It was so relaxing as I didn't have to worry about a thing. From being met at the airport by Carlo, to the outings and finally being dropped off again in Florence, everything went so smoothly. But I think Hugh and Stefano make a great team and I enjoyed their easy laughter and professionalism. I learnt a lot from Hugh, he is a great teacher.
