Dear Franca & Fiorella:

We want to thank you very much for the wonderful 12 day vacation in Italy you put together for us. Having planned events for each day with local drivers, private tour guides and excursion drivers was a great experience. Everyone was on time, polite and extremely knowledgeable. Not only were we seeing great art and historical wonders, but we were learning a great deal more about these objects from the professional guides you arranged for us. The flavor of the country and local insights we received from the excursion drivers was enjoyable and very entertaining. These gentlemen are very good at what they do. 

The cooking class at the Cappella Sant’Andrea winery in San Gimignano was great and we just recreated the meal at our home for dinner tonight. Very tasty and a new way to cook eye round that I was unaware of. We were also taught a great deal about vineyards, grapes, fermenting and Olive Oil.  

What was great about Italy? The food, the people and the history of your wonderful country.    

We very much appreciated the champagne you arranged for at the birthday lunch for Ed Centanni and for our 40th wedding anniversary. That was a very nice thing to do.

The weather was terrible for the two days we were in Venice. We were able to see the sites and the city but unfortunately not under the best circumstances. 

Once again let me say,   La ringrazio molto. You both did a great job.

We will recommend you to anyone we know or meet that is planing a trip to see Italy.
