I have been researching on this site for several years. We just returned from 3 weeks in Italy. I would like to thank EVERYONE for your support and kind responses to all of my inquiries. We started in Venice (yes, we were there for the Aqua Alta and walked 1/4 mile in the water), then to Riomaggiore in the Cinque Terre, Florence, then Rome. We contribute our easy transition into Italy to our detailed planning, maps and all of your help. Thank you again.
Ernest, It's great to hear that you had such a wonderful time in Italy! Now you can see what draws me back there every year. Are you planning your next trip yet? Cheers!
I don't think I contributed anything, but how nice to hear you had such a great trip and took the time to come on here and Thank everyone who did.
We are already planning our trip for 2014. Can't wait to return. It was everything we expected AND MORE.
