Simon and Greg are in a pub in London talking about last year’s holiday.
“So, where did you say you went for holiday last year?”- asked Greg.

“We went to Italy”, replied Simon.
“Was it nice?” asked Greg.
“It was incredible. We visited many places: Rome, Venice, Florence”, answered Simon.
“Was it expensive?” asked Greg
“Well, a little bit. Especially in Venice because we stayed at a nice hotel near Saint Mark’s Square”, replied Simon.
“But you were in Italy too, weren’t you?” asked Simon to Greg.
“Well, that was many years ago. Last year we went to Egypt”, said Greg.
“Did you like it?” asked Simon.
“Yes. It was fantastic! We had a great time though the weather was extremely hot”, replied Greg.
“What cities did you visit apart from Cairo?” asked Simon.
“We went to Luxor and Sharm El-sheik”, replied Greg.
“Wow! Sharm El-sheik, so you went diving”, cried Simon.
“Right. We went diving and in Luxor and we saw the Luxor Temple, Karnak Temple, the Valley of the Kings, the Valley of the Queens, everything there was to see”, said Greg.
“That sounds great. What monument did you like the best?” asked Simon.
“It’s hard to say. I think the pyramids of Giza, near Cairo”, he said.
“And you, which Italian city did you like the best?” asked Greg.
“They are all great, but I think my favourite is Venice. We met some friends there and we had a lot of fun with them”, replied Simon.
“Did you arrange to meet them in Venice?” asked Greg.
“No, we didn’t. We met by chance right in a Café in Saint Mark’s Square”, replied Simon.
“What a coincidence!” said Greg.
“Yes, it was a great coincidence because they had some Italians friends who gave us a guided tour”, said Simon.
“Well, that was lucky”, said Greg.
