Roberto C picked us up at our villa in the hills around Siena and drove us in his 7 person Mercedes van through the magnificent hills of Tuscany. He could not have been more accommodating and gracious to our 5 person group. We tasted wine, visited a stunning abbey, and had lunch on a hilltop farm patio that provided a quintessential Tuscan experience. All in all a memorial experience for us all.
