Larry and Sandi Pimentel
“The ‘7 Nights Tuscany, Monte-Carlo & the French Riviera‘ is another favorite voyage of mine because we visit two of the most famous wine regions in Europe—Tuscany and Provence—and we plan to take full advantage of the opportunity to visit some of their vineyards as they are busy processing the 2013 harvest. And with two full days and a overnight in Livorno, we’ll have time to do some shopping and sightseeing in Florence, visit a Tuscan winery, climb the leaning tower of Pisa and take a bike ride through ancient Lucca.”
