Often your best vacation is experiencing the destination, instead of stressing on how to get somewhere. May we recommend private drivers for either your transfers from point to point, or private drivers for tours.
We offer private transfers from the airport/hotel, or pier throughout Italy. Rome Airport to the city center is around 65 euro. Yes, you can take a taxi, but after hours of travel, there is nothing better than having someone waiting outside of customs with your name on a sign.
Another reason for hiring drivers for your tours, is due to limited parking in many Italian cities/towns. Even when you can find parking it can be quirky, and not often, are there consistent means to pay for parking. In the U.S. we take for granted that there are machines that allow you to use your credit card, or an attendant to take your payment. Not true when traveling throughout Italy.
Sampling of tours
Florence a walking city; you cannot have a car in the historic center without a permit. They are only issued daily by the police station. May we suggest a guided walking tour, based on your interest. You will want a full 3 days to scratch the surface of Florence, or opt for a driver for one of those days, to visit the Tuscan Countryside.
Tuscany Half Day Tours from Florence: Siena, Pisa, Lucca, Sangimignano and the Chianti wine region. Full day excursions are available to Cinque Terre, Pisa/Lucca and Montepulciano/Montalcino; the Brunello Wine Region
Rome may we suggest a 3-hour city tour with a driver, who will take you to all of the sites to give you a broad perspective. A walking guided tour of the Sistine Chapel and the Vatican, a must!
Amalfi Coast: Sorrento, Naples, Positano, Praiano, Amalfi, Ravello, Pompeii. The Amalfi Coast is a 30 mile stretch of arguably the most scenic coastline in the world. We highly recommend drivers and guides due to traffic & limited parking. We also suggest water taxis that travel up and down the coast.
Venice a city with no cars made up of 113 islands. We suggest a guided walking tour of Venice and water taxis to take you to the outer islands of Murano and Burano.
