Thanks to those who attended our information meeting Wednesday evening. One particpant asked about the hotels we will be staying at during the tour. We will be posting our hotels within the week. Our supplier is currently negotiating with three hotels in Rome. When we hear back from them, we will post more information our our web site. In addition, we have tentative plane schedules that require a rather long first day. The current plane schedule requires us to leave Springfield at 9:00 a.m. with a plane change before we fly to Rome. We have requested a shorter layover and anticipate that we will be leaving Springfield later than 9:00 a.m. on May 16, 2007. More updates shortly. Thank you to all who have booked the trip so far. We have already met half of our group goal. Please don't hesitate to call our office at 877-713-7650 if you have any questions.

Sometimes time can slip away from us. When last we posted we were headed to Las Vegas and in the midst of planning a group trip with public radio station WUIS to help them with their fall fund raising drive. Mission accomplished. It has been a very busy two months. We are now up and going. Promotion for the trip is underway and and we are planning a two week trip to France and Italy for the last two weeks in October. This trip will help us complete the WUIS group trip details. If you haven't had a chance to check out the WUIS trip, please do so. We spent a significant amount of time planning this trip, doing our best to combine the best of Florence and Rome for the group, while incorporating plenty of free time for each individual member. We are especially proud of our group dinner selections because group dinner on the whole we have found are not the best. Adding the chance to attend the Maggio Musicale Florentino concerts makes this trip a special can't get it anywhere else experience. We have done the hard stuff. You know. The transportation connections, the hotels, the ticket purchases, that can make independent travel a struggle at times. It is a great trip. Hope you can enjoy us.
