    We greatly enjoyed our city tour and our food experience. Our guide, Christina, was extremely knowledgeable, communicated very well and took very good care of her guests. The foods were excellent and typical of Italy and the region. Having dinner and listening to the cast warming up to present Othello at the theater next to the restaurant was an added bonus. The garden setting for dinner was lovely. As always, one of the best parts of the tour was meeting our fellow travelers and sharing with them as we ate.

    Our guide Christina was very knowledgeable, and the area we toured through was a nice shopping place as well. We enjoyed it.
