Our travel agency did a fantastic job orchestrating the perfect vacation for our family. Just about every detail was thoughtfully planned, with activities that kept everyone in our family engaged and entertained. The activities were spaced out perfectly, to allow lots of planned, guided sight seeing and the right amount of downtime to ensure that we didn't get exhausted. I will never use a travel agent again who is not based out of the place that I want to visit. The benefits of using a local agent are impossible to list. All of our guides were local, veteran members of the communities that we visited, and our travel agency was very knowledgeable about authentic experiences. They handled every detail, and made the whole experience very, very easy and enjoyable. I would highly recommend them for anyone planning a trip to Italy! Grazie Mille!
We LOVED ending our trip in Sorrento after sightseeing around Italy. Spending a few days on the coast, lounging by the Sea and the pool at thehotel was the perfect ending to a wonderful holiday. We also LOVED our visit to Pompeii and my 11-year-old son loved gladiator school in Rome as well as the cooking class in Sorrento.
Only because I have now seen Venice twice, I would skip it because it is being completely over-run by tourists. I feel that Italy needs to put an end to allowing cruise ships to visit Venice. It is too small for such massive tour groups and it is very sad that the sheer number of people taking away from the enjoyment of such a global treasure. I also understand that the tour groups come during the day, visit the city, and then leave without injecting much into the local economy, as they do not stay in hotels, but rather on the ships, and they eat on board the ships rather than in the local restaurants.
I would only recommend going to Venice in the off-season.
The only other small snag in our trip was in visiting the farm where the mozzarella demonstration was held. The proprietors of the farm were not attentive to us at the end of our visit, and left us sitting, confused, in their dining room while they attended a large group that had arrived after us. We sat unattended for a long time, until our driver called the farm to find out where we were, and they came to tell us that it was time to go. The miscommunication made us late for our cooking class in Sorrento, which obviously irritated her.
