We have returned from our wonderful trip to Italy and are just getting over some jet lag. I think there are many highlights of our trip but the two that stand out the most would be our time in Sestri Levanti and Bellagio. Cultural Italy did a marvelous job of steering us to Sestri and the Hotel Dei Castelli was absolutely phenomenal. The view of the Bay of Silence out our window was just gorgeous (see attached photo). Our hikes around the area turned up beautiful vistas at every turn. Our time in Bellagio was just as spectacular and, once again, the Hotel Metrople was the perfect choice. It was right on Lake Como and in the heart of Bellagio where everything was easily accessible. We fell in love with the town of Varenna, just north of Bellagio and would go back in a heartbeat. So quaint and lovely! All of our transfers were perfect and the european trains were a wonderful way to see the countryside. It was a great, secure feeling to know that all the little details had been so carefully put together. Everything planned went like clockwork. We would choose Cultural Italy to plan any future trips. Our next adventure will be a river trip either up the Rhine or the Danube and after that probably back to Europe.
Thank you for a wonderful trip!
