    Very well organised tour. No time was wasted in queues at popular sites. Special entrance to Vatican through the spiral staircases was very impressive.

    First the good: We saw a number of beautiful places in Italy. It's a truly beautiful country. Now the bad: The food portions were small, but I can't say i would have asked for more. If you like eating pasta mozzarella and tomatoes for 13 days straight,... Read more

    I had the best time! I would loved to have had more authentic Italian food as opposed to touristy foods. Loved where we visited and what we saw but could have spent more time in some places and less in others. Overall fantastic tour! Patrizia was fabulous!
