I am disappointed to report that the Faberge Egg display at the Vatican will be over by the time we get to Rome...

Everyone knows that egg season ends May 1st at the Vatican.

There are a few other things to look at though.

I found the travel blog below that has some useful information about traveling to Rome / Europe. Some of it seems obvious but could be used as a good check list.

This sounds like a great trip! My husband and I will be cruising around Italy in May, but the cruise ends in Venice on May 30. It looks like that's the date your group will arrive in Venice, so it's possible we may cross paths with some DISers if we spend our last day in Venice.

Thank you for posting this! I've bookmarked the site...I will referring to it a lot over the coming months. I really liked the detailed description on how to navigate the airport in Rome.

The link below is for the village where we will staying while in Tuscany. It looks beautiful. This is the part of the trip that I am most looking forward to (other than the bellinis, wine, and gelato).

The restaurants on the property sound wonderful. They offer both indoor and outdoor dining. The outdoor dining should provide for some very nice views!

It's not the pace of life than concerns me... it's the sudden stop at the end.

Dino and I just got back from the Viva Italia trip 3 weeks ago and I'm in prep mode on a trip report. Our DVD just arrived with all the guides pictures, so after a bit of organization, I hope to have something in writing soon

I do want to point out that you really only have one free meal while at the Villa and that's the evening after your day trip to Florence.

There were two bus times back to the villa, one at 4pm and the other at 7pm.
No one from our group left at 4:00, there is just too much to see and do and only having a few hours after lunch really isn't enough time.
So, thinking that most if not all of you will be heading back on the 7 pm bus, you won't arrive back until about 8:00 - 8:30pm
I think only 2 couples decided to have dinner in Artimino. Some had an early dinner right in Florence and many others just brought back something to eat, which is what we did.

We picked up a panini and pizza just before leaving. After we got back we got a beer from the bar, a plateful of "free" appetizers and we sat outside on the walkway area outside our room and had a delightful dinner.

If you have any questions about anythingor any part of the trip - Ask Away

Thank you for the information! I think on the Florence day I would most likely be on the later bus, I like the idea of picking up food before leaving to bring back.

Thanks for the handy site - Reading this got me to wonder and I guess I should know this - but I don't ... Is Italy part of the EU ? Is the money Euros or something else ?

Yes. I do believe that Italy is part of the EU and the money is Euros.

Italy is part of the EU and euros are the coin of the realm.

By the way....you know us.....we are not usually willing to just let things be.

We always like to tinker with our trips.

No details, no answers, nothing definite...but....you may have options.

There...was that cryptic enough?

Buono Serra!
