Reader Escapes: Robin and Tom's Dolce Vita

Name: Robin and Tom
Location: Tuscany, Cinque Terre, and Milan, Italy
Link: Podere Castellare in Tuscany
Description: Italia = La Dolce Vita! It was our first trip to Italy, but it was by far the best vacation we have taken. My husband Tom and I used our 5 year anniversary as an excuse to make the trip...

We stayed in Florence for 2 days, Tuscany (about 30 min. outside of Florence) for 2 days, the Cinque Terre (mainly Vernazza) for 4 days, and Milan for 2 days. Our favorite lodging location while in Italy was this great Agriturismo in Tuscany called Podere Castellare, which was run by this cute, sweet young couple.

We met 2 other couples in Florence and again in the Cinque Terre. It was really lovely to share the experience with friends from home.

This trip was definitely a feast for all senses. But, it is definitely worth brushing up on some basic and essential Italian before visiting - just a tip. We cannot wait to go back and visit more of Italy.

Thanks for sharing your escape, Robin and Tom!
