A lovely place

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Walking into Vesuvius - it was terribly windy, misty and quite chilly. But the special guide was a great enthusiast and it was great fun. Pompeii was huge and brilliant too. And swimming in the sea.

What did you think of your group leader?

He did the basics - he was pleasant, with excellent English and a warm, generous manner. We set off on time and he looked after the slower walkers very well. However from my experience on other tours the leader often provides interesting information on history, geology, natural history or whatever. Severio didn't seem have much to share.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

You don't need walking boots. Bring a swim suit. The Walk of the Gods and Pompeii was very busy and rather congested - as you might expect. Many of the walks are actually up and down steps - its like being on a step machine but uneven. Your calves might ache a bit. Avoid the wine on the table. The bottles are not much more expensive and hugely better quality.
