Guilian, my Italy agent was spectacular!! My private guides were smart, funny, and extremely knowledgeable. The hotels close to major sites. In Rome we were 2 blocks from the Collseo, in Florence directly on the Piazza de Signora. She tracked our progress through Italy and even sent a cell phone so that if any problems occured,we could always reach each other. I never expected such personalized care. I have raved about her since I returned from Italy!
I loved Rome and Florence. The ancient Roman ruins could not fail to impress with the genius of their engineering skills. We saw a first century house with herringbone patterened brick floors and running water. In Florence the genius of the Renaissence artists was eveywhere.
Go in cooler weather. It was 100 degrees most days.
How did you find out about Zicasso?
Got lucky on the internet.
