Six Places In Italy Every Woman Should Go


The land of la dolce vita offers a special something for women who would like to travel to Italy either alone or on a girlfriend outing. It speaks to our love of beauty, style, art, nature, and fashion.

Looking For George Cluny

You could conceivably run into this gorgeous actor who lives right on Lake Garda—which is an added reason to visit this beautiful location in Northern Italy! For an affordable stay, try the All’ Eremo Relais Agriturismo in the town of Bardolino. You will have a room in a fabulous farmhouse located high above Lake Garda. With a car and a map you have your pick of dining down by the  lake, touring the vineyards, sauntering through ancient formal gardens, or simply sipping your cappuccino in a local café in hopes of bumping into that special someone.

Italy

Under The Tuscan Sun

Want to slow down, bask in the Tuscan sun at a grand estate where rooms have fireplaces and you can laze about in the pool? Try the Relais Guado al Sole Agriturismo in Pomarance. You’ll be living the dream and rejuvenating the soul. From this base, tour the land so loved by novelists, painters, nature lovers and food aficionados. The village of Pomarance is ideally located in the heart of Tuscany, close to the historic town of Siena as well as within striking distance of the seacoast.

A Day In Venice

One of the best reasons to visit Venice is for immersion into the exquisite world of interior design. If you yearn to shop and bring home fabulous treasures, plan on stopping at the following: the Fortuny Museum to view legendary Mariano Fortuny’s luxurious fabrics, then head over to the Fortuny Showroom store to shop for fabrics and pillows; hand blown extravagant chandeliers and glass wear favored by interior designers can be found when you visit the colorful Murano Glass Factory; and for world famous linens make sure to visit Frette.

Venice tour

Art Lover’s Rome

Take a tour of the magnificent Palazzo Doria Pamphiljwith the special audio created by one of the owners. This hidden gem is off the tourist track and filled with a marvelous art collection. One of the most impressive art collections in the world resides within Vatican City. Make sure to book a full tour with a guide to make the most of your visit. And then, walk with an art map which is available from the tourist office, because much of the city’s most loved art is free to view—located in churches, restaurants, galleries, on walls, and in the many splendid fountains and statues decorating this city of art.

Rome

Cooking With Nonna

For centuries Italy’s nonnas, Italian grandmothers, have passed on the secrets of Italian cooking. And the joy for us is just how many cooking classes with nonnas you can join in Italy when you visit. One of the most noted of them all is found in Tuscany in the village of Montefollonico, called Tuscan Women Cook. Classes include visits to open air markets, vineyards, dinners together and a stay in a local farmhouse. You’ll be rolling out your own fresh pasta before you know it!

Shop Till You Drop In Florence

Florence is where you will satisfy your urge for owning soft Italian leather purses, gloves, and belts. The Santa Croce neighborhood is where to head for a full day of boutique shopping where local craftsmen create handcrafted leather goods to die for. If perfume is what you are after, you will thrill to the scents found at Officina Profumo Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella. The fragrances are derived from original recipes created by monks. And located all along one of the most picturesque bridges in Italy, the Ponte Vecchio, is the gold jewelry district, filled with tiny boutiques selling hand made mosaic jewelry as well as traditional Italian gold jewelry.

Once you begin with these few suggestions, you will begin compiling your own list. Traveling to these destinations will open a world of possibilities to you for future trips.
