More vegetarian meals could b offered in the evening with more variation for the half board options. Such as more pasta dishes with different vegetables and cheeses. A vegetarian sharing platter could b put on the menu. Vegetarian lasagne. Homemade pizza.

How could we improve the quality of pre-holiday information that we send?

We could have travelled by taxi transfer with another couple that were in Pisa and travelling to the hotel at the same time. (They were on the shorter riding holiday but rode with us for 3 days). This would have saved money and been better for the environment as we were in a taxi that seated about 8 people.
[Becky from In The Saddle replies: Unfortunately the ride operator uses a third party taxi company to do all of the transfers. However, we will do our best to group people where possible in the future.]
