Katy your recommendations and blog have helped make planning my next trip to Italy so much easier.

I never heard of the Italian Riviera until I read your blog. We have changed our plans to include 4 days in Portofino. I found a small villa right on the shore.

Thank you so much for your help with our trip to Italy.  

I thoroughly enjoyed our time in Italy and the lovely hotels you suggested helped tremendously. We loved them all. The views from the terraces, the breakfasts, the position, the service, all great!
