What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

The scenery is just breathtaking, but if I had to choose a moment it was probably the walk around and into the crater on Vesuvius.

What did you think of your group leader?

Christine did pretty much all she could to make sure the group had a good week. Very friendly and open, Christine has made very good local connections which help in making things run smoothly. Christine uses her knowledge of the area and its people to enrich the walks. Excellent job! 

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Many people would probably find walking poles useful, whether for going up or down (or both), particularly the longer flights of steps.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

Having done a number of different types of trip where you're constantly moving from 1 base to another, I enjoyed having a single base here. The fact that the base was the excellent hotel Due Torri was a real bonus.
