Hi all, hope you all are well; you've been sooo helpful to me in the past, though I had to cancel my 2020 Oct trip....now hoping/planning to go in Oct 2022 before travel insurance expires...planning to make hotel reservations where we had them before, but...big question: flights! I really want to go business class ( I know, way expensive, but when my husband & I went in 2019 we got BC for $1800 each which was a steal...don't know how that happened, but I am looking into it!). Having had BC once, there is no turning back!!!
So...thoughts/recommendations? How is the new ITA airline? Is it reliable? I've gone to a few sites, not much under $3200 which is (gulp) barely acceptable, but...plan is to go in/out of Rome (though I am open) after doing Florence, Tuscany/agriturismo outside Volterra recommended by a friend who knows the owners, for 2-3 nights, cannot rent a car, Siena (via train?), then really want to get to Sorrento/Amalfi, stay in Sorrento, and do day tours to Capri, Amalfi, etc. thought about doing RS tour of Florence/Rome/Tuscany, and then adding 2-3 days at the end for Capri, etc., then train back to Rome for departure. Honestly, NOT unlimited funds! would love to do Venice but I don't think there's enough time with 21 days.
My travel companion is my sister, 72 yrs old with weak knees, no cane yet but we cannot walk for miles and miles....she has never been, will never go unless I take her, and I've been a few times...it's her dream trip...(Actually she is my "womb mate" since we are identical twins!)
Thanks all! stay safe
