STEVE AND TERRY CHOSE THE ITALY'S GREAT CITIES TOUR. Here is what they thought of GLOBUS, the tour and Italy:
THANK YOU!! We had a great time in Italy!! We were up and at ‘em early every day, but we covered a lot of territory, and I wouldn’t have changed a thing!! Especially glad you recommended going a day early and staying the extra day….next time, maybe a couple more days????
Globus was a wonderful tour company, our Tour Director, Laura, and the bus driver, Bruno, talked of a reunion trip for our whole group in two years to Spain.
The paintings and architecture did NOT disappoint and I was in awe often. Easter with the Pope was the icing on the cake…the popemobile sighting was phenomenal. He celebrated Stations of the Cross at the Colloseum on Good Friday…it was so cool to watch that on TV and knew exactly where he was because we had just been there a few days earlier.
Each stop provided more learning and experiences…from shopping, to eating, and photo ops, as you could tell by my posts. I have soooo many pictures to sort through.
Thank you again for the wonderful memories!! Please tell Nikki that I’m glad I ended up canceling the gondola excursion I booked online, because it turned out that if I kept it as it was online (Tues. AM the only option), we would’ve missed St. Mark’s Square and the Murano Glass Factory. We went on the gondola ride Monday evening and it was PERFECT!! Also, we really really enjoyed the organic farm dinner…atmosphere, ambiance and food were all perfect!
You can use any picture you think is best! This is not the last trip we’ll be on!!!!
Terry.....and Steve loved the trip too!
