My husband & I were thinking of hiring a taxi or private driver/guide to take us from Vicenza through Padua (where we want to go to the Giotto chapel) and then through to Venice, possibly making a stop at one of Palladio's villa's nearby. This would be for the duration of one day or less. We would take the train and make this journey by train except that we have luggage with us and don't think lugging this around is a good idea and I'm not sure about being able to check it at the train stations. How do we go about finding a driver? How much should it cost to do this? Is there a better way of doing what we are hoping to see? Is it possible to do this within the period of a day comfortably? Any advice on the matter?
Many thanks in advance
