Nearby restaurants delicious. Rome - loved this apartment - amazing location, lovely helpful concierge and a really well-equipped place to stay. Perfect with the family.

"I could not have done it without you. It was so special."

It was an Italian journey that no one will forget. All the tour guides were awesome and accommodating.

The wine tours, picnic and Paola [the chef] were more than I hoped for. Even though we were late, Paola delivered...The meal was beyond amazing.

"Thank you for helping to make memories that will last a lifetime."

Thank you for everything! You guys were so knowledgeable of the area and it made the trip so much easier to have a friend on the ground.

"Thanks for the wonderful experience - we shall return!"

Tracy planned a wonderful trip for our group of 9 to Tuscany. Lots of questions were put forth prior to departure to ensure a fully customized experience. All the various interests of the group were covered. The villa that we ended up booking was fantastic, and no detail was too small. She facilitated the booking process making it a seamless experience. She even made sure the groundskeeper was aware of our needs. On our daytrips out from our base of Radda, Tracy made great suggestions for places to go and things to see. San Gimignano was a highlight as was Montalcino. Our favorite little >>

"Unforgettable! Thank you!"

We are frequent travelers and have used various vacation formulae in the past. This one was by far the most enjoyable! La Dolce Toscana's experience was like staying with a sister you haven't seen for a long time. She makes you eat the best food, drink the best wines, makes you see the most beautiful sites and enjoy the best entertainment in her area. Unforgettable! Thank you! >>
