My husband and two teenage daughters just returned yesterday from a fabulous 2 week trip to Italy. Our travel company helped us put together a private trip plan that went smoothly, well-paced and worked so well for our family. We were travelling during the peak summer period and during the major Italian holiday (Ferragosta) and our travel agency helped us plan our intra-Italy transportation, accommodations and itinerary to maximize our enjoyment. They gave us a variety of exceptional optional activities - we wish we could have done them all. They were so patient and flexible as we worked together to finalize our trip plans. With the guidance and knowledge of our travel agency, we were able to realistically test out different routes, activities and hotel accommodations very quickly. They helped make sure we didn't over-book ourselves.
We spent the first few days in beautiful Tuscany, visiting Siena, San Gimignano and Florence followed by 3 days in Rome. We spent the latter part of our trip in lovely Positano along the Amalfi Coast. Our travel company arranged wonderful hotels, a combination of private transfers and trains to take us from northern Italy all the way through to the Amalfi Coast as well as specific private tours in Siena, Florence, Rome and Pompeii. We are not big fans of group tours - this private trip was just fabulous.
We loved the beautiful setting at our hotel in Tuscany and were so glad that this was our introduction to Italy.
We enjoyed the rooftop terrace at our hotel in Rome. At night, we could see St. Peters and the entire city all lit up. We were delighted to share the evening views, breezes and wine with several other families that we had the chance to meet and spend time with there at night.
We just loved Positano - the food, the views, the town, our hotel, the food, the food!!! Boating and swimming along the Amalfi Coast!
My husband and I could only come up with two things that we would do differently (we so loved our trip).
First, if we were to take the trip again, we would probably drive a bit more in and out of Tuscany. We would be more comfortable now doing that.
Second, my husband would remember to bring his bathing suit!
