What an amazing day. The hike was the best part of the trip! Stefano also gave us a number of great recommendations for things to do/see and eat : ). The weather can be warmer than what's predicted in the forecast, so keep that in mind when packing/dressing. The forecast said 19, but it felt like ~30 when we were hiking. The sun gets pretty strong. I'm really grateful to all the guides Stefano, Gabriele, and Guido for making our trip so enjoyable!

Gabrielle, Guido, and Chris were amazing guides. They took really good care of us, explained everything, and provide whatever we needed. Thanks a lot, guys. It was a pleasure to join your tour. Grazie mille!
