There is beauty in the wind as it rushes over the Mediterranean Sea. It settles on the villages of the Amalfi Coast before picking up history and grandeur on the banks of the Tiber. It moves over the graceful and fertile fields of Tuscany, suffused with the scent of grapes and filled with the myths and legends of this timeless terra before filling Florence with artistic inspiration. It is the wind that will carry you across Italy… and into the vacation of your dreams.
