Our trip to Venice and Florence was fantastic! Before we left our travel agent interviewed us as to what our travel preferences are and our interests, tastes, budget, etc. Then we left the planning in her capable hands. We reviewed her initial itinerary and revised a few times. She was always available either by phone or email, despite our differences in time zones. Salvatore booked our flights and our agent did the rest, booking hotels, a cooking class, tour guides, drivers, etc. She even got us concert tickets. We wanted to have some free time to relax and explore on our own and we definitely had that. All of the tour guides were very professional & knowledgeable about the area, history and art history. Our day driving around Chianti with our guide was exceptionally beautiful. I can't decide whether it was prettier in Chianti or in Venice, but what a decision to have to make!
Venice is one of the most beautiful and romantic cities in the world, most memorable for us was our tour of Murano glass making and our gondola cruise. No, the gondolier didn't sing, but it was a very peaceful and beautiful experience. In Florence, who can choose between the beauty of renaissance art at the Uffizi gallery, the delicious food available just about everywhere (gelato anyone?) and a drive around the Chianti countryside? Lunch and wine tasting at Querceto de Castellina winery in Chianti were exquisite. We also loved the views from the minivan, especially of the walled village of Montefioralle. The cooking class we took and the arts/crafts tour were also really fun!
I wouldn't change a thing!
