This trip was simply amazing. It was a wonderful experience working with this company to plan our honeymoon. Our agent was responsive, professional, and even took the time to walk us through our huge packet of information and our agenda a week before leaving; she had some great suggestions for us in terms of restaurants and not-to-miss areas. All of our drivers were extremely friendly and helpful when taking us from place to place.
We visited Venice, Rome, and Sorrento. I can't pick a most memorable because they were all wonderful and unique experiences. In Venice, the private gondola ride is something I will cherish as well as the quiet time with my new husband when we had St. Mark's Square all to ourselves while it rained in the evening hours. Rome was a combination of a bustling city with beautiful landmarks on every corner. We enjoyed a Twilight Food Tour and an Underground Colosseum tour; both were fantastic as were the guides. Finally, our last few days were enjoyed in Sorrento and day trips to the Amalfi coast. While the coastal towns were definitely less busy in the winter, they were by no means shut down; in fact, this was the absolute best time of year for us personally to visit. We don't do well in large crowds and visiting the coast in February allowed us to explore all day long and enjoy the gorgeous scenery without being overwhelmed and swarmed with tourists.
I would take a different type of train from Venice to Rome. This particular ride was a bit chaotic and seemed to be more of a commuter rail than a Amtrak-style of transportation. Luckily was only a few hours ride, but would have been more enjoyable on a quieter option that offered more service options. The only other things I would suggest is to ensure you have a high-quality camera (pictures thru a phone don't do the landscape justice), and spend a bit of time learning some basic Italian phrases and researching their culture of food/dining so you know how to order and what is expected in some of the nicer restaurants. You won't regret taking the time to do this.
