Venice, Florence, Positano, Rome Tour Recommendations

Jump to last reply

Hello Fellow Fodors - My wife and I are wrapping up our booking for our trip to Italy (first leg is Paris) for mid-September (just over a month away). We have flights and hotels all booked. We are now looking at tours and transfers.

I've heard from "you can see all attractions without any tour guide" to "it's better to have a tour guide for certain attractions to get a better understanding on the history, etc.." We are interested in knowing about the history of attractions that are worth knowing about (For example: I've heard and seen the David in pictures, but don't know the history and I heard taking part in guided tour for that is worth it, but I will wait for your recommendations) Below are destinations and days/nights we are staying.

******early flight from Paris to Venice******
Venice - 2 Full Days (2 nights) ******transfer to Florence******
Florence - 2 Days (2 nights) ******transfer to Positano******
Positano - 3 Days (3 nights, would like to go to Pompeii, etc...******transfer to Rome******
Rome - 4 Days (4 nights)

My wife and I have never been to any of the destinations in Italy mentioned above, so we're looking for recommendations. With that said, what tours/guided tours/audio tours are worth taking part in? If you know the prices and how long the tours are, we would appreciate that information as well, as well as any other information you'd like to provide.

Thank you all! We look forward to your recommendations.
