"I want to tell people is the this is the best site for trip planning I have found!!

The detailed information provided – such as how to get out of Florence with a rental car, or returning a rental car to Rome – where to get the acquabus from the Venice airport into the city – this was such valuable info I cannot tell you.  I printed off the instructions on taking a rental car to Rome airport – my husband, the driver, said “it couldn’t have been easier if the guy was sitting on the hood of my car telling me where to go!” ( not that Im a bad navigator, mind youJ)

This is fabulous, I have been telling everyone I meet that this is the best website for trip planning, so I want to let you at the site know this as well... 

Thanks a million – we just got back from a super trip to Italy and had very few missteps, with some great discoveries as well, thanks to great detailed info on your site."
