Our travel agent was fabulous. We told her the places we wanted to go, and she planned a wonderful trip for us. She was also able to allay any fears we had about traveling in a foreign country. There were porters arranged at almost every stop to get us to and from the train station or airport to our hotel. Our agent suggested a couple of places that weren't on our itinerary (Boboli Gardens, awesome!) and we had mentioned that we did not want a super busy vacation but wanted some time to explore on our own, which she accommodated. The hotel accommodates were all very nice, the tours she arranged for us were smaller groups and were very informative, and we really appreciated the skip-the-line tickets.
She also referred us to a flight specialist, who found airline tickets for us that were $600 less than what we were finding on our own.
We did have one small hiccup in Pisa, for some reason the tickets our agent sent us for the Leaning Tower of Pisa were not acceptable when we tried to get in, but a very nice gentleman in the Leaning Tower office called the travel company office for us, and our agent told us if we would like to purchase the tickets on our own they would reimburse us. Problem solved!
All in all, the trip exceeded our expectations. Thank you!
Every day brought a new favorite thing for me. The Statue of David was probably one of my favorites, as was the Leaning Tower of Pisa. The Colosseum in Rome was also fascinating. Every destination had something new and exciting for us. Cinque Terre was another favorite. And let's not forget the gelato!
There was one walking tour we had on our second night in Venice. I probably would skip that, or have it on the first night. Don't think I'd change anything else.
