Absolutely superb holiday, amazing memories for our family - Thank you to our travel company & Zicasso.
Everything went as planned from the itinerary; from hotel bookings with your train tickets, & activity vouchers on arrival, guided tours, guides were professional, passionate about their areas & tours were just fantastic & not least the drivers that took us from A to B on sometimes lengthy commutes.
Activity options are worth really thinking about with regards to what it is exactly you wish to experience on a given holiday; the choice can be overwhelming & so for our family, whilst the main tourist destinations were obvious choices to visit, which we did whilst in all destinations Venice, Florence, Roma, Bologna & Milan yet we felt we chose a few additional tours that would suit our passions; Murano glass factory, cooking school in Florence, hot air balloon ride (over Chianti hills, just a spectacular experience with a very professional company), Modena & Parma area for the cheese, balsamic vinegar & ham tours that were extremely interesting & of course the tasting - very well orchestrated tours, excellent. Milan was too short a visit but at the very least we had a few hours with a guide, as planned, who was wonderful & if in Milan the Scala Theatre is an absolute must see...!!
We would without question use Zicasso on our next trip as the knowledge & expertise delivers a stress-free, organised, professional service along with an agent a phone call away & regular communication to make sure the client is happy & all going to plan!
A real balance and so quite difficult to pick out the most enjoyable moments but probably the simple things; enjoying a guilt-free prosecco with breakfast, on the balcony at the hotel in Venice, over looking the Grand Canal, fabulous!
Birthday cake delivered to my room courtesy of the hotel in Rome, a very nice gesture, such a surprise!!
The balloon ride was spectacular & the picnic/breakfast provided after on a gorgeous early summer morning in the fields where we landed finished the experience
All local foods & wines & treats (ravioli & gelato especially). Small, local wine store in Venice, young assistant very knowledgeable, as per our preferences, great wines recommended!!
Bologna is a very understated town/city, amazing history interesting history; especially the university! The local deli stores selling fresh tortellini, hams, salads, cheeses...amazing!
Reliving the experience !!!
OK, as we had a relatively short trip, just short of 14 nights. Would plan for a 3 week visit next time; one tour a day; preferably in the afternoon & have one day for just the family to roam at leisure! This trip we had early wake-ups for train rides/tours, often 2 per day!
Other than this, wouldn't change a thing!
