IMHO, the youngest I would bring on one of these Adventures would be 10. Not to say an 8 year old couldn't keep up, I just think to get the most out of the experience for the expense, 10 - 12 would be good. Our DD19 even said to us that she was happy we waited to do Europe until she was 18 to totally appreciate EVERYTHING ! ;-)

Hello! We'll be joining you just as the school year closes here in Canada. My well-travelled kids will be adding Italy to their adventures! Deven will be almost 8 and Nora 6 when we meet up in Rome. Looking forward to hearing from the rest of the group!

We are now booked for the August 18th trip.

Me - Cindy
DH - Don
DD - Jess (19)
DD - Sabrina (13)

We added two predays on to the trip and are going to pompeii for the day on the 17th. It's my youngest DD's dream to visit there. We had hoped to add a day at the end in Venice, but it was over $600. per room a night (we need 2 rooms) so over $1200.00 for one night.

We did the Germany trip 4 years ago and it was our favorite trip ever. We're already thinking of doing Scotland or Ireland next year, but we want to wait to hear how people like the Scotland trip before we make a decision.

Can't wait for August to get here!

Cindy - did you do a trip report on your Germany trip? We are now debating that one, too! Decisions, decisions!!! ;-)

Our Italian culinary training is proceeding on schedule. On our second visit to the Nouveau Italian place in Toronto everybody dipped their bread in oil without asking for butter, Italian lemon soda was consumed with great gusto, grilled calamari and beef carpaccio were both approved, and every last speck of the Margherita pizza was consumed. Now we just have to start on the distance walking portion of the program. In the 10 degree weather yesterday we only got about a half mile! Can't wait for June!
We have added two predays to the trip. We are planning to go to Ostia Antica and possibly Nettuno for the beach. We'll see how the jet lag is.

SingingMom, sorry I just saw your question. I didn't do a trip report, but if you have any questions, I would tell you our experience. We did that one 4 years ago, and I think it has changed a little. My girls were 8 and 14 at the time of the trip and they still talk about it.

I would love to do more with Adventures by Disney, but its so expensive (especially the airfare). We are hoping to do Scotland next year, but it all depends on how things go with finances this year. Plus we're also waiting to see if anything new comes out. lol

Thanks Cindy! We are awaiting some CM friends' schedules to help us make our choice! Germany, Scotland, Amalfi, Ireland......... Decisions, decisions!
