Description

Legend, history, art and symbology swirl together in a myriad of golden mosaics in Venice’s main church: Saint Mark’s Basilica.The relics of Saint Mark the Evangelist are still enshrined inside today, after his body was plundered from Alexandria, Egypt. Fact or fiction? Only faith will give us the answer, and such was the faith of the Venetians in their patron saint that they honoured him with a church of splendour unparalleled in the rest of the world.Artistic beauty and riches evoke the enduring spirituality of the Christian faith. Each angle, each detail, each marble flagstone or column has a story to tell; in an instant they take us back to the sacred scriptures, to the life of Christ, the Virgin Mary and St. Mark. Led by the hand, we tread a celestial path of salvation.But there are other routes waiting to be discovered – or rather rediscovered – because it is us who have lost the ability nowadays to interpret the signs that even the most ordinary people of the past were able to understand. Nothing was left to chance; everything had a specific meaning set deep in context. Today it’s up to us to seek out the traces of that past which we still find all around us.Yet for all of this we need time, silence, solitude and a voice to relate the stories and reveal the hidden truths.Amid the daily chaos of millions of tourists thronging the Basilica, this is inconceivable. But in the evening, when the hurried and oblivious sightseers leave the city and the doors of the church are opened especially for you, this dream will become a reality.

Client Testimonials

Dear Guiseppe and Jesse,
We just returned from our most wonderful vacation to Italy and wanted to first thank you for putting together such a wonderful trip, and second to provide some feedback for the future.

Hotels
1. Hotel Sovestro in San Gimignano was wonderful. The staff were very friendly and helpful and made the first portion of our journey very stress free. They made us feel like we were part of their family. I would recommend it to anyone and would specifically ask for it if we were to make a return visit.

2. Hotel La Baia in Monterosso was nice and it's location was very good especially for us older folks humping luggage from/to the train station.

3. Hotel Lucchesi in Florence- what can I say expect FANTASTIC. The rooftop view at sunset is well worth it. Again very friendly and helpful staff. Would recommend it to everyone.

Wine Tour
Money well spent. We had a great time overall. The driver Mario was OUTSTANDING. He had lots of local knowledge as well as about winemaking. USE HIM AGAIN!!!

The various wineries we visited on tour:
Altesino- fantastic and they were not cheap on their pouring. Great experience.
Azienda Agricola Patrizia Cencion Sloaria- Again a great tour by one of the owner's daughters. We felt like we were the only thing on their mind although there were other customers there. A great way to complete the day.

Again we had a fantastic time and are very appreciative of everything you booked for us. We wish you continued success and if our travels should bring us back to Italy, we know who to call.
