Oh, this is my dream trip. I've never been overseas, but if I ever go it will be to Italy and Switzerland.
Can you guys offer specific names of places to stay? A "villa outside of Florence"...what is the name of it? Is it on the internet? How do you make reservations?
Also, please recommend restaurants in each city.
I have promised the kids that we will go on this trip in 4 years. I know it's a long way off but we know NOTHING about international travel. How to get around, currency exchange, finding places to stay, the language barriers. We need 4 years to plan.
