The Art Nouveau movement, known as Liberty in Italy, was embraced by several Torinese architects and this elegant city became the Liberty capital of Italy. Nearby Milan embraced the style in nearly equal measure and we explore its legacy in both cities on this superb new tour in the company of renowned Art Nouveau expert, Prof Anne Anderson. The brief flourishing came in the first decade of the 20th century with a host of lovely buildings by architects Pietro Fenoglio, Giovanni Gribodo and others, including the renowned La Fleuri apartment block.

Although I rang your office to inform them that I was now on a Gluten Free diet, this information was not given to the Lecturer/Tour Manager. Both restaurants were very accommodating but it would have been helpful for all if this information had been passed on. It would have been a more balanced tour if there had been more visiting interiors and/or museums as the tour was mostly outdoor walking so we were thankful that we had good weather.

We are very sorry that you had a problem with your dietary request but we have checked all the rooming lists sent to the hotel and tour manager and it is clearly stated on them.

Disappointed that the price for new customers was reduced just before we were due to make the final payment - this left a nasty impression

Travel Editions feedback:

I am very sorry for the price reduction, which we do very rarely but it is to ensure the tour can get a minimum number to operate and therefore not disappoint those already booked. It also means you have a lot less travellers on the tour as a result.

Day 2 which was spent looking at Art Nouveau in Turin proved to be a tiring day as we were out from 9am to 6pm and mainly on our feet apart from coffee and lunch breaks. The pace was more relaxed on all the other days. Good to be in a small and convivial group and to have Anne Anderson's expertise. Local guides charming.

Group numbered 12 people only...which made the trip very enjoyable. Hotel was 5star and excellent.Has set the bar for future TE tours.Please note. The Milan day trip did not do justice to Milan.Time would have been better spent in Turin. We found this trip quite exhausting thus the extra day in Turin would have been appreciated. The two local guides,Stefano in Turin and Lavania in Milan were very good and certainly added value. Anne was at her usual best and lead and managed the group...she is a real asset to your business. We have reservations regarding the merits of these short tours.Maybe an extra day would/should be considered. Future tour destinations.With Art N in mind..Trieste should be introduced pronto..so at least you will beat the opposition!!!
