What people say about this tour 

" Buongiorno Itallia "

Sasa and Alex were the best guides!! They were so knowledgable and funny and we loved spending the few days on the tour with them. Everything was so well done and professional. We got to see so much in a short time and for a very good price. This was the best tour we found in Italy and Sasa and Alex made it even better! The hostel they set us up in was one of the nicest I've ever stayed in. The transportation with either the bus or the train was very efficient, nice, and fun!!
