My Review

Our visits to the Venetian countryside on our very sunny Sunday allowed my wife and I to experience some of the tranquil beauty of the area. After an excellent lunch at one of the local ristorantes we were able to sample some the excellent Prosecco wines, one of my favourites. An excellent day!

Murano, Burano and Torcello Half-Day Sightseeing Tour

Venice, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Outstanding!
Far too brief for such tranquil settings. An excellent introduction... But if you like it that much, it's easy to simply take the vaporettos (water bus) to these islands on you own later to take more time to explore. It's well worth the time away from the crowds.

My Review

This was our introduction to Venice just two hours after we arrived. The immediate insight and the introduction to this area which is so full of character with its winding back streets, campos and canals to it's grand palaces along the Grand Canal was fascinating and entertaining. The personal insight from our excellent guide made this a memorable experience.

What can be better than a quiet boat ride on the Arno embraced in the tranquility of the Florence shoreline in the evening with a glass of Prosecco... with you wife of course?

Pisa and the Leaning Tower Half-Day Trip from Florence

Florence, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Pisa...
That quirky characteristic of a exquisitely beautiful bell tower that just happened to be leaning a little too much. It's one of the most famous landmarks (man-made) in the world. It's worth the visit in my opinion because of the humanity of it all. The beauty is sometimes in the flaws and accidents of time. It's what makes it tangible. Go to the top of the tower for a breathtaking view all around. This town once rivaled the likes Florence and Genoa for good reason. And an excellent guide makes sense of it all too.

3-Day Italy Trip: Naples, Pompeii, Sorrento and Capri

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

The weather finally warmed up just in time for our 3-day excursion. Pompeii is an incredible place to visit. The sheer size of the sight, the missing top of the volcano of Vesuvius makes it comprehensible to imagine the scope of devastation caused by the eruption.
What can I say about Sorrento. The view from the terrace of our hotel of Sorrento and the Bay of Naples at dinner or at breakfast in the morning makes this visit worthwhile.
Capri... The Blue Grotto is a must to visit but its also worth the ride to the top of Anacapri on a chair-lift.
