Hi Elaine,

We have taken two trips with Elderhostel, one to Malta in 1999 and one to Rome in 2000. Both of them were over Christmas and New Years and were excellent. The personnel specialized in their respective countries/cities and brought in native lecturers just about every day to give us in-depth information on whatever we were going to see that day.

Our accommodations were very comfortable albeit not luxurious. In Malta, we stayed in a very nice hotel and in Rome, we stayed in a rather large monastery/convent. Both places were conveniently located to public transportation.

I would recommend Elderhostel to anyone.
