Italy: On tour

Personalized Travel, 5455 Sylmar Ave., No. 902, Sherman Oaks, CA 91401; (818) 994-2402, "Ten-day Italy tour took us to Lucca, Lake Maggiore and Venice. The name of the company is very appropriate since there were only 20 of us, making it feel like a personal group of new friends traveling together. Organizer Roberta Kritzia selected small, quaint hotels and excellent restaurants and day trips. Art instructor Glenn Vilppu was excellent, providing demonstrations and feedback." Next tour will be June 6-17, $3,395 per person, double occupancy, land only. Single surcharge $795.
