Ciao! 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.

One of the best holiday places in Italy is the old and very cute town of Riva del Garda, which is located on the northern shore of Lake Garda. The city is surrounded by mountains as part of the Alpine Range, part of which is called the Dolomites.

Nice hotel, location is very central, there is a paid car park for the hotel, but I parked in free car parks nearby. The room was very nice, clean and big, overlooking the square. The staff was very friendly. The panoramic pool is wonderful. With a beautiful view. With hot water. With a jacuzzi. And the spa is lovely, it has a sauna, turkish bath and jacuzzi as well as a herbal tea area and a massage bed area! Highly recommend it!

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.

Anthony Long

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!

Avery Flores

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.
