Villa Campomaggio


In less than two months my boyfriend and I will be heading to Italy to spend sixteen days in the Cinque Terre, Tuscany, Florence, and Venice.  While I am incredibly excited about each segment of our trip, I cannot stop thinking about our six days in Tuscany.  We will be renting a car and driving through the countryside, staying in various villas, visiting ancient hill towns, tasting wines and olive oils, picnicking, and getting lost in the beauty of the land. 

One of the villas I am most excited about staying in is Villa Campomaggio - the home of an aristocratic family in the 18th century that was converted into a luxury hotel.  It is in the Chianti hills and surrounded by vineyards and woods.  We both love to travel and see as much as we can, but as you know that can be very tiring in itself {last time we came home from Europe I felt like I needed another vacation just to catch up on my sleep!}  So I am especially excited about slowing down a little bit and savoring the little moments in Tuscany.  La dolce vita!

  7. Oh, lucky you! You are going to have a wonderful vacation! I actually live in Florence :) I've been travelling in the US for the last 2 months, but I'll be back home in a week or so. The Cinque Terre is one of the most beautiful places on Earth. If you want to go to a really good restaurant in Florence, go to "La trattoria dei 13 gobbi", the food is heavenly (and authentic).
