Enjoyed the recap of all your favorite moments! I tend to agree that your itinerary would likely have been slammed here, but this trip report is a good reminder that there is not one "right way" to travel. How amazing to come away with so many highlights and WOW moments!

I agree with the poster above. I don't ever want to go on a cruise ship, but I love your enthusiasm and reports of your time on land. It worked for you and your family and I have a feeling that next trip you'll all be in Italy exploring the country of your ancestors in more depth.

Once again I have to tell you, Shell, what a marvelous trip report this has been. A great pleasure to read, and an even greater pleasure to get to know your family.

Your enthusiasm is infectious, and your stamina is phenomenal!!

Did you post a link for your Rome apartment higher up in this report? I don't remember seeing it, but would love to have that link.

Many thanks, and best of luck to the whole family!

taconictraveler - thank you so much!

Here is the link to our apartment in Rome:

It was perfect for the 6 of us and I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again! If you have any questions about it, let me know!

Not having found your trip report and pictures until today I had the good fortune to go through from start to finish in one sitting - OK, one very LONG sitting! I so enjoyed all you covered in your descriptions of what you ate, what you saw, and how you did it. I've written down a lot of things to look at for our trip next year. Many thanks for the time and effort it took to put it all down for us to enjoy!!

You are a wonderful observer and a writer.. Your post dated Sep 9 on your WOW moments and places you would like to go back was the icing on the cake.. I feel very connected to your reflecting back and feeling nostalgic.. it is strange that how we feel connected to some places even though we are first time visitors and with any acquaintances at those places. A marvellous read.. Thanks

Alok_Mohata Thank you! I really enjoyed writing about our trip and sharing our experiences. I'm so glad to know it was well received! I'm thinking about putting it all together somehow into a travel memoir for my parents for Christmas. I think they'd really like that as a keepsake.

Why not print out the report that you wrote for us here, add a few pictures and put into a scrapbook? It would be a wonderful memory trip. You could do one for each of the kids and one for your parents as well as one for yourself!

It was a great trip enjoyed vicariously by so many of us here! Thanks again!

Dreaming of a Mediterranean Cruise-Land tour, I recalled this thread and read it from start to finish again. Your trip was and IS truly an inspiration. Hope to follow in (some of) your footsteps in the next year or two!
