We give a high recommendation to this Italy travel company and enjoyed talking and working with our agent about our plans for the trip. She was delightful.
Our driver in Rome certainly know his way around the streets and the scooters and his suggestions for small local restaurants were delicious. Our guide for Rome and the Vatican, was the most experienced guide we have had. The hotel in Rome was the perfect place to stay - from the garden breakfast to it's location in the city and the courtesy of the staff.
Train to Pompeii was fine and our driver was familiar with the area. While we enjoyed the tour of Pompeii, we felt a bit rushed and while we understand the lack of historical artifacts, which for safety reason are in the Napoli Museum, the tour wasn't totally what we expected. Also, we were surprised and disappointed that there was little mention of the Roman aqueduct system. A tour of the museum would have completed our visit to Pompeii.
On the Amalfi Coast our hotel was a beautiful place to stay with the balcony and the stunning views overlooking the water, the hills, homes and all the activity. Our guide gave us good tour of the coast and knew great places for photography and where there were less crowds.
Our only suggestion would be to have had the two planned meals -a lovely full course lunch in the13th century Norman tower along the coast and then later that evening the masterful prepared and served several course dinner at Don Alfresco followed by a tour of the kitchen, the wine cellar and the well now used to cool the cheese. Too much for one day! We would suggest one meal on our free day and then the dinner on our final night and this would have been more enjoyable. Please note that we did not have the tasting of limoncello in a family run store nor we were not able to have the Buffalo Mozzarella tasting at local farm; both these had been listed in our itinerary.
We certainly will recommend Zicasso to any of our private touring friends and this travel agency to those traveling to Italy.
