    Hotel in Amalfi was old with no amenities. Bathroom smelled. Back of bedspread had hair and black grease on it. Hotel Venecia was too small and the whole tour hated the small bathroom. Loved Lucca hotel, and also the Antica Tabaccaia in Tuscany.... Show more

    I enjoyed the tour of Italy…absolutely no stress. Tour guide kept us well informed of what was happening next. I liked having 2 nights in one location unfortunately that only happened a few times. Early mornings and some long days on the bus.

    There's too much packed in to some days for that group of 55-75 year olds. Exhaustion over enjoyment, for example, the full days in Rome and Venice. The Cinque Terre was ridiculous, it needs to commence much earlier and have some firm location... Show more

    Martina was great. She’s very personable, helpful, and everyone thought she was perfect for the job. Also, Dario, the bus driver, was very aware of our safety and we felt comfortable having him drive us.
