If I planned an organised tour for 10-14 days
(tell me what you would prefer...thinking June/July/August) - to
le 5 Terre - Levanto (above); Vernazza & Monterosso
+ Venice + Florence + Rome + Milan
where you would learn Italian as you travel (with a complementary CD & DVD & E-book a month before the trip).
Visit the best restaurants (have menus before you leave home to study) & drink the best wine, eat the best gelato, even cook a meal together just for fun ...
Have photos & video taken (Italian Photographer has offered to create a DVD of the trip) of highlights including you speaking Italian ... would you be interested?
Anyone who feel they could enhance this by offering services...feel free to make suggestions via email to me...
I have been to Italy 8 times, have relatives & friends, language school & travel agent ready to help organise the trip if there is interest.
A 2 day Paris trip is certainly an optional extra if there is interest, as I'll be going anyway. I speak fluent French & teach it too so can organise for interested travellers a little DVD/CD/E-book for French too!
