It's hard to meet the travel requirements for a great group trip when you have a mix of seasoned travelers along with the" first timers", but Azzura and Christian do a phenomenal job of creating a programmed trip that meets all those needs. They really know their history, and can engage in conversation over everything from what kind of soil grows the best grapes, to art and anything else you may wish to ask them about. Comfortable vans took us from place to place, and the hotels they chose in Rome, Siena, Florence, and Venice were clean, comfortable and in safe areas near shopping venues and great restaurants! This 12 day adventure took us to small medieval towns where we wandered for 2 or 3 hours, possibly having lunch or a snack, and then onto the next lovely Tuscan town or city. The highlight of the trip was the day long visit to the "Altiera Winery" (near Greve) where Samuella and Paulo Serra hosted a cooking experience where we learned how to make pasta, pizza,and ravioli....all while enjoying Altiero's wine, olive oil, and cheese offerings!
As travelers, we were expected to pay for our own meals and room taxes, but each hotel we stayed in served a huge choice of breakfast foods, so some days we simply stopped for a cappacino or a thick hot chocolate, and skipped lunch all together!
