Cremona - City of Music
We recently had the chance to visit Cremona, a small town close to Milan, and discovered a musical gem!

If any Hedonistic Hikers are passing through Milan this summer and have a free day or two, then Cremona is within easy reach by train. It has the fascinating Museum of Violins, as the city was home to the world's most famous violin-maker of all time, as well as Italy's tallest medieval tower!
A reminder of the importance of insurance
We have written about this before but a comprehensive travel insurance policy is a condition of travelling with us, and can save the day even before you set off for you holiday!
A number of people this year have needed to cancel trips at short notice due to sporting injuries, or other health issues, and the only way to recoup lost funds is through a comprehensive insurance policy, which will not only cover the cost of your tour but your cancelled flights too!

On the trail of truffles in October in Piedmont
Australian journalist, Keren Lavelle, joined us last year in Piedmont at the height of the truffle season.
She published this lovely article on the Luxury Travel website about taking part in the hunt for the legendary white truffle of Alba.  If you want to try your hand too, we have just two remaining spaces for the October 25th departure, starting in Turin.
