Verdi Was Right


Young girls love Italy.  It sounds sooooo romantic to them.  My daughter's Girl Scout troop took a vote last night at their meeting on where they wanted to travel on their next big trip together.  Italy won, hands down.  "Rome, Florence, and Venice!" they chirped, and "oh, and Verona, to see the balcony where Romeo and Juliet stood!" then, "aahhhh . . . ," came the collective sigh from the room full of teenage girls.  

So it looks like Italy is on the agenda now for 2013.  Next the girls have to decide whether to go with a tour group or on their own.  Disagreements already ensued last night over the choice.  I've done these cities several times, but never on a tour.  Anyone with that experience have any suggestions?

  3. I lived in Italy a year ago. I spent a lot of time visiting Venice (five times) and Florence. If the girls are going in a group, I'd recommend a tour of wherever you're going. It's more structured, it'll ensure they see everything that's 'important' and it'll be super educational! It gets a little overwhelming to map it all out on your own, trust me! Also, I highly recommend Verona. And any other city you can get to - they are all amazing. Especially those within Tuscany!
