What's not included:
*Airfare, lunches and dinners eaten in restaurants not included in the Escape, trip insurance. *Your personal favorite wine during included dinners. * Shipping costs to send those gorgeous ceramics you purchased back to the States. *A porter to carry your luggage up and down all the STEPS. STEPS! This area of the coast is very steep and this Escape will involve a lot of walking. There are many steps, and the terrain is very hilly. You will want to have really good, broken-in walking shoes. No fancy-dancy high heels necessary! The guests enjoying this type of trip the most will be fit and active in their regular lifestyle at home.
Transportation: We'll be using the readily available local transportation ( bus, boat, taxi when needed)
Let's cut up in the kitchen! Sandi McMichael and I have both had cooking classes in Italy, Sandi has a food blog, I've been hanging out in a restaurant in Tuscany for four years, and we want to cook for you. You are welcome to cook with us, or simply wait and eat!
Who is Sandi? Sandi McMichael has been my help-mate, best friend, cheerleader, and hand-holder-when-needed for my Tuscany Escapes for years. I'm so happy we'll be in Positano together, as we both love it. Her beautiful smile and positive attitude have doubled the fun we have on the Escapes. She's a food blogger, intrepid traveler, a great cook, and a joy to have with us.
