Better late than ever. We traveled to the country of Italy from June 7th to the 17th of this year and it was our best trip ever.
Our trip started from Toronto with a 11.45 pm flight out. We normally stay the night before at an airport hotel because most of our flights are early morning but this time we checked in early and tried out the international lounge at terminal 3. We paid $40.00CND each for 3 hours of all you can eat, drink ( be careful !!!) free newspapers, charging stations, TV's and a great view of the runway with some comfortable chairs.
The trip cost approximately $1300.00 per person and it was with Air Transat. This included the flight to Rome( with options plus) transfers from the airport to the hotel ( 3 hrs south of Rome) 9 nights accommodations and 2 meals a day (breakfast and dinner) It was about a 14 hour trip from Toronto to the hotel, but it was all worth it!!
The hotel itself is situated on the cliff side over looking the Mediterranean sea and the view is breath taking! There are a total of 6 levels of rooms in the hotel and all of them have a view of the water. The food is great and the service is out of this world!!! ( restaurant staff were excellent)
I honestly could go on for pages about everything from the people,the local food,the shopping e beach,the tours and so much more but if anyone is thinking of going to his area to simply ask me and I will let you know.
This was truly the best vacation I have ever taken and I will go back to this area and this hotel!!
