“The trip was wonderful – thank you! The girls really enjoyed their stay and were amazed by the scenery!! The gnocchi making was especially great – I didn’t realise that it would include a tour of her farm, a mozzarella-making demonstration, the gnocchi making, a 2 course meal and marmelade and liquor tasting as well!! It was a lovely thing to do and would be worth publicising to other schools!”
