We have just returned from our holiday to Venice. In short, we had a wonderful time, and all the arrangements worked very well. The trains all ran pretty much to time, and we found them all comfortable. The hotel in Venice was particularly nice. The staff were friendly, and it was in a beautiful situation – away from the crowds, but within easy walking distance of all the sights. It was nice to walk about the area of the hotel, and see ‘residential’ Venice at work. The hotels on the way there and back were fine, and we were blessed with beautiful weather for the morning we were at Montreux, so had a wonderful walk along the lakeside. Thank you again – I’m sure we will be coming back to you for future holidays.
