We had an excellent family vacation in Italy. Our agent at this Italy travel company was fantastic. It was my first visit to Italy, and while I had done a fair amount of research and knew where I wanted to go, she helped shape the vacation and added lots of great (fun, cool, ...) experiences that most people do not even know about, let alone get to do. She also had outstanding contacts for tour guides in all of the locations--all consistently excellent, and it would be very hard to pick out one or two as favorites.
Our trip included Bellagio, Venice, Florence, and the Cinque Terre, with day trips to the Venetian islands, Verona, and smaller Tuscany cities. During the trip, there was frequent email contact and the ability to make minor time and location adjustments on the fly, which really helped us get to see and do even more than I had originally anticipated. I would unhesitatingly recommend this company for an Italy vacation and hope to make use of their services again.
Oh, there are so many! Here are some highlights:
Making pizza with a professional chef in Florence.
Learning to row a gondola (technically, a batellina) in Venice.
Hiking in the foothills of the Alps around Lake Como.
Dining and wine tasting at the Michelin-rated restaurant at the Venissa vineyard on Mozzorbo.
Morning run through the streets of Florence with a professional guide.
Driving tour in Tuscany.
Biking tour with the family in Florence.
The entire trip was enjoyable.
I am not sure I would change a whole lot. I might increase the time in the Cinque Terre on the very last day and shorten the time in Milan, a minor adjustment. I think the trip was extremely well-planned and virtually unimprovable.
