I have recently returned from a lovely trip to Italy! I traveled to Rome, Tuscany, and Florence with Europe Express – an excellent experience.
Our first hotel was the Rose Garden Palace. It was about a 20-minute walk to the Spanish steps and across the street from the US Embassy. The hotel was very nice and the rooms were a variety of size and configurations. There are a lot of areas in Rome that are not accessible by coach or car, so I would suggest a walking tour to familiarize yourself with the city. We did a two-hour walking tour and it took us to areas that were beautiful and clients won’t see unless they do a tour.
We then drove through Tuscany to Florence, and we stayed at the Villa Pitana. Originally a Benedictine monastery Pitiana’s beauty and charm open a door to the past. The villa still retains the articulated architecture of a millenary history, from the foundation as a fortified farm to the utilization as the Benedectine monastery and eventually to the conversion in nobleman elegant Villa in the IXth century – lately revised into a tourist residence. Architecture, decorations, and furniture maintain the memory of flowing of ages and styles.
Italy was an amazing trip and pictures just don’t do it justice. I would love to assist with your Italy adventure!
