From

Rossella, our Joe Banana trip coordinator and Italy expert worked with us for about 6 months to design a detailed 11 day trip through northern Italy. She knew about all the sites to see and the various logistics needed to see them. With her advise we picked great hotels and restaurants. Our guide/driver and new friend Antonio picked me up in Nice to start the trip. My son and his wife joined us in Milan. We toured Milan with a local expert, Lake Como, Bellagio, Lake Garda, and Verona on our way to Venice. In Venice the local expert showed us the city including water taxis and private gondola ride. A trip to Murano was included. After 2 days we were off to Ferrara, Bologna and Florence. Three days there included a local expert city guide. Our full day trip to Cinque Terre was one of the many highlights. On the way to Siena we stopped at Pisa and San Gimignano. Enjoying wine and food are a must in this area. Tuscany is beautiful. If you are interested in wine I would recommend adding a trip to the Banfi Winery if you are in the area. At the end of our trip Antonio took us to Rome for our flights home. We will miss his friendly nature and all his help. Thank you Antonio and Rossella.

From Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

We just spent 11 wonderful days in Italy and JBL really made our trip special. Giovanni and Nunzio were wonderful drivers and guides. They were so flexible, made great suggestions, and were very entertaining. I have to say that Nunzio really connected with our family which just made things even more enjoyable. If we ever go back to Italy again we will certainly be using their services!
