Once in a lifetime

There are certain events that are so extraordinary that we have called them "Once in a Lifetime".

Amongst the many special experiences we can offer we have chosen to highlight some of our favourites; the Opera in Verona, the Palio in Siena, the Royal Military Edinburgh Tattoo and the Venice Carnival.

This is just a taste of the diversity of things you could do.

What they say about us:

We had travelled to the Amalfi coast with The Contented Traveller so we didn't hesitate to ask Josephine to organise our honeymoon to Venice for the Carnival.

It was truly one of the most magical trips and we still recount the memories... perfect planning, the lovely hotel, the helpful costumier, the wonderful costumes they found for us, dressing up and walking down to St Mark's Square in costume, being snapped by people in front of Cafe Florian and then taking a gondola to the Masked Ball, the amazing costumes of the guests, the palazzo, food, event, simply eye-popping and atmospheric! We felt like children again - not a care in the world...

Josephine is the consummate professional and catered to all our requirements. The Contented Traveller offers unique and highly personal service and we would always travel with them if we wanted something special.
