Headphones off! Have you heard about the Lucca Summer Festival? It’s an annual event in Tuscany. The 2022 lineup features John Legend, Justin Bieber, Alison Krauss, Paolo Conte, Liam Gallagher and Ben Harper (just to name a few). Music inspires us to laugh, sing along, and connect with strangers (gasp!). That’s what good summers are made of. Still plenty of time to plan for next year, now.


You need to bookmark the eatery called Armando al Pantheon if you have plans to head to Rome. Traditional Roman dishes are served steps from the Pantheon. In operation since the 60’s it’s a staple in this delicious city. I love sticking to the traditional places and trying anything regional. Who else wishes they delivered their spaghetti al tartufo nero in the mail?


Perched on the shores of one of south Sardinia’s most stunning beaches, Il Castello is on the grounds of a luxe resort that will have you zenned out in no time.The rooms blend with nature – you can be cozy in your bed and sun drenched at the same time. And the verandas? There’s a private infinity pool as well as access to Acquaforte Thalasso Spa. If you haven’t heard of thalassotherapy-it’s a soothing treatment that uses seawater for detoxification and rejuvenation. After your full body mud mask and saltwater hydrotherapy, stop in at the ayurvedic park nestled in the quietest corner of the gardens.
