just got back and were both a little tired. I have to say this was my first trip to Europe but not out first guided tour. We had a lot of fun and met some new friends from all over the world, our group really bonded. No way can you see all the cool stuff in Rome in just 7 days but we took in a lot, hotel was great, food was good and what can I say, our guide did a great job. After our farewell dinner she got a standing ovation from all of us. We hated to leave but had one last day to burn. After spending out last night in Sperlonga and returning to the Rome hotel for out last night, it was like coming back home after being away. We hope our next tour, where ever it is, well be just as good, Ricks company and his employees have set the bar a little high.
I took the RS Venice, Florence & Rome tour in May of this year and had an awesome experience. The tours combine good food, great guides, and a educational experience that allows you to appreciate the culture to it's fullest. We've already signed up for the Greece tour next spring!

Nope, you can't but I'm really glad that you had a fabulous time, and now you have a reason to go back, eh?
Glad to hear you had a great time. I am signed up for 7 Days in Rome in March 2017!
Also, I am gong on the 17 Days in Italy tour leaving Oct 6 for the Oct 9 - 25 tour. I am excited!
Woof: Sounds like you had a great time.
Donald: We're taking the Venice, Florence and Rome trip next May. I'm curious what kind of weather you had. We're going May 19-28.
The question about weather reflects my concern too. We plan to take the 13 day Italy My Way tour next year--starting in Venice on April 23, then Lake Como, Cinque Terra, Florence, Assisi, and finally Rome around May 12 or so. Any tips?
@stoutfella - If you go to AccuWeather's web site (ex http://www.accuweather.com/en/it/rome/213490/month/213490?monyr=5/01/2016#), you can get historical and climatological data for almost any city in the world. While the climatological data is an average of the last 25 (or so) years, it'll give you a pretty good idea what to expect.
@abiddle - In my opinion, too many stops in too short of time. To me, you'll spend all your time unpacking/re-packing, checking-in/checking-out and waiting for transportation.
