SEPTEMBER 16-23, 2019

Ciao friends and family!

You are specially invited to join me for 7 nights in beautiful Tuscany, Italy to celebrate my 40th birthday! We will be staying near the town of Siena in our own private Villa. You are free to organize your trip anyway you choose. There are options to take organized tours, relax at the villa (by the amazing pool), go wine tasting, take Italian cooking classes, hire bikes to explore Tuscany, walk around and explore the shops and galleries, and SO much more. Bella Vita Vacations will plan it all, you pay for what you’re interested in prior to the trip. You are totally free to do whatever you wish on your own time and schedule. As for me, I will be hiring a car to explore the area (and take photos of course), wine tasting at select vineyards, relaxing by the pool, hiring a bike to explore the area, taking a cooking class, and did I mention drinking the best wine in the world! You are welcome to join me or do your own thing, all I ask is that we spend a few evenings at the Villa to eat dinner together, drink wine, laugh, and celebrate this amazing life! 

And the adventure doesn’t have to end there! After the unforgettable week in Tuscany, I will be traveling north to visit Venice (my absolute favorite place in the world) for another week. You are more than welcome to join me (and we can share expenses for accommodation if you want). But maybe you would rather explore Rome, Florence, Naples, or Cinque Terra (all amazing cities)? Italy is the most amazing country and there is SO much to see and do. I spent a summer studying architecture in Venice in my early 20’s and also backpacked through Italy for 6 weeks back in 2006. I know some amazing places to explore, so hit me up if you want some suggestions or specific information. 

Please RSVP as soon as possible and secure your room in Tuscany. 

Andiamo a Toscana!!!
