Ciao Fiorella and Franca!
Our trip was wonderful, thanks to all your assistance in coordinating and the great suggestions. We are just settling in at home, with jet lag, work etc.
As a special note, your selection of tour guides were especially personable, knowledgeable and insightful. We were really impressed with the guides from the Colosseum, Pompeii, and the Vatican. All possessed advanced degrees in archeology or history and had additional insights which made the tour very enriching. Even my boys, 19 and 24 were very impressed and appreciated all the information. A small feat for this younger generation! :)
