Our travel agency did an OUTSTANDING job of booking our trip to Italy April 2018. Everything was scheduled perfectly; no problems with hotels, tours, guides, drivers, outings, etc. Everything was first class. We could not have asked for a more perfect trip. This was a trip of a life time for us and the memories we have are priceless. Thank you to this travel agency for a job well done! The wonderful laminated book of our trip is just beautiful with the pictures and our itinerary.
The hotel selection in each city was outstanding. Each hotel was unique, but special in it's own way. The included breakfasts were outstanding. The most unique hotel we stayed in was in Florence, Italy. There are only 13 suites in this unique hotel, original building built in the 1500's, with frescoes dating from the 18th century covering all the walls of our room and even with a private courtyard.
Other memorable things from our trip were some of the special tours suggested by the travel agency - the Cooking class one evening in Florence where we made homemade pasta and sat around with 8 other people enjoying the fruits of our labor and wine and chatting into the wee hours.
Another fun tour was the supper stroll in Rome. We were in a fun group of 10 other people, walking from restaurant to restaurant to eat a different course at each place and the guide giving us information on each course. So much delicious food!
The private tour around Capri was also a highlight of our trip. Beautiful and relaxing and then in a little row boat to go into the Blue Grotto.
Each private driver we had was delightful, punctual, professional and informative. The travel agency chose excellent car services for every part of our trip.
We should have done this trip 10 years ago. Our age (mid 70's) and the fact that there is so much walking, so many steps/stairs, in and out of boats, etc. made it difficult at times. We found it difficult to keep up with some of the tour guides - they had distance to cover in a certain amount of time, and we understood that, but it was exhausting at times and we missed some of the tour having to stop and rest or just not being able to keep up.
We had to laugh - every time we asked for directions, "Oh, just 5 minute walk"; ended up taking 30 minutes for us!
We would definitely pack differently too. Weather was supposed to be cool and ended up hot. Also took too much "stuff". Would liked to have known that there are NO WASHCLOTHS in the hotels - not even the 5 star ones. Would liked to have taken my own. :-)
