“The trip was great ! For me, the best part of the trip was the cooking class and the private walks in Florence and Rome. Silvio and family were really friendly. We had a wonderful birthday lunch for Nicole. We baked orange and almond cake with chocolate coating instead of carrot and almond cake. It was nice cake for birthday. We totally enjoyed the private walks. The guides provided good level of details for the sites and art work that we saw.
We tried some of the recommended restaurants. We loved Golden View restaurant in Florence so much that we went back for a second dinner. Ice-creams were delicious but our favourite is the Giolitti in Rome. We found the Rome train station really confusing. We had trouble figuring out the platform for ride to Florence. Personally, I think sub-way in Rome was not such a good idea as it was really crowded. Taxi turned out to be a better option.
We like the hotel in Florence. It was really convenient and comfortable. While the hotel staff weren’t as helpful when compared to the hotel in Rome, we love the location, breakfast spread and the tastefully design hotel. Thanks for planning the trip”
