Our agent at this Italy travel company knows her way around Italy. Even though I am a seasoned international traveler I would have made some poor choices about hotel locations if had I planned the trip independently . Our private driver arrangements were luxurious and each driver was friendly but professional. After leaving Florence, we made stops in Vinci for the Leonardo Museum and in Pisa before continuing to the Northern lake region of Italy. The foodie tour Barbara arranged from the Bologna area was a highlight of the trip. The making of Parmigiano Reggiano cheese at a small factory and vinegar production at a local farm was facinating . A boat ride on Lake Garda to Mount Baldo was a great way to spend a day . In all the trip was well planned, the hotels all well above expectations , and the guide in Florence was interesting and helpful as we were able to completely skip the lines for admission the Accademia Gallery .
Each city has its own charm but the Islands of Burano and Murano were colorful and fun and both the shopping and dining were excellent.
The guided tour of the Uffizi Gallery was not the best.....we didn't enjoy being led around by a guide holding a red flower above her head. The group was too large and the earphones provided were not clear. We left the group and were able to enjoy the museum at our own pace .
