Overall, we had a wonderful time in Italy. We spent a week in Italy: Rome, Florence, and Venice. It was our first time in Italy, and we had a wonderful time. I would give it 4.5 stars out of 5 only because there were a few minor confusion. Otherwise, I highly recommend Italy luxury travel.
Everyone in my family uniformly loved our truffle hunting trip. The experience was unforgettable and simply fabulous. Mora, the brilliant truffle hunting dog, was amazing! After the trip, our home made meal with truffle was also fantastic. Our time in Venice touring the city was also wonderful. Our tour guide was wonderful and by far our favorite guide. She was very resourceful and helpful throughout our guide (giving us enough time for pictures, telling us insightful inside stories, explaining the local culture etc).
First, we were very stressed out and upset when our water taxi did not dropped us off at our hotel when we first arrived at 9:30pm in Venice. We were exhausted and tired after a full day. With terrible signal (no real google map help with the Italian Sim card we received), we were practically lost within the maze of alleys. After calling the agency and the hotel many times, it took at least 1.5 hrs if not more to eventually find the hotel. I think this was by far the worst part of the trip. My parents were extremely worried and subsequently were afraid to explore Venice in fear of getting lost again. The water-taxi thought we were staying in another hotel that had a similar name as the one we were staying at. If I were to take the trip again, I would probably print out map of venice instead of relying on awful internet signals. We also didn't like our guide in Florence. She walked quickly through through the city without much explanations. It was as if she was too tired and didn't care enough to pay extra attention to us. We have to chase her down repeated to tell her to slow down, give us time to take pictures, and answer our questions. Florence is a lovely place, and we would enjoy it much more if we had a better guide.
