I started traveling around Italy in 2017 and finally I moved here to live, because Italy is the epicenter of art, history and beauty.
I will show you Italy from the most interesting sides, will share with you secrets and traditions of this country and will help make your trip unforgettable.

Crystalina, I returned from an 11-day trip in northern Italy after having the kind help of you to plan and build the itinerary. Happily, your recommendations were incredibly accurate and detailed, including parking, recommendations for restaurants and even leading ice cream parlors. We arrived at magical places, don't want to think what would have happened without your planning?! Thank you very much, Crystalina.
We decided to fly and opened up to Crystalina 10 days before the flight. Crystalina found out exactly what we wanted and built us an incredibly accurate trip. She found accommodations that just suited us, and attractions that just suited us. And in the process we had one problem, Crystalina immediately mobilized, made phone calls and solved the problem for us from the country. For everything we received an exact link and a map, including opening hours. Thanks to Crystalina, we had a calm and flowing trip. Thank you so much, Crystalina!
We purchased a travel itinerary for Tuscany from Crystalina, and it exceeded our expectations. The itinerary was well-planned and accurate, allowing us to have the perfect trip we envisioned. Additionally, Crystalina provided us with an excellent quote for car rental, and we were able to rent a car from Sixt at a much cheaper price compared to other competitors, saving us approximately $200. Highly recommended.
Crystalina prepared a simple and perfect trip for us, exactly according to our needs. We spent Sunday seeing special things in Milan and went shopping on Monday. She sent us to really worthwhile places! Then we went to Lake Como, with crazy views and lots of special observations. Every day we thought it was the most special it could be, and we were surprised to find out the next day that there was more! It was a fun and relaxed trip. We felt in good hands, and everything was accurate, including addresses from place to place, prices, and if we had a question, she immediately answered. In short, there are no words to describe it! I highly recommend Crystalina for anyone looking for a perfect trip without any headaches.
Crystalina was a pleasure to work with - friendly, kind, and always willing to help. We highly recommend her services for anyone planning a trip to Italy.
We used Crystalina to plan a trip to Northern Italy. Every tip and link provided was incredibly helpful. The planning process included changes and updates on our part, and Crystalina was accommodating and made adjustments to the itinerary according to our wishes. The trip was well-organized and filled with many delightful details. Thank you, Crystalina!
On the recommendation of a friend, we hired Crystalina's services to build an itinerary in Rome and Tuscany. Since I have never hired the services of a consultant to build an itinerary, I was initially skeptical about the very idea, but I quickly realized that she was a professional and we relied fully on her recommendations. Crystalina's recommendations were excellent, and hit exactly to our liking, both regarding the recommended travel sites and regarding the wonderful restaurants she recommended (it goes without saying). Thanks to her, we prepared and made suitable reservations long in advance, we knew how to conduct ourselves every day during the trip, we used the links she sent (up to the level of the parking lot!) and we are grateful that Crystalina, who is also a pleasant and available person, saved us a lot of time and effort and simply made sure that our trip was perfect. Thank you very much Crystalina :)
Crystalina built us a rich program according to our needs and requests. Even if we didn't always follow the plan exactly, it gave us great material to work with on plan changes and new combinations. The plan included a detailed description of how to get there, including a link to Google Maps and an exact address, which were very helpful in getting to the right place when we didn't know anything, and of course also important tips from someone with experience. We also received an update to the program after there was an unexpected change in the plans, and answers to various questions we had during the planning for the trip. Thank you very much, Crystalina!
We love exploring different areas of Italy each time we travel, and this time we chose the Dolomites. Crystalina created a detailed and personalized itinerary for us, highlighting the special points of interest that we love. The precise addresses he provided for using Viz or Google Maps were excellent and made navigation very easy. We were able to find the most convenient parking spots, central locations for lake views, and cable car access points without any trouble. It felt like he was virtually traveling with us and was readily available for any questions or clarifications. We highly recommend Crystalina services and look forward to using them again in the future
We took a 10-day trip to northwest Italy and contacted Crystalina to plan our itinerary. She was able to tailor the itinerary according to our preferences and even made changes as we requested. The itinerary was very detailed with photos, roads, and explanations, showing her professionalism and attention to detail.
We relied heavily on the itinerary that Crystalina prepared for us, and although we didn't follow it exactly, her advice and recommendations were very helpful throughout the trip. She also provided suggestions for accommodations and various tips.
Crystalina was very kind and accommodating, and we highly recommend her services.
We recently honeymooned in Italy for 11 days in January 2022, and Crystalina put together an amazing itinerary for us based on the questionnaire we filled out. She provided several options for each attraction, a variety of restaurant choices, and even included some hidden gems for breathtaking views. The daily plan was incredibly easy to follow with links to each location on Google Maps and Wise.
Crystalina built me a tailored itinerary for a trip to Rome, Venice, Dolomites, and Garda that was perfect for me and my 14-year-old teenager. He sent me a pdf booklet with explanations and links to everything, which was very easy to use. Crystalina was also available for questions on WhatsApp, which was very helpful. I'm very pleased that I turned to him because I didn't have time to build an itinerary on my own. It would have taken hours and days to do research and choose the best options, and even if I had time, it wouldn't have been my kind of fun. Thanks, Crystalina!
Crystalina planned an amazing two-week trip for us from the northwest of Italy (Cinque Terre region) to the Amalfi Gulf.

We returned from a trip to northern Italy (Garda) two weeks ago and we already miss it. Thanks to Crystalina's excellent itinerary planning, we were able to visit magical places.

From now on, we won't travel without professional travel planning. He saved us many hours of planning. When we travel to Southern Italy next time, we will definitely seek Crystalina help again.
I came across Crystalina's services by chance and with very little time before my flight. Despite the short notice, she was willing to help me build an itinerary for my trip. I was traveling with another family and we had small children with us.
Crystalina provided us with a detailed itinerary, complete with pictures, descriptions, and links. We were able to follow it almost entirely and had a wonderful time. She was also available to answer any questions we had, even those not directly related to the itinerary.

The itinerary included everything we could want, such as links to parking points, maps, itinerary descriptions, and photos. The time planning was excellent, with a full schedule that wasn't too busy. Overall, we were very satisfied with Crystalina's planning and highly recommend their services.
Crystalina saved us the headache and time of proper planning for such a trip. In Crystalina's program we got to taste northern Italy in a variety of flavors, mountains, towns, attractions and nature.

Planning our trip was a challenge as we had limited time, but Crystalina created the perfect itinerary for us based on our requests.

I must add that after last year's successful trip, we returned to the same area in Italy (Dolomites) this year and once again sought Crystalina's expertise to build our itinerary. She did not disappoint! The itinerary was customized to our preferences and included points of interest and food recommendations that made our trip even more exciting. We were thrilled with the experience!
Crystalina built us an amazing plan according to our needs in less than a day. Everything was accurate and very simple. The document we received accompanied us the entire trip and included itinerary on maps at the click of a button, restaurant recommendations, stories, and recommended places to stay. My wife and I spontaneously found free time to fly to Italy, but due to too much spontaneity, we didn't have time to plan. Thanks to Crystalina, we had a great trip without any stress. It was a great value for a very cheap price!
Our trip to the Dolomites was an absolute success thanks to Crystalina's expert planning. We were taken to the most stunning places with precise navigation and a seamless itinerary. Crystalina even went above and beyond to help us when we encountered an urgent issue with a COVID test during our travels. Their quick assistance was truly a lifesaver.
I highly recommend Crystalina's services to anyone planning a trip to Northern Italy. We look forward to working with them again on our next visit to the region.
The smartest thing I did on our family trip was to choose Crystalina to plan our itinerary. We traveled as a large family of 8 people with children of different ages and interests, and the itinerary she planned was great. Crystalina provided us with recommendations for a house rental that was suitable in size and quality, and was always available to answer any questions before and during our trip.
