I’ve been working with Linda Clay and her marvelous company, Travel Specifics, for some months now, devising a trip based on all the things I love about Italy: gardens, wine, olive oil, glorious sights and scents and thrilling new information. This trip of my dreams includes everything I adore about Italy and the Italians and what they have to offer.
Our tour is a feast for the senses. We will travel to beautiful cities and charming villages and enjoy sumptuous dinners in sublime surroundings. As we wander through intense Tuscan colours and vistas there will be delights enough for photographers and artists alike. We immerse ourselves in wine and olive oil tastings at unforgettable vineyards and family trattorias. Thefragrance of flowers will follow us wherever we go: from rolling fields to an organic harvest that results in the aroma of our own gourmet lunch in the enchanted hills of Chianti.
Our tour is also an opportunity to pursue your passion for learning. Our knowledgeable local guides, often the owners or head gardeners, will inform us about their unique and innovative approaches combining ancient and modern techniques and sustainable gardening and agricultural practices.
Imagine yourself on this inspiring, sensuous journey as you explore the details of our personally chosen 12 day, 10 night itinerary.
Have a look at it. Come with me on this great tour, I guarantee we will have a wonderful time.
