Time is growing short, and there are about two-weeks left for you to sign up for our fabulous trip to Italy!

Collette Tours, has put a wonderful trip together for us. We'll have nine wonderful days in Italy during our Spotlight on Tuscany, August 24 to September 1. We'll fly out of Grand Rapids, Ford International, and be on our way to Italy to enjoy Montecatini Terme, Florence, Lucca, Siena, Pisa and San Gimignanl. We'll tour wineries, a cheese factory, the Leaning Tower of Piza, the Gothic Line, the Germans last line of defense during WWII, and so much more.

Of course, the wines, food, history and beauty of Italy will be some of the highlights. You can even take a cooking class with Italian Chef's if you like, and dine afterward on your creation with delicious wines.

Staying in the same hotel during the entire trip, the Hotel Ercolini and Savi in Montecatini, makes this vacation so relaxing and enjoyable. We'll take our trips/tours from there. Once you unpack, you don't have to pack again until the trip is finished. How nice is that.
