The charming and rarely-visited territory of Mugello lies above Florence in the northernmost part of the Tuscany region in Italy. With its open plains, rolling hills, and gentle mountains in the distance, the nature of this area offers a Tuscan “dolcezza”, or sweetness, that calms your worries and rejuvinates your spirit!
Coronavirus calls us to honor our elders. Last week, I wrote about the cultural consequence of losing so many elders who carry the stories and traditions that make Italy so special. Just a week later, we're facing the same fate here in the US.
As the founder of Creative Edge Travel, I want to take a moment to mourn those who we’ve lost to the virus in Italy, and those throughout the world. Along with these grandfathers and grandmothers (mostly), we've also lost ages of culture, tradition, and history. Our elders throughout the world are key to our diverse cultures and maintaining their strength and wisdom, and so this comes as a great cultural consequence.
This hidden place is only about an hour's drive from Florence, and the crowd is about 90% local Italians, so you can avoid mass tourism and truly feel the genuine culture. Welcome to the Middle Ages!
You’ve imagined a perfect journey, complete with trying all those great wines you’ve read about but never seem to find in your local wine shop. You’ve triple checked your packing list and triple checked all the logistics. What could go wrong, right?
