"Our trip exceeded our expectations in every way. It proved to be one of the best travel values for the money spent that we have ever experienced." Mark and Deni, NM, Calabria
"Cherrye was very thorough and fun to talk with. The My Bella Vita website and newsletter were very helpful, and the custom information that Cherrye gave us was exactly what we needed. Our trip to Calabria could not have been better, thanks to Cherrye!" Jan and Chris, Calabria and Sicily
"My Bella Vita Travel did an outstanding job of developing a custom itinerary around our unique interests and needs. The accommodation and services developed for us exceeded our expectations and allowed us to take full advantage of our limited time on the Amalfi Coast." Melinda, Amalfi Coast
"Heartfelt thanks to you, Cherye, for the trip of a lifetime. I met two cousins in the Trebisacce area, and family I didn't know I had in Catanzaro, all of whom I have come to love as much as my American family. Thanks for the memories!" Diane, Calabria and Sicily
"Cherrye did an awesome job of setting up our itinerary and hooking us up with incredible guides. Our expectations were exceeded and we felt secure in our daily excursions. Plus, Cherrye organized the itinerary so that we had free time on our own and didn't feel like we were on a whirlwind tour. We were able to enjoy the sightseeing and still had time to do our "passegiata" each evening. The Atrani festa that she told us about was not to be believed!! So glad we were able to do it!" Joe and Eleonora, Amalfi Coast
"Thank you very much for all your accurate recommendations and our customized travel guide. This is the best travel service I have ever come across during my 20+ years of international traveling." Tricia C., Puglia
"We plan on coming back with our entire family and would ONLY use My Bella Vita Travel. It was a wonderful and thought-filled planning experience and very much appreciated Cherrye's keen attention to detail!! Peppe (our guide in Calabria) is our new BFF." Carol, New Freedom, PA, Calabria and Campania
"Doing ancestry research online is nothing like having someone on the ground who can do research for you. Cherrye and Peppe found even more information about my family and gave us a new appreciation of our roots. And they found a living relative who we were able to meet and have lunch with - what a surprise and a hoot!!!!" Donna Ferrari, Philadelphia, Calabria
