" Hello Maria! Wow? We had an AMAZING time in Italy and it exceeded every expectation we could have had. We could not get enough of the food and the wine was wonderful. We tried new foods and continually were amazed and the atmosphere everywhere we went just made us feel so comfortable and truly happy to the deepest parts of our soul. Rome: The Hotel you reserved for us was perfect! LOVED the location, our room was magnificent, the staff was wonderful The tour operator you selected for our tour of the Vatican was excellent. The Vatican was a wonderful tour. Coliseum also was a wonderful tour and very busy. Tour guide for that one not as personable as the one for Vatican. But, that was a larger group, though.Florence: Never having been to a train station, we did not know what to expect. It is much easier than we were expecting once we figured it out Room was very nice and the small hotel had such great personal service and so friendly Guest should be prepared for the street noise, with such a fantastic location, there is a lot of activity out there! We loved it! Florence has amazing architecture and we loved all the various plazas. Also wonderful shopping! Venice: Venice was our favorite. Getting to hotel was tricky since it was a small door down a small alley and those alleys are busy! This is a city unlike anything we had ever seen in our lives Gondola ride, unfortunately, was the only ill weather we experienced through our entire trip. It rained at that time and was kind of cold, but our guide was fun and the ride was very pleasant. You planned our trips and travel beautifully and our hotel accommodations and locations were perfect. Your advice you provided for us was spot-on and our experience with Trips2Italy was first rate. We encountered no issues or problems our entire trip. Everyone, seriously, everyone we came into contact with and met along our journey was so friendly and so wonderful and nothing about our trip was in any way unpleasant (gypsies were annoying at train station, but thats it?). It was a vacation of a lifetime and we had the time of our lives. Thank You for all of your help in setting it up for us!!!"
