Some of her recommendations include a cashmere blanket for a romantic picnic in the vineyards, a yoga outfit for a relaxing practice in one of the most peaceful settings in the world and, always, a comfortable pair of walking shoes for excursions through Tuscany’s incomparable countryside.
“Italy is unlike any other place in the world, and you simply can’t find the quality of life that exists here anywhere else,” says Dello Russo. “Tuscany is particularly special to me as a place to find inspiration and relax. The landscape is so beautiful that even a quiet walk through the countryside is a truly mesmerizing experience.”
In addition to her favorite activities throughout the rural setting, Dello Russo offers her advice on memorable daytrips that visitors can take to nearby cities such as Florence and Siena, including discovering authentic artisanal laboratories, touring the historical centers, and viewing breathtaking landmarks such as the Piazza del Campo.
