Having traveled with OAT 14 times, this trip was another good one.. The Arethusa and crew, like their sister ship in the Adriatic, were wonderful.  It was late season (end of September) and our two PD's did a masterful job in rearranging itinerary when the ship was unable to land due to weather though we had little rain.  We missed one night in Florence, but were rewarded with a lovely stay in a Villa outside of Florence - a highlight for us. The Chianti tour was included and was great. Paolo, our PD, was a delight and very helpful for any extra things we wanted to do in Florence.  We had a wonderful group of "new" friends who all were very flexible with the changes and our PDs were to be commended for making it so smooth for us.
