This trip was booked as a last minute vacation during a very busy season in Venice. Our travel company and this agent did a wonderful job of arranging our stay at a convenient, lovely botique hotel and arranging efficient, reliable and courteous-even luxurious airport transfers. We visited Venice for a week, choosing to explore in depth, rather than travel from city to city, and with our agent's help, our vacation was very rewarding.
Our agent booked two tours for us, respectively through the Basilica and the surrounding neighborhoods of San Marco and Castello, and a movable feast of wine tasting and Italian delicacies. Our tours were very small and personal, conducted by highly personable scholars in their fields; respectively an art historian and a sommelier; both wonderful.
Our agent demonstrated a wealth of knowledge about Italy, and used his knowledge and skill to help us book a personalized, very enjoyable vacation. It was especially reassuring to have our agent watching over us during our vacation to answer questions; whether about the logistics, restaurant recommendations or tipping. Everything he arranged for us turned out to be exactly as he had described and promised.
We will be recommending both Zicasso and this travel company to our interested friends and family.
As with most trips, we most enjoy and remember chance, lovely encounters with small, lesser-known but beautiful places and really nice, interesting people; whether on small-sized tours or while wandering along the less-traveled canals, away from the tourist hotspots. We enjoy meeting fellow tourists, especially gracious hotel or restaurant personnel, or tour guides, shopkeepers, docents and artisans. While San Marco and the Rialto are breathtaking, for us, Venice is most memorable and enjoyable on an intimate scale.
That experience is facilitated by having a well-planned vacation, backed by a knowledgeable and reliable company, such as this travel company. When logistics are well planned, we find ourselves unencumbered, more adventuresome and willing to take chances: free to lose ourselves wandering, rather than stick to the well tread path.
It was a great trip, I would change nothing.
