We had a fantastic time in Italy and, thanks to Zicasso, everything was already planned out for us. We went at the end of August when it was still pretty hot (90 degrees F). We had private transfers from the airports and train stations to the hotels. We also had a small token of appreciation in our hotel room when we got there from Zicasso (bottle of wine or prosecco). I like booking my own trips as I feel I have a good grasp of travel sites; however, because I had not been to Italy before and not knowing the 'right' areas to stay, it was helpful to leverage Zicasso's experience to find these hidden gems. The hotels were right in the middle of all of the excitement. They were close to the major dining areas of the city in addition to walking distance to major landmarks we wanted to see and experience. We had private tour guides everywhere who spoke very good English and were very informative. It was nice to avoid the big group tours. Usually, they could get you into a private entrance or skip a long line which was very helpful and saved us time (not to mention the heat).
We went to Venice, Florence, Rome, and Sorrento. Our favorite was Venice and Sorrento. We did private tours in all of the cities but our favorites were the private gondola ride in Venice, the private boat tour of the Isle of Capri (must see) and our private tour of Pompeii.
There is so much to see and we really tried to fit everything into our 11 day trip but there's only so much time! We wish we had more time. Also, now that we've seen Rome, and though it's a beautiful city, it really was a bit crowded for our taste so next time we'll spend more time in Venice and Sorrento. We also wish we had time to go see the Amalfi coast and Positano. So, we'll have to come back. Can't wait!!
