We had a marvelous day trip to Lari to see the Castle and visit with the Martelli family at their artisan pasta factory plus a great time at Guido's olive press and butcher shop. The lunch Guido provided was amazing. Massimo and Victoria were our guides. They even helped us to hunt down a restaurant that used to be in... More

Following exhaustive research we finally chose Arianna and Friends to organize our trip to Italy to attend the Andrea Bocelli concert. We could not have made a better decision. From our private transfer from Pisa airport to our hotel (expensive but worth every Euro) through the accommodation and the concert to our return to the airport the entire trip was... More

I can not rave enough about our cooking class with Arianna. We had 5 children with us and they created a menu that was thrilling to the kids, that they would eat and that they were able to create. We have made the strawberry Tiramisu since we have been back home and the kids keep asking to make the delicious... More

We recently had a port stop in Livorno while on a cruise and did a cooking class and trip to Pisa with Arianna & Friends. Everything was wonderful. The cooking class was great -- it was very well organized, the setting was amazing, the food was delicious and there was a wide selection of menu items to choose from. The... More

Arianna and Friends organised our trip to attend the annual Andrea Bocelli concert in Lajatico, to celebrate a significant birthday. Their organisation from first to last was of the highest order, having given us a choice of hotel packages, airport transfers, tickets for the concert and transport to the event itself. We had a wonderful trip and Arianna and her... More

Booked a transfer for see Andrea Bocelli from our hotel. All the staff are so professional and friendly. SO helpful and very very well run. They had lost of staff when you got off the bus to show you where to go and then again when we came out of the concert. Highly recommend them.

Arianna & Friends booked the most amazing stay at Agriturismo Il Mulinaccio and we were fortunate enough to experience 2 lessons/tours, organised by them. Firstly, the booking: the booking process, clear instructions and efficient professionalism were second to none. The cooking class with Mama Maria from Il Mulinaccio with Arianna as interpreter was brilliant. We had so much fun. We... More
