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.
San Gimignano is a strikingly beautiful city in Tuscany, which has taken refuge behind beautifully preserved ramparts with 14 (originally there were 72) towers. It was named after the Bishop of Modena, who is said to have repelled an attack by Attila and his Huns. San Gimignano is spread among cornfields, olive groves and vineyards in a green agricultural area.

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.
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 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.
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 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!
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.
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. Crystalina was always available to answer any questions, even during the trip, which made us feel calm and relaxed. We highly recommend her services as it was worth every penny!
Crystalina built us an itinerary for 10 days for a family with 3 children.
The itinerary was very detailed and included exact links to the places as well as the parking places.
She was a great help for everything we asked of her and made the trip very easy to do.
She was very available and gave great service.
Crystalina provided exceptional service during our week-long trip with a group of 5 friends to northern Italy, including Garda and the Dolomites. She was responsive and accommodating, making changes to our itinerary as needed. Crystalina provided an organized and detailed itinerary complete with links to Google Maps/Waze for each location, making navigation a breeze. I highly recommend her services to anyone planning a trip to Italy.
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!
We recently returned from a trip to Northern Italy, which was expertly planned by Crystalina. The region was truly breathtaking and the itinerary that Crystalina created for us was nothing short of perfect. Her attention to detail and accuracy in selecting the right attractions and activities was impressive, and the file and guidance she provided were very helpful throughout the trip.
Crystalina built us an 11-day trip in the Garda, Venice, and Tuscany region, gave us great tips, organized itineraries for each day and region, and was always available for questions and advice. Highly recommended! Thank you very much, Crystalina.
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!
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.
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. Crystalina's answers to the little details are efficient and quick. Worth every penny - saves a lot of potential frustration and disappointment. Thanks Crystalina.
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!
Crystalina built a detailed and precise ten-day itinerary for us to the Dolomites. We requested trails in nature suitable for those who are comfortable with walking. 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.
Planning our trip was a challenge as we had limited time, but Crystalina created the perfect itinerary for us based on our requests. Her professionalism and attention to detail were evident in every aspect of the trip. She was always available to answer any questions or address any concerns, both during the planning phase and while we were traveling. With her help, we were able to visit some amazing and off-the-beaten-path destinations. The provided links were extremely helpful and made navigating our trip a breeze. I highly recommend Crystalina for anyone looking to have a stress-free and well-planned trip to Italy.
Crystalina, planned a great itinerary for us according to our tastes in Italy. The itinerary was detailed down to the smallest detail. 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.

and provided important information.
Great service at a good price that saved us time and upgraded the trip.
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 planned an amazing two-week trip for us from the northwest of Italy (Cinque Terre region) to the Amalfi Gulf. The planning was extremely professional and detailed, down to the last detail, and Crystalina was always available to us throughout the trip. We came back very satisfied and with thousands of beautiful photos and unforgettable experiences. We highly recommend Crystalina's travel planning services.
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 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
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!
Crystalina is very attentive, knowledgeable and gives you an answer for everything. She is very flexible and provides excellent value. We were there for 4 days and thanks to Crystalina's preparation, we felt like we were there for 2 weeks. Highly recommended!
