Buonasera Giulia,We had a marvelous time in Italy...Our trip worked out just a planned. Our flights were all good, connections worked out. Rental car and driving was easier than we anticipated...Liguria was beautiful. Cesare in Monterosso was a great host. The apartment we used was large and very nice, we were spoiled for the rest of the trip... The people at the ... Winery in Monterosso are very kind and nice. The winery is up the hill from ... B & B and the wine tasting offered was very nice. We spent a delightful afternoon at the winery. The train between the 5 towns was efficient and convenient. The boat trip was touristy. The truffle exhibit was fascinating! The sights and smells in the exhibit hall were fabulous. The food and wine tasting was great...Thank you so much for the tickets to the Palio. We were unsure what we were getting into, but the staff at the hotel and shop below (especially Francesca) were very helpful and encouraged us to go for the entire event. The skits presented by each of the districts in Alba were interesting... The donkey races were just about the funniest thing we have ever seen. We laughed and laughed, what great fun!Our tours were just as we anticipated. The guide, Alexandra, was knowledgeable and very pleasant. Her English language skills were very good. She was well spoken and understandable. The drivers were professional and very familiar with the roads.We hope this feedback is helpful. We had a great time on our Italian vacation.Thank you and all the staff at Trips 2 Italy!Best regards,Rick & Cara M.
