Your 9-Day Itinerary at a Glance:
Take a look and see what's in store for you…

Depart from The United States via the Airline Courier of your Choice. We spend a day in the air as we change time zones.

Florentine style and grandeur,
with a modern touch...

WELCOME to Italy! Fly into Peretola Airport, located in Florence. It is one of the two main airports in the Tuscany region.

Check into The Borghese Palace Art Hotel in Downtown Florence. The Borghese Hotel is a beautifully restored noble residence on a historical site. It is known for fusing the old world with the new as it meshes it's ancient walls with contemporary art and furniture.

The Borghese Palace Art Hotel occupies a wing of a grand, neo-classical palazzo on one of Florence's oldest streets. This boutique hotel offers a unique and sophisticated mix of the old-world charm of a historic Florentine palazzo and an appreciation of modern style, as is evident in its recently remodeled rooms, one-off designer decorated bedrooms, and the many original contemporary works of art on display on the premises. A perfect place for the hotel's monthly art exhibitions by international artists.

Depending on your time of arrival, the rest of the day is at your leisure to settle in, relax and begin exploring the city, maybe even do a little shopping. In the evening, enjoy a Welcome Dinner with your hosts and traveling buddies at a local favorite restaurant.

Rendezvous with history in Florence – Borghese Palace Art is located in the very center of old Florence, just a few blocks from the magnificent Duomo of Florence and the prestigious Palazzo Medici-Riccardi, and a 5-minute walk away from the most important museums of the city. The Accademia where the David resides and The Uffizi, which is to Florence what the Louvre is to Paris … where one can admire, among thousands, masterpieces such as Michelangelo Buonarroti's David and Botticelli's Primavera, each of which could alone justify a trip to Italy.

Sorprese! Sorprese! Sorprese! in store for you once you arrive.

“Each day will feature a Meditation Session with intention setting to get grounded for the day's adventure as it relates to the activity at hand.”

FLORENCE - Spend the day walking downtown Florence, experiencing the local culture and fabulous shopping. A knowledgeable guide will take you around town and show you the living history and the culture alive in Florence. Micaela will take you to some of her favorite and secret stores, as well as to a private rowing club where you will have lunch by the river and meet the locals. Visit museums and artisan laboratories and learn how to make a mosaic and a handbag in the same day!

MEDIOEVO - Our third day is a full day visiting the medieval towns of Siena, San Giminiano and Monteriggioni. Situated on a dramatic cliff-top location with views of the Tuscan Chianti side, we will have the opportunity to walk along the ancient walls of the city and dress in medieval armor. Monteriggioni's walls and the buildings that make up the town within are the best-preserved examples of their kind in all of Italy, attracting tourists, architects, medieval historians and archaeologists. The town appears to float above the valley at night, due to the hillside walls and towers being lit from below.

AMORE RETREAT! The most stunning of castles in Florence, Castel di Poggio welcomes us for a private all-day event.

We’ll take a tour of the Castel, which will leave you feeling as if you were in the medieval times. This spectacular castle will leave you breathless with its intricate and well-crafted architecture in the gorgeous country setting.

Then we will luxuriate in giving our Inner Selves, the royal treatment. We will gather in the Amore Circle and share from our hearts gifting each person with many of life's secrets. Gifts that can change your life and those around you. Gifts that are ways to putting the best version of you forward. The process we will be doing is an experiential and interactive one that supports each person in the circle to step into the higher version of themselves, releasing any blocks and limitations.

We'll end our afternoon like royalty with a delicious Italian dinner at one of Micaela’s favorite restaurants!

Our hearts will feel even more fulfilled as we culminate this night. This Castle is owned by a private foundation where our patronage will help support orphanages in Africa and other countries. What a beautiful way to Love, to be the Amore spirit.

GIORNO ALLA MODA - A Day of Fashion to shop Italian style at world class designer stores like Gucci, Yves Saint Laurent, Prada, Pucci, Armani, Ferragamo and many more. There are two main Florence outlet and many private outlets sponsored by the biggest labels where you can shop with savings of up to 70%. You will enjoy the Florence outlets and the amazing shopping experience they has to offer, an exciting journey into the world of Italian Haute Couture.

BELLEZZA E RELAX - One full day of indulgence at The Terme. You will be treated to a deluxe spa package of indulgence with full access to the outdoor pool. The Terme is an old farm house which dates back to the seven hundreds. This majestic home was finely restored without altering its unique dimensions and original characteristics, while adding rich innovations and fascinating novelties which provide elements of notable quality. This luxury SPA Hotel in Tuscany can be defined as being the very first real “beauty farm.” The Terme’s main farmhouse is, in fact, surrounded by other old homes, which today have become splendid residences ready to meet any type of necessity for those exigent guests who love Tuscany and Italy, luxury and classic hotels and spa resorts.

Spend a part of your day at a second Spa relaxing by the natural hot spring pool where you can relax, meditate, and rejuvenate. Or just relax in the garden of the 13th Century villa which you have called home, adorned in typical old world style, you can experience what it was like living in the Italian era, living like a Lady or Lord.

Spend the night at a family owned organic winery where we will have a cooking class and learn how to make authentic Italian food...oh, yes, we will eat it as well!

VINO - Wake up at the winery where we will have a private lunch and a tour of the vinyard as well as learn how organic wine is made. The vinyard is one of 11 Carmignano wine vinyards and one of the only ones that produces organic wine in the area. The wine is produced in limited quantity and is of high esteem and exclusiveness due to the way it is produced.

You will also visit the regal palace of Poggio a Caiano “Villa Ambra” and visit Leonardo da Vinci’s hometown of Vinci and witness some of his historic inventions.

After an amazing final day at the winery, we will go back into town for our final dinner together at the most famous restaurant in Florence owned by an old family friend.

The after dinner Italian goodbye might be a tearful one!
The incredible bonding, the new friends, the adventures and experiences make leaving a place so tough. But the memories will last a lifetime ... There's nothing else like Italia and the Amore! Retreat.

Arrivederci! Depart from Florence for your homebound flight that arrives the same day. You will take with you fond memories, images of the beautiful scenery and the many Momentos you found along the way.

(Please note that travel will be 9 days as we lose a day in departure.)
