Our whole trip was absolutely fantastic!! Our agent from this Italy travel company did a really excellent job planning the trip and working with us to customize it to the needs of our family. We travelled for 10 days with our 4 adult children ages 24,21,20 and 18 and covered Rome, Florence, a day trip to Venice, Tuscany and Positano with stops to Sienna, Pompeii and San Gigigmano. We had a family cooking class in Tuscany along with a beautiful guided hike to a castle. Our agent arranged all transportation, tours, hotels and also helped us with restaurant guidance and reservations. Anytime there was a glitch he was right on the phone fixing the problem. He gave us a cell phone and we could reach him day or night. His hotel choices were especially great and exactly what we wanted. We had requested unique boutique hotels that were reasonably priced however high quality. We were extremely happy with the whole trip and travel experience which was not easy to accomplish considering the complexity of our group! This is by far the best family vacation we have ever had and we are very grateful to have had the guidance and knowledge that our agent and his company offered.
This is hard to answer as almost every day was completely memorable in its own way. Highlights were:
The Vatican tour - our guide was especially great and took us to a truly special lunch after
The family cooking class was so fun - it provided a great family bonding experience, and was a real immersion in the food culture of Italy. Sharing the meal at our Tuscan Country home together was very special.
The guided hike was really fun and unique. It was great for our adult children as by that time we had seen so many Hes and paintings etc. that it was perfect to experience a whole different part of Italy. Our hiking guide was a terrific guy and an unbelievably knowledgable naturalist. He even took us to his family home after the hike and his wife and he had prepared a beautiful lunch. We really enjoyed starting the trip touring the big cities and then moving to the relaxing environment of Tuscany and ending the trip in spectacular Positano.
We would have added two more days so that we had another day in Florence and another day in Positano. That would have made the trip perfect and that would have been good advice to receive. If not, we would have eliminated the day in Sienna and stayed in Florence. It was all just a little too much.
