It was most interesting, the highlights seeing Villa Silvio Pellico where lunch was excellent, garden & house splendid, and the Fiat Villa & Park which were superlative.


Hortus Piedmont 2014

Tour leader Helena Attlee and assistant Patty Shone were first class. They worked hard to make sure we were always enjoying ourselves and were concerned for our welfare. They were also very good company. My enjoyment was due as much to their efforts as to the lovely places we visited.
