Venice Rialto Bridge view Gondola
Review for Family Vacation

Italy was amazing! We had so much fun. The history is evident everywhere you turn We were able to see so many facets of Italy: the Mediterranean coast, the busy city of Rome, the Tuscan city of Florence, and the canals of Venice! What diversity!We had a pizza making class in Sorrento that was one of the favorite things we did! We were treated like family. It was amazing!... Our visit to Pompeii was so educational. Our tour guide, Francesco, was so passionate about the history and telling us what life was like there Rome was an anomaly with its ancient ruins standing in the middle of a busy city!  The Coliseum, Roman forum, and of course the Vatican and St. Peter's Basilica were astounding! The Trevi fountain was under restoration, so there was no water in it. That was a little disappointing The Pantheon was beautiful too. Instead of Orvieto we stopped in Pienza. What a darling little town. The views of Tuscany were breathtaking. Florence had the Palazzo Vecchio where the statues were unreal!... Padua was a nice stop. Scrovegni Chapel and St. Anthony's Basilica were beautiful.Venice, how is it above water??? The islands were unique. Watching the glass blowing on Murano was so interesting. Burano's little fishing village feel was cool. Torcello was pretty, The gondola ride was fun, and taking water taxis everywhere was pretty exciting.I can't say enough about the tour guides or the drivers. They were so helpful, friendly, and informational! They wanted us to be happy and get the most out of our trip. We did not have one bad guide. They were so fun, always smiling, giving us an education as we went. We should have stayed longer!... Our travel was seamless. There were no plane delays or issues, everyone was there when they were supposed to be to pick us up with one exception in Rome. He apologized and notified the guide so she knew we would be late. All of the guides were on time as well. The nicest part of this vacation was having everything planned for us! Like you said, we did not have to think about anything except having fun! I can't imagine having taken this trip any other way! You made our vacation a memorable one! Thank you so much Tommaso!... I am happy to give you and your company a review. Be assured that it will be glowing! You do excellent work!
