Guiseppe was fun and tried very hard to figure out what we liked to do, and then spent a lot of time scouting things out for us. We especially enjoyed the cooking classes with Giorgio. That in fact was probably the highlight of our trip. I prefer the "in home" type of class that we had rather than one in a fancy restaurant, of which I think there are many available. We enjoyed the experience of meeting Giorgio's family and having dinner with them. Both the hotels were beautiful and very different from each other. It was nice to be in a bigger town part of the time, as it allowed us to entertain ourselves a bit by shopping and sightseeing by foot.
We had a wonderful time. Michelangelo was a great tour guide. He was very informative. We enjoyed his personality as well. He took us to wonderful restaurants and knew what to order. We also enjoyed the cooking tour. The people there were so nice. Very pleased over all.
