Sylvia greatly enhanced my holiday in Italy with her knowledge of Venice and Umbria and myriad of connections there. I benefitted from her connections in Venice, as she booked both my apartment and tour guide. My Venice apartment was in the midst of a charming neighborhood, near the apartment owner’s delicious restaurant and not far from San Marco Square. My knowledge of Venetian culture, history and art were much increased after a 2 ½ hour walking tour with Linda (a native Venetian with a strong arts background). It is clear that Sylvia knows Venice very well, and that her connections are well-vetted. It is not surprising that Sylvia has quality connections, as she was professional and easy to work with while I planned my holiday. She helped make my time in Italy one that I will always remember. If knowledge of Venice and Umbria, a myriad of connections, and gentle professionalism are what you are looking for in a booking agent, I would highly recommend Sylvia.
