Our family of 5 is looking forward to a 10 day trip to Italy in June. This will be our first European vacation! We plan to fly into Rome, spend 4-5 days there, and travel via train to visit Venice and possibly Amalfi. My question is this...is it generally more cost effective to use a travel website such as Europeandestinations.com, or to book flights, hotels, and transportation independently? It's intuitive to think it would be less expensive to plan it myself, but it really looks like the package from the website is less. Anyone have experience with this? Thanks so much - I really value the input I receive!
