I use TripAdvisor extensively for every trip I plan. http://www.tripadvisor.com/Tourism-g187768-Italy-Vacations.html

When you’re in Florence, make sure that you see Michelangelo’s David. I usually find famous art to be over hyped and disappointing, but David lived up to its reputation!

We are doing our honeymoon in Italy, we did all the bookings ourselves. The TA’s I spoke to told me they didn’t really work with B&B’s. We also found that the places they suggested did not have the greatest reviews on TripAdvisor. We also saved about $500 by booking on our own

We did Italy for 15 days for our ‘moon….and our budget came in right around 5k.  I used trip advisor for absolutely everything, and also rented an apartment suggested by a friend for part of our stay.  I found the same thing with travel agents…they recommend hotels, not necessarily B&B’s, although I haven’t worked with a ton of travel agents.
