Join us, me…JOE EURO and Doumina…of THE ENTHUSIASTIC TRAVELER This Fall, 10/26-11/6

for authentic and charming adventures in the hill towns of Umbria and Tuscany! Explore superb foods paired with unforgettable and elegant Italian wines while exploring unsung Umbria and Tuscan Treasures.

What does autumn in Italy mean? It means rustic family recipes, wine harvesting, and blazing fires. It means cooking classes, truffle hunting, and laughter. It means olive harvests, foggy mornings, and wood smoke in the air. It means sunny days and cool nights. It means autumn sunsets, and home made pasta, pizza.

It means chanting monks and church bells peeling. It means many things, but most of all, it means a change. A shift in your spirit, and the way you approach life. Come and see what we mean. We hope you can join us for 12 days in Umbria and Tuscany.
