise. She has now become a lifetime treasured friend to us. I so highly recommend her if you are planning a trip to Italy. NO OTHER WAY TO GO TO ITALY than through GUILIA’S GUIDANCE.
