weather in Milan for an Italian class in traditional Lime Paint,
and shopping at Designer Malls, is comfortably warm in mid October, as
the afternoon temperature averages around 65 degrees. Traveling
by train to the Tuscan Village of Lucca and touring historical
villa's for a relaxing week of visual insight allows us an in
depth Italian experience.
get to Tuscany, we need to fly into Milan, then travel to Lucca, and
a shuttle bus for a 30 minute drive through the
hills to Villa La Cappella. Day trips are planned visiting
historical Villas around this Tuscany area. Then enjoy
the train again, and after a night at the Opera, we returned through Rome and back to the
Villa Cappella, an old Monastery built in the 1600's and recently
renovated is positioned with a panoramic view of the old Roman "Via
Francigena" passage from France and Spain to Rome. The
villa has three floors, and is a perfect size for our group of
15. A large panoramic pool is set on a lower terrace with views
of terraced gardens and traditional Tuscany atmosphere. We will
be touring 3 Tuscany Villa's during our week there.
