"A hearty thank you to the DFTL team for the diligent thorough assistance, coordination and fabulous travel planning for a wonderfully enjoyed trip to Florence, Italy and Rome. Daniela made our trip unforgettable for 5 happy couples! We left filled with good eats with spot on dining reservations, fine wine and our minds exploding with Florentine history and knowledge. There will always be a special place in our hearts for Florence- thank you DF Tailored Travel & Lifestyle!"
"I would like to give my highest regards to the service DF provided for me and my family while vacationing in Florence and Venice! Daniela and her team was extremely attentive and the activities/dining recommendations were top notch! They took care of everything (including making the reservations) and put my mind at ease which allowed me, my wife and four daughters to have one of the best vacations of all time! I'm so very thankful for finding Daniela's website and would never hesitate to use them in the future. Thank you so very much! 5 out of 5 stars!”
"Our stay in Italy was beyond perfect. Of course the locale doesn’t hurt the experience! Thank you to Daniela and her amazing care. Working with her was fantastic. I will happily promote DFTL to the world. This company is just awesome!"
"We had a family re-union with ten people in Italy this June and DF Tailored Travel was invaluable in planning the trip and coordinating logistics while we were on vacation. The trip had a number of complexities including families traveling from a number of different cities as far away as Hong Kong, a number of seniors and some of the group could not speak English well. Daniela and her team's expert knowledge of Italy and local knowledge of the best and most personable guides, activities and itineraries made the trip extra special. It was a true pleasure working with DF Tailored Travel and would highly recommend them to any of our friends and family."
"Can dreams come true? They did with Daniela. I was introduced to Daniela by a mutual friend as I wanted to surprise my wife with a 30th anniversary trip to Italy. Her recommendations were spot on and reflected Daniela’s unique breadth of local knowledge and what everyone who uses her services will eventually appreciate, the “magic” of the name Daniela. She has a truly unique perspective and intuition that most don’t have. Thanks to Daniela and her team, we experienced a trip of a life time and wholeheartedly recommend her tailored lifestyle services for your trip of a life time!"
"We cannot thank Daniela enough for everything she did to make our few days in Florence so special! From the restaurant reservations to the Fiat and walking tours, we couldn’t have imagined a better visit. Daniela took the time to listen to our thoughts and transform them into a wonderful stay. We hope to return to Florence someday and look forward to visiting more gems of the city via Daniela’s recommendations!"
"My family and I have known Daniela for a decade. As a personal concierge for an exclusive vacation club, she helped introduce us to the nooks and crannies of Florence over the course of a week’s visit way back in 2007. Her knowledge and attentiveness was such that we sought her out when we moved to Florence a few years later. She became a close friend and the perfect adviser as we discovered Italy. Since our return to the States, she has continued to help us plan trips from Florence, to greater Europe, to Mexico, always introducing us to experiences we would otherwise never have known existed. We have recommended her to many of our closest friends, and she has always impressed! Thank you, Daniela!"
"Beyond the tremendous charm and awesome comfort of Tenuta Ceccatelli, we also really valued DF’s bespoke travel planning. The entire family thoroughly enjoyed the carefully chosen and expertly planned activities Daniela and her team organized for us. Three generations of our traveling family remarked about the unique, exquisite experience. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Daniela enabled us to create memories that we will forever cherish and her strengths are shining on us."

“Working with Daniela made us feel like part of the rich culture, history, and cuisine of Florence. Her passion, deep knowledge, and desire to share the secrets of her home city allowed us to experience parts of it we could have never found through any guidebook.

Her intelligence, attention to detail and discriminating eye are a constant that she loves to share. She directs her vast storehouse of knowledge in a way that is personal to you.”

She is wonderfully amiable, engaging and terrifically connected – not in a contrived way, but in a way where those who meet her remember her, and want to stay in touch with her. She has an innate knowledge of Florence and its surrounds far beyond a guide books and has a warmth that is priceless.”
