Trip Report Rome, Orvieto, and Florence with Eight Women

Jump to last reply

I planned this trip for many months. Eight women traveling to Italy-- Rome, Orvieto, and Florence-- for a total of 10 days (including travel days) May 9-19, 2013.

I spent hours on the internet pouring over hundreds (thousands?) of reviews for accommodations that would meet all of my requirements; 1) location, 2)free breakfast, 3)free wifi, 4)inexpensive, 5)all twin beds, 6)triple rooms available, 7)ensuite bathrooms. First I read the negative reviews, then I read the positive reviews, then I started sending inquiries into availability and rates.

Here were my selections:

Rome-La Papessa
Orvieto-CasaSelita
Florence- Hotel Europa
Rome-Tre Moschettieri (for those flying back out of Rome)

The plan was to fly to JFK on Delta, connecting with Alitalia to Rome. I had everyone’s confirmation numbers, and had carefully selected the overseas seats based on their preferences. But you know what they say, “We plan, God laughs”.
