Destination of Choice: Italy
Yes we had quite a bit of an experience. It was really crowded in Italy due to the summer vacation and Justin got pickpocketed on the first day when we wanted to go for dinner. Fortunately, our hotel concierge told us the next morning that someone found Justin’s wallet. The rest of the trip was quite misfortune-free. We deviated from the itinerary and also skipped some destinations in consideration of weather, time and strength. But the whole book is really useful for our reference.
The 2 tours that we took, Vatican and Da Vinci last supper, were really good. You can miss all the other museums but these 2 tours are a must-go.
Lastly, we did most of our shopping in Rome (mostly catholic ornaments for display) and Florence (leather!). So you can advise clients to save their shopping budget for these places.
