Use Travel Agent? First Time Traveler

Jump to last reply

I've never traveled outside US before. Want to plan a trip to Italy for this summer and I'm a little overwhelmed with the travel books - so many details and I'm afraid of screwing this up. I'm a little dyslexic and have been known to make mistakes on dates. It's for our family of 3 and it is what is is - neither of them are really helping much at all. I work a a lot and the research is feeling like another full time job which I don't have enough time for. What I want is piece of mind and organization but at a fair price - the one agency I called, Giselles, seems overly pricey to me. Does anyone have recommendation of reputable travel agency that does a great job with Italy? I live in Northern CA and so far have not found an agency specializing in Italy - at least not one that handles all the bookings.

We are 2 adults 50ish and 1 teenage boy (17). We want to spend 12-14 days between Venice, Florence and Rome seeing major sites and doing side trips to nearby towns. My friends told me to book Airbnb and do this all on my own but I'm nervous of something going wrong an being stuck.
Appreciate any travel agency insight/referral and any other guidance.
