I have just one suggestion about the daily planning at Malverina.
Each day we were taken on a great tour of a town by Phillipo and Bambino - the greatest two guys - we loved them both!!! The problem was they would tell us about 12 or 1 you now have free time till 3.
Well, that's when the whole town closes!!! We were finally able to get them to drop us off at a town, and then give us the tour during the "siesta" time, so we had time to wander on our own and shop. This worked out much better.
All in all, Sophia, thanks for sticking with us through all the turmoil and making sure we were able to go on this glorious vacation!!! By the way, the two ladies from California were wonderful travel companions!! Use me anytime for a reference. We loved everything about our visit to Italy. Everbody at Malvarina was a delight. We are so happy it all came together. It was great!! We loved Maria, her family, especially our translator Phillipo and his friend and our guide, Pepe Bambini. Umbria is spectacular! I've never seen so many unspoiled medieval walled cities. And of course, Maria's food was great! We even had a surprise snowstorm Sunday night. Thanks so much for everything!
