My obsessions-Italy and Cooking

Come To Italy With Me!


You don’t have to  wait for me to post a trip to Lucca here on my blog. Get a group together with your friends who love Italy and get in touch! Of course I plan on going to Italy every year and I do have a tour scheduled for this spring, but it’s full, with a waiting list. A  guest from an earlier tour put a group together and we are scheduled for our week in Lucca this May. I am available to return to Italy and would love to share Lucca and the Garfagnana with you.


From sightseeing, to cooking, to spending a day on a remote farm, to eating our way through Florence, this will be a week to remember.

Already been to Lucca but would like to join a Panini Girl tour? I am putting together a week based in my other favorite Tuscan town-Arezzo! Those of you who have followed my blog for a while may remember that I’ve spent time there attending language school-Cultura Italiana. I lived in this charming and very untouristy town for a month during my time attending the school. I was a neophyte in living on my own in a place where there was no one speaking English. It turned out to be just what a struggling student of the language needed to gain some confidence. I’ve been back to Arezzo a few times since then and think about it as a town where I would like to live for a year.



Arezzo is located  about 50 miles southeast of Florence, not too far from the border with Umbria. Our travels will take us out of town to the countryside south of Arezzo. If we’re lucky we may be in town for Arezzo’s monthly Antique Fair which is the largest of its kind in Italy. You never know what treasure you might find to squeeze into your suitcase…

Let’s do Italy together!  You can reach me at

  1. It sounds amazing and Arezzo is a jewel of a town. I will be in Italy for a month between late April and late May to visit my producers in Piemonte, Puglia, and Sicily. Perhaps we can join forces on one of our mutual visits.

  2. Cove Youth Band-you are a great travel accomplice!
