Alessia, We are home, as Laura emailed to you. The trip was beyond our expectations, thanks to you. Your planning was great. The Villa met all of our needs. Very comfortable, and unique for the size of our party. Marco was great. A very nice man. I would use him again, if I returned to that area. The hotel in Venice, as we told you was lovely. Met our needs, plus. Cinzia and her staff was superb. She cooked Italian meals that were beyond belief. All four of them. The restaurants you chose were outstanding. Christoff and Camella, our guides were both excellent. My favorite small town was Pienza, Siena was superb because of the preparations for the horse race. Enormous excitement generated everywhere. Florence was better for me the second time, because my grandson was able to show us where he had been, as a student. Ruth found a beautiful leather jacket in a store over the Arno, in South Florence. All in all, our trip was beyond expectations. I suggest you include Pisa and Lucca for others taking our trip.
