Mixed review

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Visiting the basilica of San Francesco d'Assisi. Watching the sunset over Florence drinking wine. I also found looking over Lake Como surprisingly moving.There were many great moments during this trip.

What did you think of your group leader?

The trip leader was excellent. She made the holiday and it was obvious that she loved sharing her knowledge. Her enthusiasm was infectious.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Take a lot of spending money as the cost of the trip generally only covers hotels, breakfasts and trains. It is hard work getting on the trains so make sure you can easily lift your luggage above your head!! My arm muscles certainly developed after two weeks lifting my luggage onto racks above my head.
