We've opted for private tours with romeinlimo and sicilytour's. We basically have the Rome tour with Vatican, St Peters, Colosseum, Spanish steps, Trevi fountain, and Pantheon. Plus gelato. Livorno is Florence, shopping, San Gimignano, and a stop at a winery. Naples is a stop at Sansevero Chapel for a look at The Vieled Christ statue, on to Sorrento and some beach time them Pompeii and the Herculeneum. Then Messina is a trip all the way to the top of Etna then to a winery for lunch and tasting. All the other stops we are on our own.
What is the weather in Missouri like? I read temperatures during the day are low 70's up to 80 with night around 50. Then of course rain may be a factor.
