Dear Alberto, everything was great! The honeymoon was amazing. The value of a 5-star hotel was immediately evident at Bellagio as they had no trouble helping me with one lost luggage bag. Florence was especially nice. Silvio was a very interesting man and we definitely had more fun adjusting our schedule to see Chianti and talking about the overview of Florence. It really seems to be a process of "making friends" rather a type of guide/tourist relationship - and we enjoyed it immensely. The guides really made the honeymoon quite special. The private cars also helped quite a bit in that our luggage was a little bulky - definitely not designed for Florentine streets. The Hotel de Ville actually had the largest rooms and their staff seemed more competent than at Verona but I suppose this is due to the increased tourism in Florence. We must plan our next trip to Italy I think we need to see Capri Rome Portofino. Luisella was great in Venice and we wish we had made more time to spend with her. All in all I think the private guided tours are what made this honeymoon much superior to what we saw other tourists doing. I would not imagine coming back to Italy without a guide - otherwise we would have been stuck with a much more superficial experience. I suppose this level of service and pride of work, which at the best hotels, makes the travelling unique. Well next time! No problem using us as a reference Thank you!!!!Sigmund and Felicia
