Hi Roby, I apologize for my delayed reply, it has been very busy for me at work since returning back from vacation. We had a fabulous time in Italy! We both agreed it was probably our favorite vacation yet. All the hotel stays and tours went very smoothly. The hotel in Rome was clean with a large room. The front desk staff provided excellent customer service and were always available to help us with directions to anywhere we wanted to go by walking, public transportation or taxi. Fortunately the central location was such that we never really needed to use a taxi! All of our tours through "Dark Rome" were well organized with very knowledgeable tour guides who spoke excellent English. We particularly enjoyed the tour of the Borghese Gallery and gardens, even my husband who doesn't usually enjoy art galleries! The guide made it very interesting. All of our private transfers also went smoothly. The driver who provided our Jewels of the Amalfi Coast day trip and transfers to and from Sorrento was an excellent tour guide! He went out of his way to tell us everything we wanted to know about the region and took us on special stops to see unexpected and interesting things. Our hotel in Sorrento was certainly my husband's favorite thing. It was gorgeous with a private balcony and amazing view. It also had a pool and we were able to sunbathe one day. It was about a 30 minute walk from the center of Sorrento, and there were shuttles every hour. This worked well for us because we were looking for relaxation and therefore enjoyed being away from the town's center, but for vacationers wanting to stay out late at night or be right in town they might find it too far from the center of the action. I have not uploaded my pictures to the computer yet but I will send some to you when I have them on the computer. It was a fantastic trip and we were very lucky to find you to put it together for us on such short notice!
