Italy Tour: Joan Mcmullen

What a wonderful trip! It was truly personalized.

Jerry Crippen, as the representative of Umfulana, was immediately responsive to every request. Jerry worked with me to set up the perfect tour for us. It took three itineries before we finally found what we wanted, but it ended up being the trip we had envisioned.

The hotels were central, comfortable, clean, and above average in every respect. We loved the rooms and appreciated the efforts of the front desk to find restaurants that met the strict dietary restrictions of our 13 year old granddaughter who accompanied us on the trip.

We spent three wonderful days in Rome. The hotel was an easy distance from the Forum, the Vatican Museum, the Colosseum, etc. It was fun learning the Metro and the sights and sounds of Rome still echo in our memories and will for years to come.

Bologna was the perfect rest stop after the hectic pace of Rome. The hotel was just off the main square of the city, the food was fabulous, and the shopping fun!

Venice is a fantasy city and mastering even a few of the intricate byways was a challange that frequently left us laughing. We took a gondola ride at sunset, saw the beautiful St. Mark's Cathedral, and toured the Murano glass factory! Thank you Jerry and Umfulana for the trip of our dreams.
