The http://www.italian-short-breaks.co.uk/verona-opera-holidays.php. The pickup at the airport and return journey to the airport was faultless in lovely cars, the hotel was first class and we appeared to have been upgraded to a suite. The seats at the opera were excellent and the opera was unforgettable. Thank you all very much and thank you for the complimentary bottle of prosecco to start our ruby wedding celebrations off in style.

From the pick-up from the airport in a shiny new Mercedes, our arrival at the delightful, peaceful and luxurious Hotel Accademia in Verona to our never-to-be forgotten experience at two operas at the Arena in Verona, this was a trip of sheer perfection. It could not have been better. We loved every minute. Thank you, Italian Short Breaks.

I wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our journey on the Orient Express.

Everything was first class, from the check-in at Victoria Station to our return to London. The British Pullman was a beautiful train and brunch was delicious, particularly with a couple of Bellinis. The service was impeccable from the very friendly and professional staff. Even the journey on the coach en route to Calais was made more pleasant by friendly staff and some English sparkling wine.

The Orient Express exceeded my expectations, starting with the welcoming glass of Champagne from our super-efficient and obliging cabin steward, to superb meals in the magnificent dining cars, to the personal touches in our cabins, to the friendliness of the other passengers, to the "goodies" in the shop on board and to the beautiful scenery en route, particularly in Switzerland.

Then Venice itself. Our room over the lagoon was just perfect; we could see what was going on outside, but without any noise or commotion. The degustation dinner on arrival was first class, and our breakfasts in the garden were a lovely way to start the day. Again, the staff were very friendly and helpful. Our surprise ending was the water taxi right to the airport. No traffic jams on the waterway!

Thank you for organising it for us; we really did have a very happy and memorable trip.

We had a very enjoyable weekend. The informative guide took us to places we couldn't have reached on our own and we picked up a lot of the history about the race. The travel arrangements worked well and the Palazzo Ravizza Hotel was excellent. The guide took us to the Cathedral but many of us had paid to see it on Saturday.

Absolutely first class from start to finish. The private water taxi from the airport to the hotel in Venice made us feel like VIPs, and the hotel was beautiful and situated in a perfect location for all our activities. Our room overlooked the lagoon and was definitely worth the upgrade, while all the hotel staff would bend over backwards to deliver a perfect service. The itinerary for the short break was ideal as it gave us plenty to do but also time for us to explore at our own pace. The Doge's palace was fantastic though (voucher and queue jump no problem). All in all a wonderful trip to mark my partners 30th birthday. Ian.

Excellent service from Hannah and the team. Verona is a lovely city with great restaurants and cafes. You eat at moderately priced places or more! Italy isn't cheap but it is beautiful. Trip to Lake Garda was excellent as was the tour round Isola Garda. We decided not to bother with the time in Simeone as it was absolutely heaving; instead we went back to Verona and had a brilliant time just watching all the activities in the square. Thoroughly recommend.

What a great, great weekend we had in Sienna! Thanks to your staff and particularly to you for getting us to the Palio. I can't say it was a once in lifetime event because my hope is to return sooner than later. So please leave us on your emailing list.

We returned home today from our outstanding A la Carte weekend celebration for my special birthday.

May I thank you for the extra special help in organising chauffeur service on our day to Lake Maggiore, and arranging for opera tickets being delivered to our hotel on arrival.

Both my wife and I had a most memorable and special weekend and the opera at La Scala was a quite stunning experience.

Sitting here at the airport on the way back from Venice, we had a really lovely long weekend and just wanted to say thanks.

Everything worked really well, it was nice to be meet at the airport and taken by car (a very short journey) to the docks for the exciting journey to Venice. Hotel was just brilliant, terrific staff, quirky in a nice way, and the gourmet meal was brilliant. Private tour with guide was a super way to see some of the more unusual sights. Highlight was definitely the opera, outstanding combination of great performances and a terrific location.
