"Women love Italy because Italy loves women," says award winning author Susan Van Allen, who has been traveling there for 40 years. "Golden weeks are transformational experiences," she adds. "When women land in a country that's been adoring females since the earth was cooling—from Goddess Venus to the Madonna--they feel as though they've come home, to a place where they are deeply appreciated and understood."
Golden Weeks are perfect for solo travelers, girlfriend getaways, and mother/daughter vacations. Having led these trips for five successful years, Van Allen says, "I know exactly what women want. They lead busy lives and often do all the planning, so it's a joy for them to leave that to me, and indulge in a perfect balance of planned activities and opportunities for them to explore according to their desires. Everything goes at a leisurely pace, so there's time to fully absorb Italian treasures, get to know my local friends, and stop to taste the Prosecco."
The Golden Week is a collaboration with Perillo Tours, America's leading tour operator to Italy.
