The trip was wonderful. Our travel company did an excellent job of asking our needs and then meeting them. I really appreciated the fact that each day of the trip was planned out and sent to us in great detail so that we knew where we needed to be and at what time. Not only did this help us effectively see the things that we wanted to see, but also allowed us to know when our leisure time was and plan accordingly. This was our first trip to Italy and since we were travelling with our three children, including a seven year old, we needed a trip that was well arranged and thus low stress. In 8 days, we saw Rome, Sorrento, and Florence. Having pre-arranged transportation to pick us up from airports, train stations, and hotels was perfect. We had the same drivers in each location so we felt very relaxed. We arranged for at least one tour or activity each day not lasting more that 4 hours. This gave us time afterwards to explore the cities at our leisure. We stayed in small hotels which were Bed and Breakfast places. It did take some time to understand the way these places work but overall, we enjoyed them. We had tour guides waiting for us when we toured places such as Pompeii and the heart of Florence.
We had a full day drive by private van of the Amalfi Coast from Positano to Ravello and back. It was a wonderful drive with beautiful views. Our opportunity to stop in Amalfi and see the Emerald Grotto was amazing. Also, our private tour of Pompeii was an educational highlight. In addition, in Florence a few of us had the opportunity to participate in a Italian cooking class (which was thoroughly enjoyed). Overall, the entire trip was very memorable for the entire family.
I think we would have taken a longer vacation, at least 2 weeks. I would have liked to spend more time in Florence in particular, and also possibly visit Venice and La Spezia.
