Classical Italy for Solo Travellers

I have just come back from a fabulous holiday with Riviera - Classic Italy for Solo Travellers. From the start everything was so well organised. The Rep at Manchester airport was very helpful and welcoming despite it being 4.40am! We flew to Rome and Mohammed the Tour Manager was on our flight, the 3hr transfer was smooth and included a break. The Hotel in Arezzo was lovely and check in was efficient.

All the trips each day were so well organised, with a local guide giving a 2 hour walking tour.

The day we transferred to Rome, we went via Assisi which was a great way to break up the journey.

Mohammed was amazing throughout the week, very attentive to everyone's needs, he even organised a meal for us all in Rome on the last day, which was the free day.

I would highly recommend the trip, you got to see the a lot, my only comment would be that the Uffizi Gallery possibly be an optional choice as it wasn't everyone's cup of tea and I would probably preferred to walk around Florence some more.

Classical Italy for Solo Travellers

Have travelled with Riviera before but this was my first solo trip - and what a good experience! My fellow travellers were a really interesting mix of people (mostly ladies) from age 50ish to 80ish and I think we all enjoyed the age mix. The places we visited were well chosen and the coaches were comfortable, as with previous Riviera trips. Both our tour guide Christina and the local guides were all helpful, knowledgeable and amusing. The hotels were mid range and perfectly adequate for this type of trip, although a number of people complained about the lack of choices at dinner in Arezzo (basically a set menu) and having to wait on arrival at Rome airport for a later flight to join us before travelling to Arezzo, which made for a lot of travelling on the first day. One more day to explore Rome would have been welcome, but there's always next time.
