The trip to Tuscany (with side trips to Umbria) with 3 other couples, would not have been the same were it not for the wonderful service provided by Marco Lopatto, our driver/guide. Not only did he come to pick us up in Rome to drive us to our rented villa near Arezzo, but he took us on five daily excursions - lasting 10 hours each - throughout Tuscany and Umbria; he even drove us to Venice for our other leg of the Italy trip. We were really impressed not only with Marco’s knowledge of the area but also with the many wonderful stops he arranged – which were not pre-booked – all to make our Italian experience that much more wonderful. In the two weeks, we visited a total of 26 cities, towns, villages and hamlets. Marco took us as close as possible to the attractions as well as to restaurants which served great food. We felt in very good hands and we now consider Marco a good friend. If we were to return to Tuscany, we would dearly love to have Marco’s services again. If there was just a little drawback, it was Marco’s lack of fluency with the English language but we could see that he was improving his communications efforts daily. Well done, Marco, and thank you!
