I have traveled in Italy for over a decade with my two daughters, and found myself many times facing challenges getting where I needed to go while navigating luggage, strollers, cobblestone streets, crowds, stairs, and confusing directions. Friends and relatives joining us on our journey often dealt with similar difficulties. I felt that if only I had a friendly and trusted person to help me with my arrival or departure and unforeseen needs in between, I could travel with more peace of mind and share such a resource with others. This is why I founded Prontopia, to create a safe and simple way to get local in-person help exactly when and where you need it.
Venice can be a difficult city to navigate. Get where you need to go stress-free – schedule a Prontopia local assistant to help you today!
Prontopia is something absolutely new! We all have tales of traveler woes experiencing the ripple effects when one thing goes wrong in an unfamiliar place. Now there’s an app for preventing that – you can request trusted help and ensure your travel day is not a waste. We like to say that with Prontopia, YOUR TRIP STARTS NOW. By avoiding costly and annoying mistakes getting where you need to go, you can enjoy your destination from the second you arrive.
There are many ways you can use the Prontopia app during your next trip.
When in Rome, you might need in-person help to reach your accommodation in areas of the city restricted to cars, and to avoid scams or transport delay; when in Florence you may need someone to help you to find a great restaurant or gelato in the historical center, and when in Venice you definitely will need a friendly Local that shows you the way in order to not get lost.
You can have it all by booking a Prontopia Local connection before your departure. And do you know the best part? You only pay for the time you spend with the Local (for a reasonable starting as low as 7 euro), there are no upfront costs and you will be charged only when the connection ends.
You can also pre-schedule online.
I invite you to register with Prontopia today so you can enjoy a better time in the city.
