What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Italy means insistant relaxation for me and this holiday was no exception. You can't help but smile at the farm's dog's, Elvis, energy and we walked in places where we hardly saw anyone else.

What did you think of your group leader?

Sara was great and always checking to make sure that everyone was okay, helping where necessary as I needed on several occasions. I decided to have a rest day and she gave me a good recommendation for a local walk - the hand drawn map complete with the location of friendly dogs was very accurate.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

This is more than a stroll in the park and I wished I'd been a little better prepared and fitter before I went! But as this is a centre based holiday you can take a rest day if you want. Make sure you stop off in Castelnuovo for the best ice cream.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

Nothing gets past Mama at Braccicorti so make sure you eat all your dinner!!!
