Description

Our BEST LIFE EVER Italy retreat series continues in Tuscany right after Best Life Ever Amalfi!  We really urge all participants in our BEST LIFE EVER series to do both segments because doing both offers great value for money an not only that - but who comes to Italy for one week?  Italy is a huge country! Even though it looks small on a map, the regions in Italy are more like countries unto themselves. The food from region to region differs - the dialect of the language changes and the landscapes from place to place are radically different - each offering new and wonderfully rich experiences.  

For those coming with us from our retreat Best Life Ever Amalfi!  you will come with us today, while those new participatns for Best Life Ever Tuscany - will be picked up in Rome to meet those joining the group!.  This spectacular week we do not call BEST LIFE EVER for nothing. It truly is the BEST EVER!  

The retreat includes 5 nights in a luxurious Tuscan villa, Villa L'Apparita and 2 nights in Florence.  Activities include hot-air ballooning, visiting the incredible natural baths of Saturnia and San Filippo as well as the gorgeous hill towns of Tuscany including Siena, San Gimignano, Montalcino, Cortona and many others just a short distance away from the villa.  Every day we will enjoy local, organic produce and a variety of healthy meals served from the estates garden.
