This woman is excited to be revisiting Venice soon. I'll have to admit to bringing the husband along, but only to pay for all the glass beads and delicious food!

Hurray for the Gift Pack Drawing!

Everyone--man or woman--should visit Rome, definitely my favorite destination!

I loved Luca!! The walk around the wall is soul-filling.

Bella Tuscany! Food, wine, and architecture, unrivaled!

How wonderful to hear all this love for Italy!
I do believe it may have been especially created for us gals!

Bella Capri! There are so many captivating places and sights on this island that it's not to be missed. Not to mention the fabulous food and wine.

I have never been to Italy but definitely want to visit Positano above all of many places there, for the water, beautiful landscape, the food and the lemons. Loved it in Under the Tuscan Sun.

Every woman should go to those beautiful nameless places throughout Italy that surprise you--the ones that take your breath away.

The bend in the road that leads to an ochre-colored landscape lined with twin rows of cypress trees.

The narrow alleyway with fresh-washed laundry strung above your head that takes you to a charming square that beckons you to linger for the afternoon.

The neighborhood cafe where children laugh and their parents enjoy their vino and their life.

Every woman must go to these beautiful nameless places in Italy that invite you to be part of la dolce vita.

I'm taking the chicken way out and saying "all of it" (since I've never been. How can you choose just one? I'd love to spend a month in Tuscany, another in Rome, visit Venice ... well ... the whole thing. :)

Just one place!? I loved Capri. 5 hour lunches, gelato, long walks, the sea and clifs. Amazing. For a little while you can pretend to by a jetsetter or movie star. I went in the Spring, before the tourists and it was perfect.
