Florence Chocolate and Wine Tasting

Florence, Italy

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review

Lovely experience, fantastic chocolates and a nice dessert wine. It was about 25 min long and not 90 min as the voucher listed. The "tour guide" didn't speak enough English, which made it a bit uncomfortable. I don;t think she works for the Chocolatier since she was reading from notes. Although Barbara never introduced herself(she was wearing a necklace w/ her name on it) She was quite pleasant and did a good job. I think for the money this could have been done by the shop girl behind the counter.
There wasn't a washroom which was an issue after spending a few hours walking thourgh Florence and having drinks. They directed us around the street to a pizza shoppe.

Skip the Line: Florence Accademia Gallery Tickets

Florence, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

I would HIGHLY recommend this "Skip the line". There were terribly long lines as well as street vendors crowding the narrow street.
However, our voucher said to meet the rep with a Yellow flag, it was a yellow bicycle. It also said skip security which you cannot do.

Capri Day Trip with Lunch from Naples

Naples, Italy

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

What a beautiful place! If I were to return to Capri, I would spend a night to have full day there. The ferry ride to and from were great, 40 min each way and quite scenic. Pepe our guide was a lovely man who had fabulous knowldege of the island. The bus to the top(Anacapri) was good, tiny winding road on the edge of a cliff. We had 1 hour to free time there then lunch. Lunch was a little odd, no menu,a waiter asked "bolognese or pomadoro". after the pasta was served they asked "meat or fish". basically you had to guess what type of fish you were eating. The wait staff were very nice but it was very rushed since they were very busy and we were on a schedule. After lunch back on the bus,( you don't want to be a large person, you'll take up 2 seats) bus down to Capri where there is Madison Ave shopping, as well as cafes, gelato shoppes. A lovely cliff walk down to the small marina it would take about an hour down and up, we couldn't do it since time was too short. BTW, NO BLUE GROTTO!! 1/2 of our tour paid EXTRA got on another boat,and 10min into the ride they informed us that the water was too rough and we can't go to the grotto, however small boats were all moored and people were going into the grotto. Save your $ and take one of the smaller boats, they'll get you in. After a boat ride around the island, our tour ended and back on the ferry to port of Naples. A lovely day just a bit rushed.
