Buongiorno Franca & Fiorella,
We are home now and still thinking of Italia! In fact, we have already tried to recreate the pasta dish we learned in Florence and have made our own bruschetta :) It's only been a few days, and we already miss Italia!
We were very pleased with our entire trip, and it was because of you both planning such a wonderful itinerary for us. It was one of the best trips we had! I am so glad that we found Cultural Italy through zicasso and would highly recommend you to friends and family.
Here are some of our highlights:
Frome Rome- We had an amazing time in Sorrento and really enjoyed Capri, Positano, Ravello, and Amalfi coast! We especially loved spending time on the boat to Capri and the gorgeous views from the boat and the Amalfi coast line. That was one of the best part of our trip! We had a great experience exploring the smallest country in the world (the Vatican City). We also had so much fun with the food tour and making pizza! :) The Colosseum at night was very interesting, and Rome is beautiful to see at night!
From Tuscany- We had a fabulous time in Tuscany! Among the many things, we loved the cooking class you booked for us...we also had a wonderful time exploring Siena, San Gimingnano, and Pisa. We were greeted with some special treats by the hotel here and in Florence!
From Sorrento- Had a wonderful walk through Pompeii with an awesome tour guide (Lily) and driver (Franco).
From Cinque Terre: We enjoyed a spectacular and very scenic hike from Monterosso to Vernazza with a very knowledgeable guide (Massimiliano)! Cinque Terre is a wonderful place!
From Venice: On our last night in Venice, we really enjoyed the concert you booked for us! We also had a great time with the tour. The guide was very knowledgeable, and we learned a lot of the interesting history of Venice and got to walk the less touristy paths. In short, our visit to Venice was meraviglioso!!
There is so much to do and so little time - as always the case when one is enjoying everything! Again, we cannot thank you enough for such an amazing itinerary! You two have been the best travel agents we have found!
We will always have beautiful memories of Italia from our lovely experience there. We are looking forward to returning to Italia for another visit in the future and would love for you to assist us in planning again.
Thank you again for everything! You are the best :)
Grazie ed arrivederci!
Loni & Mike
