Italy is an amazing place to visit. We visited Rome, Florence, and Venice over the course of 10 days. The trip was wonderful, and our itinerary was great. Our travel planner was very responsive whenever I contacted her and the services booked for us were always on time, professional, and courteous. All service providers spoke pretty good English too. Also, we felt the cost was reasonable and are overall very happy with everything.
Florence was the clear favorite of our 4-person group. Our hotel was amazing, shopping and dining right outside the front door, and we felt we got the best sense of the Italian culture there, probably thanks to our tour guide. Our tour guides were great in all three cities, and each taught us a ton of information about their respective locales. The Vatican was very memorable, as was our 14th century hotel in Venice! It is impressive that such old buildings are still in use across Italy, but the floors of our Venetian hotel were so uneven it felt like walking through a carnival funhouse! It certainly added character to the trip, and it was cool to see tour groups stop outside and talk about the building.
The one thing I would change concerns Rome: when we were provided transportation to a site (Colosseum, Vatican), we were not provided transportation back to the hotel after the tour. We were game for walking back as an opportunity to explore Rome, but our hotel was farther from those sites than we thought. Had we known, we probably would have ventured public transit. We walked 12 miles in 2 days, including the tours. My back was killing me. For the whole 10 day trip we walked a total of 32 miles! So if I were to do it all again, I would 1) get into better shape before hand, and 2) make sure when I get a ride out somewhere, I also get a ride back.
