It was a truly wonderful, memories-for-a-lifetime kind of trip. We would not have been able to put it together quite the same way without the help of this Italy tour operator. And, we would not have known about this company without the help of Zicasso.
We went to northern Italy. The private cooking class in Tuscany that Doug suggested we take was a very memorable addition to our trip. We almost decided not to make the time or expense, but it ended up being one of those activities that really made our trip stand out among other people's experiences.
I would spend a little more money on a level higher hotel in Venice. We saved money there because we did not think we would be spending much time in the room, but next time I will make sure the first place we stay is a bit more special.
