Good to Know

Transport on this trip will mostly be by train and private minibus. The train systems in Italy are generally good with seat reservations and toilet/snack facilities on longer journeys. Please note that you MUST be comfortable carrying your own luggage as you can expect stairs in Italian train stations (very few are equipped with escalators or elevators). You may be required to carry your luggage short distances (up to 20 mins walk), in larger cities and occasionally the group will take taxis to and from hotels.

The rooms are warmly decorated with a variety of rural and sea views. Rooms in the main house share bathroom facilities, while rooms in the annex have ensuite bathrooms.
