Planning a trip in 2015 to Italy for my wife and I plus another couple. Our ages are late 60's and although I consider us to be in good physical condition, we are concerned about getting on/off trains with our luggage as well as getting to the hotel. We are getting to be rather seasoned tourists and we do pack what we consider as being light ..... that is, each of us has a 26" rolling suitcase.
Are there porters at the train stations that can help us if need be? Also, is getting a taxi (as well as directing them where we want to go) a difficult task? Once we get to the hotel, I am sure we can go through them for a transfer to our next destination. I am just worried about the next new city we find ourselves in.
Any help would be most appreciated.
