A group of nine descended on Jan and were immediately given a Liverpudlian/Italian welcome that continued to impress throughout the week. Marvellous walks, fantastic food, sunshine and local wines all combined to make the perfect walking/Bridge holiday. But it is the warmth and generosity Franca,...More
