The “Costiera Amalfitana” is characterized by a handful of winding roads connecting gorgeous villages wedged between the sea and the steep cliffs of the Lattari mountains on carefully constructed terraces in Amalfi Coast.

Among the glittering string of coastal gems, legendary Positano and Amalfi sparkle the brightest, while mountaintop Ravello has the glossy fame of its grandiose villas and Wagnerian connection.

  • Hi Luca,
    I want to start off by saying thank you for making the accommodations, they’ve been lovely. Florence was more than we could imagine, the hotel and staff were exceptional. As was Venice, so far I love Venice more than any city so far.  Thank you very much for helping to change things around for us. The room they moved us to in Rome is sooooo much better. The window lets in fresh air and there’s more space. Roberto, the manager, says hello. He said he is friends with your father and was pleased to help us out. Our day is off to a much better start and I feel so much better. Grazie Mille.

  • I just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for coordinating our trip. We had a wonderful time in Sicily – all went well. My aunt did well and really enjoyed herself. Paulo was an absolute gem. Please let Luca know that he was great and so accommodating. He was also very patient. I can’t praise him enough. He is a consummate professional and Luca is very lucky to have him.
    I loved everything about the trip – Sicily was wonderful. You put together a wonderful time for both me and my aunt. I will definitely sing your praises to anyone that needs to take a trip. Hopefully I will be able to travel overseas again where I would definitely be in touch.
    Have a great day.
