If you want to be treated with respect, don't set your foot in the cars from this company. I have never met such a rabid Italian in my life.

Hi. We took the 50/60 tour. We were lucky to have taken the tour with very brief notice. I would recommend making a reservation as the tourist season really gets underway.

They can pick you up from the train station or at a landmark near there. Best to send them an e-mail or make a phone call and ask where. You'll need to make reservations, anyway.
