we’re doing well … and we hope you are too.
In these unusual times we are discovering how rich virtual travel can be. Now more than ever we feel the importance of connecting with others – and other places – as we journey with our mind, heart and senses.
I am now offering online ITALIAN LESSONS. The lessons are fun, dynamic and effective, and can be personalized to different levels and interests, from travel-friendly conversational Italian to tutoring for students. Contact me for more details and to set up a free 15-minute introductory lesson.
Online Wine Tastings We’ll have a case of bottles from niche Tuscan wineries sent to your home, and then we will taste and contemplate them together online.
Wine Consultations Pick the brains of a sommelier.
And to whet your appetite, check out these video tours of Volterra.
over the coming weeks we’ll be posting a number of video interviews with some of our favorite Tuscan characters to share some “local color” with you. Stay tuned!

Volterra- an Etruscan Place
We went down a long, stony street, and out of the Porta dell’Arco, the famous old Etruscan gate… Up handsome and round goes the arch, at a good height, and with that peculiar weighty richness of ancient things; and three dark heads, now worn featureless, reach out curiously and inquiringly… to gaze from the city and into the steep hollow of the world beyond.D.H. Lawrence “Etruscan Places”
Come discover it.
A place to remember.
