Just returned from my second tour (Sole Terra) with Nada's Italy last week. Just like the first tour, I took three years ago (Jewels of Amalfi Coast) it was the trip of a lifetime and exceeded my expectations over and over. Nada's approach to small group tours and itinerary content is spot on. The food was unbelievably good and all restaurant selections are keepers (only gained 2lbs...not sure how I got that lucky). Our tour leader Alice was precious and made it so special with her genuine passion for her Italian heritage and immense knowledge. Till next time.......thanks for everything!
Loved the trip and would give our tour leader high marks against any others. There is so much to see and learn, the Italian Treasures tour is the place to start, and yet it can only begin to whet your appetite for more. We'll be back.
We couldn't have picked a better tour for a fun and relaxing trip to see some of Italy's treasures! Nada's Italy was a five-star experience! Grazie!!!

I have heard nothing but, good things about this company and their tours!!!
I was constantly pleasantly surprised. Florence was best, Rome was second, then Venice. I really liked Orvieto and Sienna. Orvieto for the shopping and plaza. Sienna for the quirkiness of it all. San Gimignano had great restaurants and was fascinating. Antonella made two 12 person dinner reservations for the group at our request. Those were enjoyable since the group got along well. For those we got to pick food that we wanted to have again. I am astonished that I did not gain weight since I ate so well and with multiple dishes and wine.
