The Amalfi Coast
Life by the Italian Seaside...

"The weather on the Amalfi Coast is perfect, with warm afternoons and cool evenings. Breakfast with endless ocean views, singing birds, and the sun rising made for tranquil mornings, and a fresh start to every day."
- Jean, Villa Specialist, Read More

The Amalfi Coast
The Amalfi Coast
 is a true feast for the senses... From the smell of jasmine and wisteria on the wind to the sight of citrus trees and pastel houses speckled across the Positano mountainside. Want to indulge your tastebuds? The flavors of garlic, fresh seafood, hillside-pastured cheeses, and a chilled glass of wine will have you wondering: "Why would I ever leave?"

RESTAURANTS IN THE AMALFI COAST
A TASTE OF THE MEDITERRANEAN 
Amalfi Coast Restaurants Wake up like a true Italian with a cappuccino, orange juice, and fresh bread with marmalade at Baglio Amalfi Italian Bistro. You may be tempted to spend the entire day lounging beachside at La Fontelina, where the view is rivaled only by their cocktails (hot tip: cruise there by boat for a relaxed experience). Dine amongst lemon trees for lunch at Da Paolino ("their homemade ravioli was just astounding" says Jean). For dinner, head to Chez Black for fresh scampi and a vibrant dining experience (a photo-worthy moment: their heart-shaped pizzas are not only cute but super delicious).

Tuscany Destination Guide
Agrestic Wine Country...

"We g
ot a good taste for the Italian way of life in Tuscany. Even the villas were well geared towards enjoying life together. They had pool decks and sunning terraces with incredible views of the rolling hills, al fresco dining areas near beautiful gardens, and cozy sitting areas with large fireplaces. These are all places that draw people together to enjoy nature, good food and wine, and conversation. "

The Tuscany region
 of Italy is steeped in heritage, from local cuisine and vineyards older than most countries to its renaissance art and architecture. The emotions and rituals associated with wine and food are integral to the country's traditions and way of life.

RESTAURANTS IN TUSCANY
ONCE-IN-A-LIFETIME CUISINE, DAILY
Tuscany Restaurants Whether a quick bite or a full-course dinner, the restaurants of Tuscany invite you to slow down and relish moments spent tableside with friends and family. Looking for the perfect lunch? Take in the Florence landscape all while enjoying Parma ham with melon, fresh salad, and grilled chicken with rosemary at the al fresco tables of La Loggia Restaurant. Consider yourself a carnivore? Honor each animal eaten with a mouthwatering meal at one of Chef Dario's Butcher Shop and Restaurants (of Netflix's Chef's Table fame) in Panzano. Delight in a Tasting of Puccini Works (try the Ottofile Polenta Ravioli with Wild Bour Ragout, you won't regret it) surrounded by the friendliest staff at Ristorante Cas Puccini.

MODERN FUN IN A HISTORIC SETTING
From the food tours of Florence to the wine tours of Chianti, it may seem like so much of Tuscany is simply about indulging your tastebuds. Although foodies could get lost forever in this culinary haven, Tuscany is so much more. The architecture (like the Siena Cathedral, built in the Medieval ages) and museums (like Accademia Gallery, which houses Michaelangelo's Statue of David) in Florence alone will keep you preoccupied for a good while. Enjoy nightly classical music in the city of Lucca. Love shopping? Visit Arezzo, a vibrant jewelry district in the public squares of the Piazza Grande.

Lake Como
A Serene Lake Town...

"You know you’re getting close to reaching the lake as you approach the vast mountain range. Driving on winding roads around Lake Como is enchanting. The villages are covered with iconic shades of yellow, Pompeii red, and green scattered between shutters and doors. So much history in such a small place."
- Jean, Villa Specialist, Read More


Lake Como Lake Como, a sleepy mountainous stay in Italy's lake region, is the epitome of relaxation. Days are well spent walking amongst gardens filled with rhododendron and magnolias. Cypress, laurel, and even palm trees dapple the lakeside. Time slows here and all is tranquil, imbued with history, and bookended by delicious meals. By night, the lake comes to life with waterside festivities. There are 30-plus towns and hamlets for you to explore, all with their own unique quirks and stories.

RESTAURANTS IN LAKE COMO
COZY BITES & CHARMING VIEWS
Lake Como Restaurants The Italian cuisine found in Lake Como inspires comfort, and good conversations taken slow. Expect elongated dining experiences (and beautiful views of the Lake), as the customs around eating here equals taking your time. Ristorante MOMI brings you on a culinary journey through their 4-course Degustation Menu (all made from local produce). For dinner, sit in the conservatory-like restaurant of Villa Belvedere (a must-try is their spaghetti frutti de mare). Watch the sun set at the Infinity Bar at Vista Palazzo with their signature Last Tango in Paris cocktail by your side (their late night food is a can't-miss).

LAKE ADVENTURES & WATERSIDE RELAXATION
Although the foodie and spa scene may keep you occupied for the duration of your trip, there is more to Lake Como than just eating and relaxing. From strolling the private gardens of I Giardini di Villa Melzi to private boat tours through the y-shaped waters, Lake Como has a place for all vacation speeds. Spend the afternoon hiking alongside the Fiumelatte (lovingly known as Italy's shortest river) and enjoy a picnic on the river's edge. Try your hand behind the wheel of an amphibious car with Larioland. Visit the Cathedral de Como, a beautiful piece of architecture made even more astounding by its array of sculptures and murals, dating as far back as the Medieval era.
