La Corte di San Giacomo

Testimonial time again for Merrion:

“Merrion is an absolute Rockstar! 

As someone who finds planning trips usually pretty relaxing; I was not anticipating how hard/stressful it was going to be to find the perfect destination for our Wedding and Honeymoon… AND THEN I FOUND MERRION!!

Straight away Merrion was on the case, free to skype and email at all times and actually LISTENED to what I wanted! (which after speaking with other travel concierges I had found this to be a rare quality).

Although I pestered her with countless emails and questions, Merrion was always cheerful and happy to help. It never felt like I was just another job to her, but like I had a new friend who was just as excited as I was in planning this amazing time!

Also having someone who spoke English and Italian so fluently made organising everything so easy and streamlined - I could ask Merrion any questions for every destination and she always could find me an answer! She was also open and honest with details and the cost.

I could not recommend Merrion highly enough and will definitely be using her for our next Italian Trip. I could not have asked for a better few weeks in Italy. Merrion was the rockstar that helped make that happen, and I will be forever grateful! Myself and my friends will definitely be hitting her up for all our Italian experiences and I suggest you do too!!!"
