Building a Personal Legacy

July 9 - 16, 2017

 

Spend six luxurious days in the rolling, vine-clad hills of Tuscany on an intimate and balanced wellness journey inspired by the rich legacy of Tuscany, steeped in indulgent self-care as you experience exclusive culinary excursions.

In My Footsteps Journey

Experience authentic Tuscany on this intimate Blue Zaria journey, designed to accommodate 12- 15 women in a splendid idyllic castle, nestled in a secret valley in the Tuscan hills. Enjoy a fabulous wine and wellness experience as you spend your days sipping wine, eating pasta, and indulging in self-care Italian style. Partake in pasta-making classes with Michelin-starred Italian chef; learn to make risotto and traditional Tuscan dishes from scratch-using local vegetables, meat, and cheeses. Soak in the pleasures of Tuscan wine and gastronomy while actively restoring balance to your body, mind and soul on this sinfully indulgent Italian journey.
