The following was submitted to the Harper Travel Office regarding a trip to Italy last fall:
“Our trip was great due in large part to your assistance. Thanks again. Absolute Italy was first class. We had the same driver for our three bookings with them, and the guides for the Vatican and Pompeii were great. Our driver, Fernando, was a really good guy and we enjoyed his company. We would request their services without hesitation.
As I said before, the Hotel Caruso is an outstanding property. There are three high-end hotels along the cliff in Ravello (Sasso and Palumbo being the others), but the Caruso is clearly in its own league. Great room, great service, great food, great pool, etc. The JW Marriott in Capri was also a very nice venue and we enjoyed our time in Capri.
The Villa Franca in Positano had a very warm, welcoming staff, but the rooms are small (but also considerably less expensive).
The Rose Garden Palace in Rome was in a great neighborhood and within walking distance to a number of Rome attractions. The room was spacious, and compared to the prices at other Rome venues, this was a very good deal. The fact they arranged a driver to pick up at the airport in Rome was also a very appreciated touch. It’s just down the street from the Excelsior and Hotel Eden and Via Veneto.
We enjoyed our meal at Aldo’s place. Sorry we missed your call, but with a 6-year-old you tend to eat a little earlier than the rest of Italy.
If we had it to do all over again, we would trade our time in Positano for more time in Capri and Ravello. Positano may be more well known but it certainly isn’t nearly as enjoyable as Capri and Ravello.” J.L.
