We had an amazing trip in Italy all thanks to the awesome itinerary created by our travel agents at this company. From the time of initial contact through Zicasso and all the way to when we returned home, they were available and in communication with us. Every detail of our trip was planned for us according to what we liked and every aspect thoroughly explained. We really enjoyed the entire trip and did not run into any issues. Any hiccups we encountered (which was minimal) was due to our own fault.
This was an anniversary trip for us, and we really appreciated that the travel company was so meticulous in planning our itinerary and making it special every step of the way. The hotels they booked were all good and in centralized locations. Our agents must have told them it was our anniversary because each of them treated us to champagne/wine upon our arrival. Also, the transfers to each location were very well coordinated. We were provided a personal guide to walk us through various parts, directions were given to us in advance when it was simple to take a taxi, and a personal driver was arranged for us for longer and more complicated transfers from one location to another. We took the train in a few of the transfers, and our agents made sure the transition was very smooth. All of the guides were very knowledgeable and great to have in various parts of our tour. We especially enjoyed the personal tour guide in Cinque Terre and in Pompeii. Overall, we are very pleased with our trip and had an amazing time in Italy all because of our agents! This company really personalized the trip for us according to our interests, and we loved it! We are so glad we found them via Zicasso!
We loved that our itinerary was pre-planned and clearly explained with all documents provided in advance so we knew what to expect. We also like that it was personalized for us and not a "group tour" and were pleased to have some time to ourselves in between activities. Every place in Italy we visited had its own unique aspect, and we loved each part. It's hard to pinpoint just one thing but a few things we enjoyed were the food, wine, and the Italian people were so warm and friendly! The few things that was most memorable and enjoyable for us (and we are loathe to pinpoint just a few because all were spectacular in its own way) are:
We had a wonderful time on our first night in Italy - enjoying a very relaxing and romantic gondola ride in Venice. Venice is a very special place, and I really enjoyed wondering about and getting lost in such a unique city.
We especially enjoyed spending time on the boat to the Island of Capri - we thought Capri was very beautiful but we would not have minded even if all we did was spend time on the private boat all day!!
We also enjoyed the hike to Vernazza while staying in Monterosso. We had a lot of very delicious seafood in Cinque Terre, and two of the favorite places we ate in Italy were in Monterosso!
We loved loved loved Tuscany! The food was so good! Our favorite part of our trip in that region was the organic farm lunch and wine tasting ...the vineyards and olive trees and lush hillside landscape were so beautiful!
And of course, all the art history in Florence was just amazing! And of course, Rome - there was so much history everywhere and it was literally the culmination of our trip - it seemed like you could get a little piece of all the different regions in Italy just in Rome!
It was our first time in Italy, and we would not have done anything differently (except extend the length of our trip)!
