Viaggio molto interessante. Abbiamo avuto la fortuna di avere Dimitri come guida: una persona disponibile e molto preparata. Ha saputo rispondere a tutte le nostre curiosità e ci ha portato a mangiare in un posto tipico non turistico. Darei anche 5 stelle, ma purtroppo c'e stato un inconveniente con la macchina che ci ha fatto perdere un oretta e abbiamo poi viaggiato in una macchina un po piu piccola e scomoda. Ma questo problema è passato in secondo piano perchè Dimitri è stato veramente eccezionale.
