I'm planning a trip for a group of Italy travelers right now who have an uncommon request. They said:
We'll have 9 days in Italy and would like to see the main highlights of Rome, Florence and Venice.
As you can imagine, with a business called Italy Beyond the Obvious, I don't plan the standard Italy "triangle" very often, though pieces of it often make it into client itineraries. Below I've shared some examples of actual client requests – they aren't exactly off the wall, but certainly wouldn't be met by the cookie cutter Italy itinerary.
