Christmas In Tuscany Italy

I’ve had something on my Bucket List for a very long time, and this year I get to check it off.   (A Bucket List is a list of things that one has not done before but wants to do before dying.)

My wish is to experience Christmas in another country without the commercialism and hype that we see in the United States. Quite frankly, I’m tired of blow-up snowmen displayed on lawns and the Christmas ads on TV before Halloween.

My family will be celebrating Christmas in the quaint little Italian town of Cortona, Italy. Keith, Fran, Scott and Vanessa will arrive on December 22nd along with Dawn, Jim and Casey Garrett.

Since John and I are retired, we left on November 29th and flew into Lisbon, Portugal and began a journey traveling through Spain, France and into Italy, arriving December 18 . We booked a 9- bedroom villa, Villa Luisella, for a week for all of us to enjoy together. Cortona is a town in the province of Arezzo, in Tuscany, Italy. It is the main cultural and artistic center of the Val di Chiana after Arezzo.     Discover Tuscany-Cortona

A few days after Christmas, December 29th, John and I will take a train to the Zermatt, Switzerland where John will ski and we’ll celebrate the New Year.  

We Can Never Lose Hope……
