We had an amazing 10 day vacation in Italy thanks in large part to our travel company. We enjoyed having private drivers and tours, things that we may have been able to arrange on our own, but having it done for us ahead of time just took a lot of the stress out of the planning. All went smoothly and our guides and drivers were where they were supposed to be, when they were supposed to be there (the one exception was our driver who was to take us from the port in Naples to the train station. He arrived a few minutes later than us, but no harm done). Our tour guides for the Amalfi Coast, Pompeii, and the colosseum were well informed and fun to spend time with. Our hotels in Sorrento and Rome were well located and well appointed. Our specialist at the travel company was patient and understanding as I changed our itinerary a few times to plan a perfect 30th anniversary trip for my husband and me.
The Amalfi Coast was all that we had hoped for and then some. The views were stunning and we loved being able to visit Positano, Amalfi and Ravello. Our driver was skilled and we were glad that we had not attempted to drive the narrow roads on our own! Capri and the boat tour around the island was a highlight as well. The hotel we booked there was well worth the expense and I can't wait to go back!
Although we could not have been happier with our trip and the itinerary, there are a few things I would do differently if I were going to do it all again. I would consider flying in and out of Naples rather than Rome and concentrate all of our sightseeing on the coast, finding time for Naples as well. The other thing I might consider is taking the ferry from Naples to Positano, Amalfi, and/or Sorrento. Although the Amalfi Coast drive was beautiful, it was also incredibly crowded and made for a very long day with little time to spend in the coastal towns.
