Our recent family vacation was an unparalleled 5-star experience with Cathy and this Italy travel company. Beginning with the responsible car service who met us in the Rome airport on time with the right sized vehicle and car seat for a twenty month old, we went from one great experience to another. Our hotel/villa arrangements from Rome through Venice were ready and waiting for us. Each property was centrally located and thoroughly delightful.
For the main part of our vacation, our three adult children and families met us for a week in Tuscany. At Cathy's recommendation we chose a distinctive villa Podere Palazzo near to Trevinano in Tuscany. Great views and spacious grounds with gardens, pool and pond made this a perfect place to return to after a day of sightseeing.
And sightsee we did, Siena, San Gimignano, Florence, Montalcino, and our favorite Assisi. Tour guides took us around the various cities and taught us a bit of medieval history, Italian art and folklore. We saw walled cities, museums, cathedrals, monasteries, vineyards, grape harvesting, and spectacular views interspersed with great food and wine events all arranged byour travel agency. We had a cooking lesson right in the villa and hunted for truffles in Umbria. We dined on a mountaintop terrace -- excellent food and a wine tasting of Brunello wines added to the breathtaking views.
Five stars and many thanks to Cathy for listening to our vision for our vacation, recommending choices that met our expectations and for executing a flawless itinerary and document package.
Assisi was generally our favorite Medieval City.
The day in Umbria hunting truffles and sharing a rustic luncheon with homemade pasta, local wine, garlic bread toasted over an open fire was the most unique experience.
Spread it over two weeks and spend more time in the villa.
