Beautiful introduction to Italy   0 , VIC, Australia, Sep 2023
This was a great experience; made all the better by the super helpful tour director Ursula Pinna. She catered for everyone with patience and good humour. The places we visited were out of the normal crowded destinations and the local tour guides were knowledgeable and professional. My highlights were the truffle hunt and the visit to the mountaintop village of Bagnoreggio. I would recommend this tour to anyone.
