What's not to like?

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Its difficult to pick out a single moment, but I lean towards standing still as a stone watching the wild mountain sheep herds. But coming across our first fire salamanders was close.

What did you think of your group leader?

Sara is an absolute delight. She will go the extra mile to give you the best possible trip in any weather. She has a great enthusiasm which is infectious.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

When you ask the locals for a Doppio Espresso, they will query you...it's against local customs to drink string coffee after lunch...Just say 'Forte' in response.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

The typical free day is to travel to Lucca. I strongly recommend an alternative of organising a picnic lunch to enjoy at Lago Pontecosi before embarking on a valley walk back to Villeta with a side trip to cross the railway bridge. Ask Sara for a map.
