She Finds Twenty Great Ways to Enjoy Italy


Evelyn Hannon

Italy is one of Journeywoman's favorite destinations. There is just so much to enjoy. We love the food, fashion, culture, extraordinary scenery and the absolute music of the Italian language. We've travelled to Italy solo, with girlfriends and on a group learning holiday. Each had its own perfect pleasure. Each provided its own perfect memories.

Perhaps you haven't tried Italy yet? Or, maybe you love it so much you can't wait to get back. Either way we've collected a wonderful sampling of 20 ways to enjoy Italia alone, with friends, family or with a complete new group of travellers. Take your pick, ladies. They all sound fabulous to us. Enjoy!

Women/Wine/Food/Fun in Italy...

Join my small (4-12) culinary tours/cooking classes to Italy and let me share with you the rich assortment of friends and colleagues in the country that has captured my heart - we'll visit an amazing group: baker, butcher, winemaker, balsamic master, olive oil producer, cheese makers, grappa processors, chefs, fishermen. All while staying in beautiful accommodations throughout Italy: Tuscany, Umbria, Venice, Riviera/Cinque Terre, Amalfi Coast, Sicily, Apulia.

Bonus tip! Convents offer accommodation in Italy...

I'd like women travelling to Rome to know that along with welcoming pilgrims, many convents are now opening their doors to international tourists. Some convents offer regular hotel-type accommodations while others remain very basic -- no TV, bar or telephone. Breakfasts are often included and some convents even serve lovely budget dinners cooked and served by the nuns. Chances are you'll be meeting very interesting travellers from around the world. Of course safety, spirituality and reasonable curfew reign supreme at all of these establishments. For further information see: (1) (2)
