We went from Rome (overnight) - Pompeii - Sorrento - Amalfi Coast - Naples - Rome - Florence (day trip to Pisa - San Gimignano)- Venice - Milan back to Rome to fly out. This trip was all about convenience and exploring for us. We had never been to Italy before and we were going to be there for 3 weeks! We wanted to ensure that we could see as much as possible but at the same time really get to absorb and enjoy the culture instead of trying to figure out small details. Our itinerary was done really well and all of our guides were top quality - for example one of our food tour guides was a culinary chef professor instead and our other guide had her masters in art etc instead of it being random experience people. We really enjoyed the private guides as it's more intimate and the small 4-6 group guides. We had a cooking class in Sorrento at an organic farm where the views and the food was breathtaking! We also went wine tasting at Capannelle Winery in the Tuscan Valley which was unreal. All of these places are even more beautiful then the pictures which I didn't think was possible. San Gimignano was unreal - it's this little hilltop town with all this culture. That was our favourite spot in the 3 weeks we were in Italy.
I was really hesitant to deal with someone across the world and to pay them to plan our trip but our agent was a dream to work with. She was easily accessible as I emailed her very often and got responses almost immediately, and easily made modifications if and when required. She arranged everything from private drivers, guides, train tickets, hotels in the heart of the cities we went too. We would have had no idea if we had booked on our own as we would be going based on the internet alone. We quickly realized how valuable it was to have someone who is well versed in the place of your travels. We were also able to walk and explore everywhere by ourselves. It was a really good mix of leisure and adventures as it was worry free travelling. As they say - the only way to get over a vacation is to start thinking of your next one! We are definitely going to use Zicasso's services again.
We would add a couple more days for more leisure - and go when it's still fall but hot. We got a few days of rain through out our trip but it was starting to get cold. We had gone from Nov 1 - Nov 23.
