This is good excellent way of seeing northern italy quickly.Make sure you take the upgrade and stay in Venice. Bring good walking shoes.
No cars, bikes, anything with wheels. Beautiful to explore.
Please, be repectful of your fellow travelers and be 5 min early to the bus, instead of 10 min late getting that last selfie picture.
Props to Carla for keeping us together.
Tip your guides well. They do bring great value to your vacation.

We thoroughly enjoyed the HASSLE FREE EXPERIENCE. The Assisi and Siena stops were well worth the time...beautiful. Florence was amazing. Then off to Balogna and Padova before Venice. Words can't describe!! Our tour director Lucy made everything memorable! Lover the tour! Be sure to book the Venice hotel on the island, it is right on the Grand Canal.

If I could give this trip more stars I would. AMAZING. Stefano was the BEST guide. The entire trip was very well organized and you really feel like you've seen as much as you can see in the time you have in the cities visited. There are four optional tours one to the art gallery with the statue of David, one to Pisa, a night tour in Venice, and a gondola ride which amount to about 130 Euros and they're all SO worth it and make the experience even more amazing. I also paid extra to stay right on the island in Venice which personally I think was a must and I never spend extra money on hotel accommodations. All the local guides were great and there was a perfect mixture of guided tours and free time. I was actually sad when the tour was over it was so amazing. I've done other tours with Carrani as well and they are a great company, a thousand percent recommended!

Loved the cities and churches on the tour. Hotel accomodations were good. Dinners in Venice were fabulous! The additional tours were worth the extra paid. We'd do it again.

This was a wonderful tour, if you want to see a lot of Italy in a short time. You go to so many places on the drive to Florence and Venice, it was great. Our tour guide was awesome she did a great job! Also it is well worth the money to get all the extras you will be so glad you did. Especially in Venice the upgraded room was awesome and the night tour was great. We felt like we were on a movie set. All the places you stop at is amazing! The Gondola ride was so much fun!!! This was one of my most favorite trips ever! Thanks so much to our tour guide and bus driver for getting us everywhere safely. Sherry
