My husband and I wanted to plan a special vacation for our 50th anniversary and we decided on Italy. The planning was up to me and I had no idea where to start because I have never been to Italy. I began a search on the internet "How to plan a trip to Italy?" and many sites came up, but one site was very efficient, this company, and they set me up with a Travel Specialist right away who was extremely knowledgeable and understood our needs for the trip. She planned a wonderful trip to Rome with a stay at ta hotel which as in walking distance to many sites. She assigned us a private tour guide and driver who picked us up in the morning and showed us the popular tourist sites. From there we took a train to Naples where a private driver pick us up and brought to Pompeii where a tour guide was waiting to show us the ruins. The driver came back for us and drove us to Positano. We stayed at a lovely boutique hotel with a terrace overlooking the sea. The hotel was amazing, it was so much fun walking through the seaside village-the food and shopping was wonderful. Our travel specialist also included a trip to the island of Capri with our own private skipper where we had a lunch provided by the travel company. We totally enjoyed Positano and would definitively return there in the future. From there went to Florence at stayed at another beautiful boutique hotel where we had a beautiful room overlooking the Arno River. We had a great tour guide who walked us through many beautiful historical sights. We saw the opera Carmine on our own. This city was also amazing! Then to Tuscany to another outrageous hotel. The room and the views were spectacular. there we went on wine tasting tours and sighting seeing in Sienna-fantastic food and wine-we even had tour guide with a PhD in history. Totally magical! From there we took a train to Venice where we took a boat to our hotel which was magnificent overlooking the canals and market place-there we toured beautiful Cathedrals, glass blowing, a Gondola ride provided by the travel company. This was a trip of a lifetime and our travel adviser was in contact with us throughout the trip to make sure everything was perfect. We cannot thank her enough for the magnificent trip she designed for us. We would highly recommend this company for travel planning. You will not be disappointed!
That is a difficult question because every city had special points of interest which made the trip delightful! Every region had it's own style. The Sistine Chapel in Rome was amazing, Pompeii fascinating-the Statue of David In Florence incredible , St. Mark's Basilica in Venice absolutely beautiful. Our trip to Capri was so romantic-the countryside of Tuscany was gorgeous-the history of this country from the birth of Christ and before was unbelievable. Everything was memorable!
If we could take our trip again we really wouldn't change anything!
