Hiking the Dolomites hut-to-hut. If you love the outdoors and don’t mind sleeping on a wooden cot in a refugio, you will thank me later! A trek though this mountain range in Northern Italy - about an hour-and-a-half of Cortina d’ Ampezzo – is right out of Lord of the Rings, the via ferrata (old wartime climbing routes) are breathtaking and the food is incredible (I have no idea how the Italians transport their fresh pasta thousands of feet up a mountain). Plus, you won’t gain weight as you’ve hiked it all off!
Romancing on the Amalfi Coast. It’s impossible to get into a fight with a loved one when you spend time in a cliffside hotel overlooking the sea on the Amalfi Coast on the Meditteranean side of Italy. Warning: Drink Limoncello after you’ve taken that windy route up to Ravello. Otherwise, you may be pulling over... and it’s not to ask for directions!
