Belvedere Sunrise , San Quirico D'Orcia, Tuscany

    TUSCANY... old world Italy at its finest.  Misty shadows slow-dancing across quiet green valleys at sunrise. Walled medieval villages that sit high on hilltops overlooking the vineyards and olive groves that grace this beautiful land. An endless array of Tuscan portals - doors, windows, and streets adorned with flowers through the pride of its loyal residents. And the quintessential cypress trees identify postcard scenes that we will view. You will be guided to ancient hilltop villages such as Montepulciano, Pienza, San Quirico, Monticchiello, Montalcino, Siena, San Gimignano and other unique landscape gems there. Our home base in Tuscany is  Podere Spedalone (click on its link in the page menu above), where Alessandro and the team will welcome and pamper our group in an ancient working farmhouse called an agriturismo. Each day in between our morning & evening hilltown excursions, you will have the opportunity to relax poolside, freshen up, or catch a quick nap , before we explore the late afternoon in another hilltown choice, &  the sunset "golden hours." 

    IRELAND... more shades of green than you ever thought possible. Stunning shorelines with crashing surf,  historic castles, the Cliffs of Moher & The Burren, Kylemore Abbey, and  unforgettable evenings at wonderful Irish Pubs where the lively Trad Music seems to have ALL inside smiling & carefree !  The Irish humor & dialect in the small villages is a JOY to listen to..... the "Gift of Gab" fer sure ! For cinema fans, we will stop in Cong, the original small town shooting location of "the Quiet Man", and visit the Pat Cohan Bar where pictures on the wall show that John Wayne argued & fought over Maureen O'Hara there. THAT little hard-to-find hamlet has Incredibly Beautiful scenery; a true Gem.  The Irish food flavors will delight also with Guiness Beef Stew,  Lamb Shank, FRESH fish selections, and you can NOT pass up their pies & desserts. Our over-the-top frendly BnB Hosts will make you feel like family with their best china laid out & HOT breakfast selections. And listen closely as the locals say after a great Pub & Music night out ... "The Craic was mighty, twas a whale of a time ! "
