The trip was an extreme success and far exceeded our expectations. We are so happy to have personal drivers for all our excursions and trips to an from airports and train stations. It made everything so stress free. The only time we were frustrated were our "free" days and we had to make our own plans and decisions!
All the drivers and guides were very professional and extremely helpful and the itinerary was very well done and hit all the highlights.
The hotel in Sorrento was our favorite based upon the location and had the best breakfast. That is not to say we were not pleased with the hotels in Rome and Florence. The Florence hotel was a great location, right in the middle of everything. Our one minor complaint was the hotel in Rome was further away from all the attractions.
1. We were able to celebrate Holy Mass with the Pope in St. Peter's Square and it was the canonization of Mother Teresa. We were not aware this was going on until our guide in Rome told us. What an incredible experience.
2. On the day we spent in the wine country of Chianti, our drive suggested we have lunch and wine tasting at a winery he was familiar with, rather than spending 2-3 hours in San Gimignano. Lunch and the wine was incredible. We did end up spending about 45 minutes in San Gimignana, which was enough time.
The Food and Gelato!
1. Splurge and stay at the Cavalieri (Waldorf) Hotel in Rome. I know it is further from the action, but wow what a view and what a hotel.
2. On the day we toured the Vatican, St. Peter's Baslica was closed in the morning due to events related to the canonization. We ended up on being able to see it, and would make sure we did that next time.
