Hi all,

We had a great time thanks, saw and experienced lots, didn’t get to see all on our itinerary as we just didn’t want to be driving all day from point to point.

Was surprised by how much beautiful countryside there is.

The food – so amazing, lovely people other than some drivers when they get behind a wheel – funny!

Loved Rome so much, we were so happy to have our last night in Rome, we went back to a favourite restaurant and were not disappointed.

We think our next Italian adventure might be further south including Sicily, although we didn’t see Lucca and Cinque Terre so maybe back to see what we missed.???

Thank you again for the itinerary and support throughout the trip.

Hi Arlene,

Jim and I want to send a big thank you for making our Sicilian dream holiday come true.

Everything was perfect.

The hotels, the drivers, the wine tastings and excursions will all be unforgettable.

Laura was also great checking in with us daily to make sure everything was ok. And Jim was touched by your thoughtful birthday cake.

Thank you again Arlene for another fantastic Italian holiday!

Good morning Arlene

Thank you and your team for putting together such a great itinerary.

We had a great time.  It was so nice to meet Claudia in Sienna.  The wine and olive oil tasting was a lot of fun and Informative.
We had the most beautiful lunch and tour at LaValletta.  Most memorable.  We loved it and the tour of Gagliole winery.

We went to Casanova winery which Enzo , our driver, suggested.  It was great.  They also make balsamic vinegar.  They had truffles.  The lunch was great.  We sat outside and they had peacocks roaming.  It was another great place for lunch.

Also, in Sienna, we walked by a cooking school and  Claudia made a reservation for us.  We did that our last night in Sienna.  It Fonteguista scholars di cucina.  After making 3pastas, 3 sauces, a mushroom chicken dish and cookies.  We went to his restaurant and they served the food and wine.   It was a lot of fun.  They emailed us all the recipes.

Anyway, everything we did was memorable and a lot of fun.  Thanks again.
