Mark Story, executive director of Story Land and Sea created a wonderful and thorough tour of Venice, Florence, San Gimignano, Rome and Sorrento. The itinerary was well defined ahead of time, his staff was quick to answer questions before and during the trip, the wine and Prosecco flowed well in the evenings and we made some great new friends in our 12-person group. He and his staff selected superb, location-oriented hotels that offered full hot breakfasts, quaint local restaurants for the first evening's dinner, and knowledgeable local guides for the morning tours. Afternoons were left open to do as we pleased. It was a great introductory trip that has whetted our appetite for more of Italy and other Story L&S Tours. I'm sure we'll become alumni clients. Have no doubts, you'll have fun. Make time for adventure, smell the roses, drink the Prosecco and kiss your companion-or an Italian, they are so beautiful! You won't regret it. Take lots of pictures so you can relive the adventure!
