Discussion & Dinner: Planned Tuscan Adventure! Cultural & Culinary Agrotourismo

Join us for dinner and a talk about our 6 Day, fall trip to Tuscany (September 14 - 21).

Your co-host, Elaine and Rome Native/San Diegan, Laura Bianconcini of Exclusively Italian, are taking 15 lucky travelers to stay in the Tuscan countryside. Our home base will be private apartments in the midst of a family run organic olive grove and vineyard.

(That's Laura on the left, with Stefania who runs the Agrotourismo farm.)

Elaine will be offering morning gentle Yoga classes before our farmhouse, buffet breakfasts. Laura will be escorting us on day tours to Perugia, Sienna, Montepulciano and a Lake Trasmieno boat ride; as well as cooking classes, wine-olive-cheese tastings, a chocolate tour and time to shop and explore independently.

In the meantime you can learn more about Laura in this interview from the Womens Radio Network or read more here about the trip.

This is being promoted through several meetups: Travel Well, Travel Buddies and Career Breaks.

Ciao, Elaine J. Masters

      I love Il Fornaio as well but it doesn't work with a speaker or slide show unfortunately.

    This sounds like a wonderful seminar! It seems many of our members are requesting these more in the North County area.

    Location is too far away from 7:30 Italian class!

    March 4, 2013

  • Elaine J M.

    We've set the location: Lorna's Italian Kitchen. Not hard to get to from most directions in our large county - west of the 805 and north of the 52 in University City. RSVP for space and please note, there's a delicious menu and the restaurant has a $10 minimum.

    North County is ideal for me too...otherwise work obligations may make it difficult to get to SD. Looking forward to meeting everyone.

    I would appreciate N. County as well . . .Ciccotti's in Cardiff is easy access and a small authentic restaurant

    I am in North County so something closer this way would be nice. Il Fornaio sounds perfect.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
