What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Reaching the summit of Pania del Croce with the wonderful views from the ridge. Braccorti itself, do not think I would ever tire of the view from the pool. Lucca is also well worth a visit on the free day.

What did you think of your group leader?

Liz was a really great leader, calm, professional, friendly, helpful and encouraging.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Walking poles are essential.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

The farmhouse is lovely and local family extend a warm welcome, particularly Mama. However, I was slightly disappointed at times with food. It was generous and plentiful but more fresh fruit and salads would be welcome.
