Umbria, Perugia & Assisi

This was our 17th holiday with Riviera and as usual all our expectations were met.

We love Italy so this trip, a new one for Riviera, was a must for us. It was great to be in one hotel for the duration. The very charming Hotel Brufani was perfectly located in the lovely hill town of Perugia. When we arrived at the hotel, which was only a 30-minute journey from the Airport, another plus, we were met by the Hotel Manager as we got off the coach. A nice touch. Our room was very good and the staff responsible for keeping the rooms clean did an excellent job with nice touches such as a piece of chocolate by our pillow every night.

There was everything you could ask for at breakfast and again the staff were very charming and helpful.

We decided beforehand not to take up the option of having three dinners at the hotel as we were keen to eat out at local restaurants of which there many to choose from.

The varied programme was well put together with the furthest place being visited only a 90-minute coach drive away. Most start times were between 8.30 - 9.00 which was very civilised.

Our highlights were the day trip to Assisi and the visit to the Frasassi caves. Both excellent.

We have always been very pleased with the Tour Managers on previous trips and Bill was no exception. In fact, he was excellent. He was always very organised and provided a wealth of background information and maps, often with humorous asides.

We had one guide, Paolo, for three visits who was also excellent.

Our coach driver, Emanuelle, was also exceptional.
