I love the history and architecture of the cities but also love to be by the sea as I find it very relaxing. I have visited Tuscany many times and love the mix of cities, rural villages, and seaside towns you find there, and the food is amazing. Sharing my knowledge with customers and seeing what they enjoyed most after the holiday is the cherry on top.
