As we reflected on some memories of our experiences in Italy this fall, our arrival in Venice first came to mind. But, in fact, our experience with Paul and Luxo Italia began far earlier. After we first contacted them, we all went back and forth on preferences for the trip. Those discussions went on throughout the planning phase as they fine-tuned our itinerary. We were impressed, both by the fact that they listened to our requests, and their knowledge and experience.
But, eventually the actual trip happened. We arrived in Venice and were greeted by representatives of Luxo Italia in the jetway. We were whisked through customs and baggage and escorted to our water taxi for the stunning first-time visitors’ arrival in Venice and boating down the Grand Canal to our hotel, the Ca’Sagredo, a beautiful palace overlooking the canal. That night we had a spectacular dinner at the Gritti Palace, sitting next to the Canal and having the first taste of the seafood focused Venetian cuisine. It was a magical location and meal. We had wonderful tours and guides on land and water. Our weather was spectacular and we saw no signs of the recent acqua alta.
After several days in Venice, we were transported by limousine by Giovanni, who would be the driver for the rest of our trip. We arrived at Florence and the JK Place, a quite different hotel on the square of Santa Maria Novello. It was a wonderful place to stay with one of the warmest welcomes imaginable. Florence is a great city with breathtaking art and architecture. We were fortunate to have the same guide for most of Florence itself. A highlight was the monastery of San Marco, with each monastic cell being decorated with a work by Fra Angelico. Another treat was dinner at Buca Lapi, a venerable Florentine steak house, with Paul and his colleague, Andrea. Another example of the care they took of us was the attention to how things were going throughout, regularly checking in on how the day had gone, and reviewing the next morning’s agenda, if there was one.
Our final stop was in Montalcino, in the heart of Brunello country. We stayed at Castello Banfi il Borgo, a medieval castle with a wonderful restaurant and gracious staff. Several wine outings here, but we also took this opportunity to wind down the trip at this beautiful location.
