countryside. Thanks to our very knowledgeable guide, we experienced Italian life, art and culture in an especially personal and unforgettable way. I can’t wait to go again!

Thank you for a wonderful trip to Italy. I still dream about the beautiful sites I saw, the amazing art at the museums, the views from the towers. I loved all the walking, kept me from gaining any weight in spite of all the delicious food we had every evening. I loved going to local restaurants that you knew, rubbing elbows with the local folk after a day of tourist sights. And oh the sights, from Rome and the Vatican, to Siena and that amazing church to Florence and the Uffizi. Well I could just go on and on and name every place you arranged for us to go because every single visit was spectacular and each had its own charm. I also just have to say a word about the hotels, both in Florence and in Rome they were stellar. The more modern hotel in Siena was also fine, but the other two were my favorites, great locations and great service and lovely buildings. When I returned home I was talking with a Swiss friend of mine and mentioned the Tournabuoni in Florence. She knew the place and was amazed that I could afford to stay there as she remembers it from her many visits to Florence and wishing she could stay there. I felt quite lucky, and I owe it to you since you did all the arrangements. Thanks so much, I am ready to go again!!!!

Happily for me I also revisited Hannibal’s courageous route to history’s pages. Along with Peggy Brucia she scouted this path and then shared the campaign with us in ways that even the elephants would be thrilled to revisit! I am hoping to travel with her again in the near future and look at it as one of my “plans” for my life.

Sometimes, they would ask me, usually at the rear of our group, if they could remain with us throughout a museum, and one group of college-age girls were so
impressed with Patsy’s knowledge and manner of presentation that they requested to tour with Patsy for the duration of their time in Florence.
When I went to Pompeii without Patsy, my tour lasted one hour. With Patsy, we wear jeans and feel we have covered the general outline of the place in around
eight hours. She once spent a semester studying and working on a paper there, so she even knows which restaurants serve the best Buffalo Mozzarella there. She is also a scholar, who has led other scholars of the classics on many tours.
She knows Italian and where the Italians actually stay, rather than Americans, some of whom confuse the American-like hotel in which they lodge for the country
which they are visiting. She brings the study of a lifetime to bear on her tours, having studied and taught the ancients, art, wines, and a life of bounty and discovery. She still presents each day of a tour as if it were an adventure in itself, and anyone who
selects her as a guide has the opportunity to experience a life-changing journey.
