Terme di Saturnia -- An Italian Spa Experience
la dolce vita (the sweet life)...


What should I pack?

A few tips... suitcase

2-3 bathing suits; you're in them most of the time.

Exercise clothes for classes and early morning walks.

In the colder months, sweatpants and a jacket for early morning walks.

A better pair of shoes along with your running/walking shoes.

You can go into the dining room wearing exercise clothes at breakfast but you are asked "to dress" for lunch and dinner. At lunch a t-shirt and pants are just fine. Pack something a bit dressier for the evening. Some of the Italian women wore eveningwear while others wore a simple black shirt, an elegant scarf and black trousers. They all looked wonderful!

A spa recipe...

frying panIf you do not want to eat your eggs boiled or poached, just put two tablespoons of tomato juice or milk, or water with a pinch of stock added, in a small pan (preferably nonstick); when the liquid comes to a boil add the eggs, either beater or whole. You can also add artichokes, mushroom, zucchini, etc.

Thanks for the networking...


Our sincere thanks to Barbara Scorza and the staff at Terme di Saturnia for offerring Journeywoman their very excellent hospitality. We're delighted to count them a part of Journeywoman's International Network!

AlitaliaOur appreciation goes to Martino Mainardi and Diana Khoury of Alitalia Airlines (Head Office, Canada) who so kindly made arrangements for our Toronto - Rome return flights. Journeywoman's Italian experience really started as soon as we boarded the Alitalia aircraft. By the time we arrived in Rome, we had already sampled Italian food and wine, and our ears were attuned to the sound of the Italian language as it should be spoken. A first class mini cultural immersion! To find out about Alitalia offices around the world, please click here.
