I think it is going to be a great trip! However, I didn't expect that it would take me so much time researching hotels for Rome and Venice. Plus, you then have to decide which tours to take. I signed up for some other private tours on another board. I also signed up for some of the ship tours. Additionally, I plan on trying a couple DIY stops. I still don't know exactly what we are doing in Rome and Venice.
How are your plans going? BTW, my private tour is now full.
