The trip overall was wonderful. We had our 19 and 20-year old sons with us. That made it a bit more difficult to plan. We had a couple of problems with our hotel in Florence (the attitude of one of the managers and the owner's attitude was not great), but we still enjoyed that part of our trip and the hotel (palace) was still a very interesting place to stay. We did feel, however, that the travel company completely "missed the boat" with her planning when she booked us at the bed and breakfast, The Suites at Trastevere, our last 2 nights. It was not in an area of Rome that we wanted to be at all, we did not find it "charming" like she said we would, it was not convenient for us, the rooms were tiny, our television would not work, and it was not what we had in mind at all. We LOVED Siena and the hotel!!!!!!!
Touring ancient Rome, seeing Vatican City, and our 2 wine tours in Tuscany were the best parts of our trip. All of our tour guides were absolutely amazing. I cannot say enough good things about each of them!
We would stay a couple of days longer and go to an additional place and not spend 2 nights at the end of our stay in Rome. We also would spend one less day in Florence. We definitely would not stay at the Suites of Trastevere again. And we would try a different hotel in Florence -- where the owner appreciates his guests. We would have taken a car service from Siena to Rome instead of two trains -- there were 4 of us with 4 suitcases plus carry-on bags. There were very few seats left (it was a "compartment type" train) on the last train to Rome. It took us about 5-6 hours total to do the trip, whereas we were told the day before we took the train that it was only a 2-hour car ride to Rome......
