Amazing vacation thanks to Mario

Reviewed By Bob F - Long Valley NJ | Traveled to Sicily ~ Italy ~ Europe
My trip could not have been better had I written the script for it myself. Mario Fortini, from Bellarome Italian Vacations, was a pleasure to work with and was extremely attentive to all of our concerns. The hotels he selected for us were all beautiful and conveniently located to area attractions. The drivers were friendly and prompt and the guides for our excursions could not have been nicer and more professional. During the trip I was required to contact his emergency number once due to a mess up in the scheduling of a tour that was out of his control. He answered my call immediately and quickly resolved the problem to our utmost satisfaction. Mario also availed himself via "WhatsApp" should we have a question for him during our trip. This was a dream vacation and I credit Mario for making it go as well as it did.

Unbelievable Trip

Reviewed By Jperry - Nashville, TN | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
Our experience with Mario was exceptional from beginning to end! He was our contact with Bellarome and he went out of his way to communicate with me and answer all my questions and concerns. I spoke with him by phone on at least three occasions and he was easy to reach and prompt with his response. . I can't tell you what that meant to my husband and myself. When we realized our flight was connecting to Rome by way of London. Mario arranged pickup to and from the airport and booked our room. I requested more of a "boutique" type hotel for our trip and his choices were perfect. I loved all of our hotels! We had drivers arranged by Mario for the entirety of the trip, including the overnight trip to the area of my husband's ancestors. All vehicles were Mercedes and we had wonderful drivers! Our tours that were scheduled by Bellarome were interesting, informative and exactly what I would have chosen.

Awesome Trip to Greece and Rome

Reviewed By Allen Davis - NC, USA | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
Mario customized our trip to Greece and Italy, by listening to the places we wanted to see, and the things that we wanted to do. A custom itinerary was drawn up based on our conversations. The itinerary we were given was set up day by day, with all necessary directions, tickets, times, and everything else we needed to carry out our vacation. Mario has a very high standard in the guides that he uses, they were all on time and provided exactly the tours we were signed up for in an easy to understand manner. I would not hesitate to use any guide that Mario approves.

From the beginning, Mario was very attentive. He wanted our trip to Italy to be the best trip of our lives! He was available 24/7. He was able to make last minute changes to our itinerary to accommodate our needs. The hotels were the best, the food was phenomenal and the sites were spectacular!
