Tours 2013: Women’s Tuscan Villa Escape
September 9 – 20, 2013
Porto Ercole, Italy
Imagine sitting on a terrace of an enchanting Italian country estate looking over the silvery green leaves of olive orchards that gently slope down to a small village filled with colorful, old buildings, that just happen to sit right on the edge of the beautiful blue Mediterranean. And, of course, you are sipping one of the great red or white wines produced in this region. And from here you will take day trips to the Tuscany that most Americans don’t see as well as spend 2 days in Rome. This tour guarantees that you will leave your heart in Italy and truly become Italian.
Tours 2014: Flavors of Tuscany
April 28 – May 9, 2014
If you dream of Italy – and who doesn’t – be prepared to fall in love with Italy on this tour. Come and explore, taste, and discover the Italian countryside. The trick to enjoying Tuscany is to settle in and begin to hear the rhythms of the ancient countryside, lived in since long before the Roman Empire. And we have just the place to do this – Montestigliano. And once you unpack, you won’t have any cares until it is time to go home after 12 glorious days spent among the hills and villages of Tuscany!
