Wanted to give you some feedback on our Path of the Gods adventure today. It was excellent!

Francesco, our guide, was awesome! He truly made our day extra special. We had a wonderful lunch with him at the end and really enjoyed talking with him. The food at the restaurant and the views of Positano were both fantastic! We were so glad we included that in our trip! We had fun sampling the limoncello yesterday and we also signed up for a pizza-making class last night. It was at Tirabuscio in Sorrento. We had so much fun and met a great group of people. Would definitely recommend it to anyone that wants to learn how to make Neapolitan pizza.

Grazie Mille! Everything has been like clockwork. Your colleagues on this side have been so wonderful to be with.

Sonia our guide at the Vatican & today at the Borghese Gallery was outstanding. Her knowledge of art/artists/paintings & and sculptures was beyond expectation. She was a walking art history presentation. The properties are beautiful. We really loved the Donna Camilla Savelli in Trastevere. A delightful and undervalued gem in Rome!
