What's not included:
Airfare, lunches and dinners eaten in restaurants not included in the Escape, trip insurance (highly recommended).
Your personal favorite wine during included dinners.
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. The guests enjoying this type of trip the most will be fit and active in their regular lifestyle at home.
Transportation: No rental car needed!
Let's cut up in the kitchen! Sandi McMichael and I have had numerous cooking classes in Italy, and we will share what we’ve learned with you. Sandi has a food blog, I've been hanging out in a restaurant in Tuscany for five years, and we love to cook. You are welcome to cook with us, or simply wait and eat! The kitchen will be available and stocked with goodies for snacks for you to enjoy on your own as well.
Who is Sandi? Sandi McMichael has been my help-mate, best friend, cheerleader, and hand-holder-when-needed for my Escapes for years. I'm so happy we'll be in Positano together again, 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.
