Thanks Maria, we had a memorable time.My wife really liked being picked up at the airports, train stations, and the hotels I thought getting and using a taxi in Rome was pretty easy and affordable. We really enjoyed the "welcome" bottles at each hotel As for the other "sparkling" bottles, we arrived at such a time we enjoyed them right away Although all the hotels were nice, the Florence room was amended the best and had the best view (of the river) The Ancient Rome and Vatican tours were the best quality. Cyndi enjoyed the Tuscany day the best because she got to rest on the bus. The other tours were fine and we went back to the museums and basilicas ourselves afterwards, like the Doge Palace"Julia" at the emergency number was a big help the very first day when we were delayed out of Houston (airplane broke...4 hours late--she alerted the driver) and out of Rome (train line difficulties--she alerted the driver again). if we know anyone visiting Italy, we will definitely recommend you. We enjoyed each detail that you arranged for us and felt like a VIP. Thank you for all your attention.
