this particular trip is to san gimignano - which is located in central tuscany - seems like a nice trip and cheaper than most toscany trips !

Hi!

My name is Loni and I am looking forward to meeting everyone who will be doing the "Local Living" tour in San Gimignana, Italy. This is my first G-Tour. Salute!

I am from Hongkong but now working in England.
I am still a bit indecisive about whether taking a small suitcase or backpacking, cz the brochure said the road may not be smooth and with stairs.
but its good to meet u both before the trip starts!

p.s. if anyone cud add san gimignano in the topic, maybe more ppl can be gathered ;)

So am I! I have decided to join a tour departing from florence.
I know a Cinque Terre daytrip will be in a rush but I rather do it than regret it.

btw, I have asked the GAP for the agency doing the optional activities. I am going to join some tours...so excited!

Hi Canadianjo & Jade,

Just counting the days to Italy! I am from Victoria, BC., and look forward to meeting the both of you and others in our group.
You were both talking about Cinque Terre - I am heading there for a few days, but first, I am heading to Rome after San Gimignano.

Ciao, Loni
