Our trip was wonderful! Everything was very well planned and organized for us, and it all went as anticipated. Our agent and the other members of this Italy travel agency provided excellent service in working with us so that we could go to the places we wanted to see and to do the things we wanted to experience. They also gave us excellent suggestions of other things we might enjoy; for example, the Food Tour in Rome was a huge success with all of us. We spent three days in Rome and stayed in a condo in center city; walking distance from the Colosseum and other historical sites. We had a wonderful guide in Rome. She knew how to get into the major sites easily and in a timely manner. She was very well versed on the history of Rome and explained everything well for our grandchildren, children and us. We saw everything we wanted to see and more.
Next we went to Tuscany and had a wonderful driver who was very knowledgeable and accommodating. We stayed at the lovely Villa Cicolina where we experienced the charm of the region and the hospitality of the staff. We took day trips to Pienza, Montepulciano, Sienna, Pisa, Monteriggioni and Castellina in Chianti. We enjoyed the wonderful Italian wines and cheeses, especially the pecorino. We did a cooking class at the villa and had a unique experience preparing the evening dinner for the other guests and ourselves.
Leaving Tuscany, we did an unplanned stop at the American Cemetery outside of Florence; a reminder to all of us of those who gave their lives for our freedoms. We drove into Florence and toured the major sites of the city with a final stop at the Accademia Gallery to see the remarkable Michelangelos' David. We then drove on to Venice where we spent our last two nights in an apartment in center city. We were within walking distance of St. Marks Square. During our stay we visited the Doge's Palace, doing the Secret Itineray tour; did a gondola ride in the early evening and toured the shops and restaurants of the old city.
It was our third trip to Italy - Rome, Florence and Venice, and by far the best. Thank you to Zicasso, this travel agency and our travel specialist and her staff for making it possible
