Elizabeth is very excited to be accompanying a culinary week in May 2015!
a day excursion to the wine towns of Montalcino and Montepulciano & the cheese town of Pienza
Two women leaving soft footprints through city streets, country roads, and green mountain paths. Two friends with backgrounds in Fine Art Restoration and Art History who share an appreciation for simple pleasures and a passion for introducing others to Florence and beyond.
