We loved the fact that we were able to cover so much ground in so little time! Having an overall tour guide for the tour (who stayed with us always) and then a specialist tour guide in each city was a wonderful way to get all the details, feel informed, feel safe, and keep our energy and engagement high.
Paola was wonderful as our constant companion guide, and kept everything on track each day while filling us in with great details. Fiona was spectacular in Venice. Francesca was fabulous in Verona. Anna Maria was a dream in Milan. The Creativvando group in Genoa was lovely. Our bus driver, Gianmarco, kept us safe, managed difficult luggage, and drove comfortably.
The hotels were all delightful, especially the one in Montecatini! We would definitely return to any one of them. Some people expressed disappointment in the B&B hotel in Como, but that was likely because it was farther out from the main parts of Como, but we personally liked the setup and modernity of the B&B.
Thanks to the tour's great coverage of the Veneto, Lombardy, Perugia, and Tuscany regions, I now know great places to return to and take more in-depth time to explore. Thanks "On the Go" tours for all the arrangements and detailed planning that go into making this kind of trip so seamless and successful! We recognise it's a lot of hard work and know it takes a lot of people behind the scenes (like our great tour contact, Sam Webster Bell) to coordinate such an experience!
We knew we would be active, but "On the Go" truly takes you on-the-go. I clocked between 5 and 8 miles of walking every day. Thanks to this kind of leisurecize (leisure + exercise) I actually lost 5 pounds--even while eating the wonderful regional food! It was a nice plus to come home and fit in the skinny jeans!
We also made wonderful connections with interesting people from other countries who were touring alongside us. How fun to spend time with diverse people who are ready to explore the sites in foreign cities! We are eager to plan our next trip.
The opening meal at Giardino and the closing meal (at a place whose name I can't recall) in Lucca were great ways to start and finish our marvellous trip! ”
Wonderful time. Susanna was informative and knew her stuff. The trip was great. ”
Susanna was most informative, extremely helpful and very accommodating. She willingly shared her vast knowledge on Italian history. This was our first overseas holiday and so a very different experience but very enjoyable. ”

The right size to be one of the most walkable cities in Italy, Florence is the birthplace of the Renaissance. And as you might expect, it's loaded with wonderful art, architecture and fine museums. Thanks to its location in the heart of the Chianti region, Florence is a great place to enjoy affordable and delicious wines. The local food is incredible too with plenty of fresh Tuscan produce to tempt you, as showcased in Mercato Centrale, a traditional building with excellent restaurants, cafes and bars.
