Perfect Girls getaway

A trip of a lifetime! You will be treated to the very best kind of vacation - one where someone else worries about the details.  We've done all the work so you can have all the fun.  We will show you  things you've only dreamed about.  Imagine lingering over long lunches in the Tuscan hills, wandering the streets of quaint little villages, staring in awe at the majesty of the many churches, or winding down at the end of the night on your apartment terrace with a bottle or two of wine reliving the magic of the day. The memories will last forever!

Art for the joy of it

Discover your


Passion for Italy

Bethany Ekblad is passionate about all things Italy.  Over the course of her many trips to italy, she has developed a deep love for the beauty of the art and countryside, the deep traditions, the friendly people, and the relaxed way of life.  Her passion spills out into every aspect of the trip.  It's infectious.  You can't help but fall in love too.

Fantastic Food & Wine

Enjoy fabulous food and wine at our favorite restaurants and wineries.  We have spent several years finding the best places to go in the region.  The highlight is as authentic as it gets.....a 5 course dinner in the home of an Italian grandma.  Spectacular!!  Buon Appetito! 

See the masterpieces of the great Renaissance artists.  Works by Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo and Raphael among others are scattered throughout the great Tuscan cities we will visit.  Visit several magnificent churches that will leave you breathless.

Enjoy your own bedroom in our beautiful, authentic Italian apartments!  The apartments in Florence are perfectly situated across the Arno river, just outside of the main tourist area.  This provides a much more authentic experience as you walk among the locals.  The apartments at our Tuscan estate, are as charming as can be.  You will never want to leave.
