cortona_65Cortona is the jewel of medieval Tuscan hill towns. Ideally situated two hours north of Rome and 90 minutes south of Florence, Cortona is well known from the best-selling book and movie, “Under the Tuscan Sun.”

The road up to Cortona winds through olive groves, vineyards, and farmhouses and arrives at the entrance of the town’s ancient walls. The view of the valley below is one of the most spectacular in all of Italy, stretching out to Lake Trasimeno, Montepulciano and beyond.


cortona_57Along with museums, churches and other historical sights, Cortona offers a wealth of good restaurants, cafes, shops and entertainment. The town has retained its local, historical character without selling out to trinket and souvenir shops that dominate so many other Italian towns.





bali_16The island of Bali lies directly north of Australia and forms part of the archipelago that is the country of Indonesia. Its luscious valleys, beautiful beaches, and serene mountains make Bali’s landscape one-of-a-kind.

Geographically small but culturally grand, Bali has fascinated and influenced visitors for centuries. Combining elements of Hinduism and Buddhism with earlier animist beliefs, Balinese religion pervades all aspects of everyday life. Every human activity, from rice growing to massive temple ceremonies, is approached


with ritual and reverence. Balinese performing arts occupy a central place in the life of every village, and continue to inspire artists and students of culture around the world.
