Don and I had the most incredible time in Italy thanks to the insightful way you planned our itinerary.
It is going to be one of the most memorable vacations I've ever taken. Each city was spectacular in its own right. We're so happy that we began our trip in Rome, followed by Florence, so we could sightsee the awe inspiring cathedrals, museums, and Colosseum. Our brains were overloaded with all the history, and art! ... Awesome ... Fantastic!
The hotels you arranged were a gem! All unique in their own special way. Loved, loved! We were greeted by the Managers and staff, as if we were celebrities from the States. That meant a lot to us. The Managers went out of their way to make certain we were happy, comfortable, and satisfied with their services. All gave us suggestions of places to see, and restaurants to dine at.
Whenever we arrived at each of the hotels, there was a bottle of wine or prosecco waiting for us. We ate and drank our way through Rome, Florence, Venice, Castelnuovo Berardenga, and Bellagio-Lake Como. The food was incredible! We have become big fans of Chianti wines.
The people were kind, and friendly. Even if we could not communicate, they somehow understood what we were trying to say, and helped us find our way around the city. We were especially touched when we were taken to our room at the Hotel Brunelleschi in Firenze, and waiting for us was a note from you, welcoming us. Thank you for that very special touch.
My most favorite places were Castelnuovo Berardenga, and Bellagio at Lake Como. I don't even have words to describe how incredibly beautiful these two areas are! After spending our time in Rome, Firenze, and Venice sightseeing, running around trying to see as much as we possibly could, these two cities gave us the time to just relax and enjoy the beauty of Italy. It was our "ahhh" moment. I told Don I want to go back to either one, or both, of these Cities, and stay at the same resorts. I'll keep my dream alive ...
Thank you, thank you, thank you, for making our vacation so very special special!
