It is hard to believe that a week has gone by since we had lunch with you and Matteo in Perugia and we are now back home. It was a pleasure to meet both of you and thank you for the lunch and the great conversation about you and your family and Italy.
Leslie and I are happy to be home but at the same time we are missing our trip to Italy. We had a fantastic time and have so many memories of the cities and towns we visited, our guides and drivers, the beautiful sites that are unique to Italy, and the great meals and wine!.
Discover Your Italy did a fantastic job with the planning and execution of our trip. All of the hotels were great with the one in Florence being our favorite. The location, the room, the breakfast, and the amenities were the best. The coordination of the transportation was impressive. All of the drivers were on time and made sure that we reached our destination and met up with the our guide.
One of our best experiences was the market and cooking class with Chef Laura. It was such fun shopping in the market and actually cooking in her home and being in a section of Florence where tourists wouldn’t normally be. Then having the food we helped make out on the back veranda was such an experience!
We also enjoyed the bacari tour, the wine and cicchetti were excellent. . Here are other memorable experiences:
- The beauty of Lake Como, Cinque Terre, the view from the top of Perugia looking out into Umbria
- Seeing Venice and the canals
- Seeing a church in Ravenna from the 5th century!
- The arena in Verano
- Seeing the Last Supper in Milan
Than you very much for a wonderful trip. I’ve attached some picture from our cooking with Chef Laura.
