From

Memorable parts? If you like mountains, beautiful mountain scenery and photographing this is a trip to take. The Dolomite area caters to hikers, campers, bikers (motor and pedal) with a multitude of accommodations. There are many scenic spots right on the road and more trails to even more scenery. Tips? We went in mid June and it rained briefly nearly every day later in afternoon. The mountain tops still had snow and meadows were green with flowers. A traveler needs clothing... (more)John Cigusis

Memorable parts? All the winery lunches excursions... great food and wine. Tips? Sicily was a lot of fun... the excursions are worth it, though you need to be in shape and able to walk up steep hills and stairs... but the food on the boat was mediocre ... a Croatian crew and the boat was stocked with food and wine and water from there. I ate out every chance I could. Local benefits? We definitely benefitted the local businesses... not much for the environment Overall... (more)Bruce Cramer

Memorable parts? The food was fantastic, and the landscape. Tips? This holiday was very well organised by Giovanna in Italy, and ran like clockwork.
