Hi Jeannie,Wonderful trip, Rome was beautiful & the Hotel was more than we expected. Location was close to all the main tourist sites & attractions. We saw everything we wanted to see and then some. Please tell Tommaso of Trips2Italy that his choice of hotel & transportation arrangements in Rome were great Now, about Hotel in Venice, location on the Grand Canal was exciting, the rooms were above our expectations, with an excellent hotel staff, especially Ms. Francesca... She gave us good advice about using local transportation around the city, recommended some fine dining areas, answered all our questions, made sure we were comfortable and without a doubt, helped us have a wonderful time in Venice. Bravo ....We would (and I am sure that Mr. & Mrs. B. would also agree) like to express our gratitude &appreciation to both you personally and also Mr. Tommaso for ensuring that what we had hoped would be a great trip, turned out to be a FANTASTIC one. We will be recommending yourself, Trips2Italy & both Hotels to our friends for future travel. Also I will be making an entry on Tripadvisor.com recommending Trips2Italy & both Hotels. Once again, THANKS !!
