” The private sightseeing tours at each town were superb and we would not change anything. The car service to and from Verona was excellent. The opera tickets were very good, excellent seats and we could not have chosen better. The hotel staff were wonderful and made the holiday. “

C. Shipley (ESP)

” ..Everything was first class: the hotels were excellent, well located, good breakfasts… We were most welcomed, and we appreciated the extra effort by the hotel staffs. Our walking tour guides were very personable, knowledgable, and very entertaining. They had tips and suggestions for the next few days on our own. The highlights we will remember the most were the operas in the historic Roman amphitheater in Verona….the staging of Aida was spectacular! “
