The 6 of us on the tour earlier this month discovered that the towns in southern Italy are all built on the tops of mountains. So we climbed daily to lunch and climbed again each afternoon to our hotel. But the food and the views from the top were worth it. I wish I could do it all over again.
We're planning on returning to Italy to do the Amalfi Coast in 2010 or 2011. Let me know if you're interested in joining us!
