If it wasn’t for Lisa I would still be dreaming of going to Italy. I too fell in love with Cortona, the beautiful countryside, the wineries, people, new and old friends, the food. It was an experience I will treasure . I will return many more times and thanks to Lisa I won’t be afraid to go alone.Kim Caufield, Oct. 2016My “ Find yourself in Tuscany “ tour was a life changing journey. I can’t say enough about my experience to this beautiful country, and all the amazing and memorable places we visited on the tour. Words could never do it justice. I am already planning my return!!Dana DelPriore, Oct. 2016”I loved everything about the October 2016 tour! I especially enjoyed meeting Lisa’s wonderful Italian friends, hearing their stories, and through them experiencing the local fare and culture. I really appreciated this meaningful and personal touch.”Sharon Hindley, Oct. 2016We are world travelers but have never been on a group tour so we were hesitant to book this trip and had very HIGH expectations. All of our expectations were far exceeded from the day we arrived to the day we left. Lisa takes care of everything so you can truly take in all of Italy with no worries. The places she takes you and the intimate conversations with the locals allows you to really see what Italy is really all about. We feel in love with the food, the people and the wine. We met amazing women on the tour who we are still in contact with today. This trip changed us and we will be forever grateful to Lisa for opening up not only our eyes but our hearts.

What an incredible, amazing trip! It exceeded my expectations by 1000%.The sites were beautiful, and I’m so happy about the wonderful friends I made. I look forward to staying in touch and seeing one another in the near future!
From start to finish the tour is handled with perfection. You are greeted by Lisa as soon as you arrive at the most charming Hotel Pierre. The tour is just the right size group of women. Lisa shares & shows you the Florence that has captured her heart. You will meet artisans and learn the history of their crafts and have an opportunity to make fabulous purchases. You will experience the finest Italian cuisine prepared by a chef Lisa knows personally. Another highlight is staying in Cortona. Lisa’s friend Alex will take you on a hiking tour of the cathedrals & provide you with the history of each one. With the personal touches, Lisa makes every day of the tour such that a person can only say, this is the better way to Italy.
I came back from this tour a different person. In relating the adventures to a friend when I came home, she commented that I sounded like a much happier person. It was in my voice as well as in the stories I told. Thank you for helping me to become that person!
“Going to Italy was always on my top 5 things I wanted to do but finding the time to do it and knowing where to go and what to do was a task.We got plenty of time to explore on our own and our group activities were truly some of the memories I will always cherish. It totally makes a difference to be guided by someone that actually lives there and speaks our language!
“Traveling to Italy has been a dream finally realized. I knew the moment this tour was created it was for me!Despite my endeavors to enroll someone else in the journey I signed up on my own. I have a young family and worried about leaving little ones behind but with the support of my sweet husband and in-laws I got to experience the trip of a lifetime!I came home with 11 new and dear friends. I experienced places that left me in constant awe. The food…oh the food and the shopping. I would have gone for just that alone!
“It is so difficult to put into words the feelings and camaraderie that were created by our unique troupe of adventurers blazing the way for Better Way to Italy. The trip on paper gets the mind buzzing…”Who else wants to experience Italy like me?” It’s as if someone read my mind…a cultural experience which is challenging and interesting with downtime for shopping, food and fun. I’m in. Whether we were meeting authors, local folks or hearing about the history of Florence from a renowned expert, the delivery and experience was engaging and riveting. The unique mix of city and country sites and the pace was perfection. After the inclusive Italian food and wine, you are whisked away each night to dream in glorious accommodations still not believing you are really there…with these tremendous people, with this much rich history, art and beauty in one ancient region of this amazing country.We were prepped with proper footwear and dressed for the weather. I am forever grateful to our gracious hostesses and their agents for their insights, knowledge and hospitality that made my first trip to Italy truly special and aptly “Better” than I had ever hoped.Just marking time until I go back!”
Grazi Lisa for the wonderful afternoon in Florence! We saw so many wonderful things with an inside perspective. You are truly an inspiration to women and everyone with a dream.Bless you on your journey. XOXOXO
“I had the most wonderful time in Italy! Florence is now one of my favorite cities anywhere! Being with a local makes all the difference in the world AND to stay in one place for days at a time is the only way to travel!Lisa made sure we saw and experienced the quaint and charming ambience of the food markets, the people, the history and Florence itself is a work of art! Our side tours were fantastic and fun and the scenery INCREDIBLE! What a wonderful, wonderful trip! I wish women everywhere could have this opportunity. The tempo was perfect, I learned so much, and the laughs and fun almost medicinal!
