Magnificent trip to Lucca and Tuscany

 Since we returned from our magnificent trip to Lucca and Tuscany with you, we have been reflecting just how special it was. We were looking for stress free holiday with all the trimmings…divine food and wine, fabulous outings and wonderful company, which you delivered on everything with style. We feel very blessed that we came on the villa vacation with you both, and look forward to spending another adventure in the future. Warmest regards Judy Sinclair and Colin MacKenzie : Auckland : NZ Viaggio Under the Tuscan Sun – Villa Controni : July 2016        ...

Wonderful week, great company, fabulous food & wine

We thank you both for a wonderful week of great company, fabulous food & wine. It was a great way to finish our holiday in Europe. The villa accommodation and surrounds were very luxurious which gave us that special feeling. The excursions and concerts were well organised, exciting and well planned. All in all a very relaxing week. Well done Rex & Jenny : Auckland : NZ        ...

Fabulous property – wonderful cuisine

In July we spent two glorious weeks at Villa Controni in Lucca.  It is a fabulous property in the countryside.   Lance and Lisa were great hosts taking us to some amazing places and cooking us wonderful meals. The concerts in Lucca were fantastic and well worth a few late nights.   We were sad to leave after the two weeks but Lance and Lisa planned our next two weeks in Italy for us which were also amazing.   They made everything so easy for us.  Overall this trip would have to be in the top three of our many overseas holidays. Looking forward to seeing next year’s itinerary. Kindest regards, Rosemary and David          ...

An Amazing Experience

“We had the most amazing holiday with Viaggio at Villa Controni. We were so impressed with the attention to detail, inside and out.  The Villa exceeded our expectations.   Our room was spacious and luxurious.  Location was perfect and having meals & excursions arranged by Lance & Lisa was so stress free.  A very relaxing holiday, look forward to travelling with Viaggio again.” Sharon ⎮Auckland, NZ ⎮ May 2010 “It’s always more fun to travel with friends and even though I didn’t know anyone aside from the organizers, the tour was set up in such a way that everyone got to know each other pretty quickly and we became firm friends. Travelling by myself has never been so much fun. We also had a local who drove us around and he would point out all the best places to eat… including the BEST GELATO IN THE WORLD! Gelateria Dondoli in San Gimignano, definitely something that will make everyone back home jealous of you. The villa we stayed in was beautiful, elegant and felt like we were stepping into a show-house, except instead of leaving after admiring it, you get to stay in it! The only downside to this tour is the sadness you feel when everyone goes their own separate way, and when you have to leave the beautiful, majestic villa you called home during your stay. “ Gwyneth ⎮Auckland, NZ ⎮July 2016          ...

A truly wonderful experience

A truly wonderful experience. Lisa and Lance are fantastic hosts. A very relaxed & laid back approach to everything made you feel very much on holiday. At the same time they both delivered an outstanding 11 day holiday package at Villa Controni in the village of Vorno just outside Lucca. The excursions offered were all outstanding with fantastic guides with a wealth of knowledge. The highlight for me was the Viaggio surprise. Montechiari. One word. Outstanding!!! The accommodation at the Villa was fabulous and the food served at each meal was prepared with pride and passion. The people on this particular holiday were all genuinely wonderful. Lots of fun and laughs. I have come away from this holiday with two things to look forward to. 1 .. My next Viaggio Vacation 2 .. Catching up with all my fabulous new friends Thank you Lisa and Lance Ka nui te aroha ki a korua Marita J Hamilton, NZ July...

A Big Thank You

  A journey with Lance and Lisa is not just a holiday, it is an experience. After 5 wonderful trips with them at the helm, we would not travel any other way. All bookings and details are taken care of, yet there is always room for flexibility as we go. We have stayed in quaint, historic hotels, visited off-the-beaten-track sights, and sometimes been taken out of our comfort zones for an added dimension. There is always an unexpected “ah” moment thrown in some time before we return home. For a holiday to remember, we recommend Viaggio. Brian and Anne Whangarei, NZ June 2012     Where will it be next?!     We have just completed our second trip and once again our time away was all we could have hoped for.   Every thing was of the best quality and delivered to us by an extremely professional duo.  It was New Orleans and New York first, then Europe this year.   Where will it be next?! Anne and Murray Palmerston North, NZ June 2012     I have been on two Viaggio Vacations and highly recommend them. I am a person on my own and it was lovely having all the worry of booking flights and accommodation all done for me, there is no stress at all. When arriving at your destination every thing is organized and nothing is a problem.  Lance and Lisa are a lovely caring couple who will make your holiday something you can’t stop talking about. Pauline Wellington, NZ June 2012   If you are looking for a personal touch … We have just been on a seven week journey in Europe, with Lance and Lisa from Viaggio. We have seen places that we would not have seen without them. They not only organized the trip but Lance is also the chef, very handy. If you are looking for a personal touch on your next journey, you will not go wrong with Viaggio. Rae & JR Foxton Beach, NZ June 2012     We just love traveling with Viaggio. As this is not the first time I have travelled with Viaggio but the 5th all I can say is that all have been absolutely FANTASTIC FRIENDLY HELPFUL VERY VERY INTERESTING and...
