Visit the fascinating UNESCO World Heritage Site of Pompeii and enjoy a quiet quintessential Italian afternoon in Sorrento, the gateway to the Amalfi Coast - day trip from Rome
My friend and I vacationed in Italy for a week and visited Venice, Florence, Rome, and Pompeii with the help of Hali at L&B Italian Tours.
Her planning and knowledge of the touristy and not so touristy attractions was exceptional. Hali recommended visiting the Grand Bazaar, which we found rather easily to navigate to with the rail system leaving directly from the airport.
Once we arrived in Italy, she suggested various restaurants and some main attractions. Additionally, she was great help on
finding the best deals for connecting trains between the cities, quality places to stay though Air BnB, and booked us tours that included “skip the line” passes so that we could avoid long lines at major attractions like the Vatican and the Coliseum.
We found her overall knowledge of the cities, transportation and room and board to really give us an incredible trip abroad without breaking the bank!
