Thanks to the CD team for a magical vacation! They are incredibly warm welcoming people who truly enjoy what they do and that shows through the whole week.
This is a taste of the real Italy & you are invited to share life in the village and get a true sense of Italy in a non touristy way which is magic. I continued travelling in Italy for another week & a half after leaving Soriano and while beautiful nothing matched that week.
The CD teams hospitality is great & you are treated like family which is lovely (especially when you've been travelling on your own). The excursions are wonderful (you get to see a lot of Tuscany & Umbria which is what it's all about) as is the food and the cooking classes. There's a lot of lovely food & beautiful wine not to mention Michael's grappa & homemade cheese.
The harvest festival was amazing and I came home still saying Grazie and reciting Spartico & Rocky's history lessons.
It was an amazing vacation and I would do again in a heartbeat. Thanks so much Michael, Paola, Carla, Rocky, Spartico,Rita, Pierina & Sergio.
