Member Monday: Members Celebrate 25 Years of Amore in Italy

Wedding anniversaries don’t get much more romantic than Italy, which is why Global Discovery Vacations member Scottie M. and his wife spent a week at the Fattoria Guicciardini located in San Gimignano, Siena. Located near historic landmarks such as Piazza Sant’ Agostino and the medieval gate of San Matteo, hear what caught Scottie’s eye in this week’s Member Monday.

Where would you recommend a fellow member to go to…
Eat
Out of the way places or the first one you come to. It was always a delight.

Shop
Open air markets were the most fun but, some smaller shops had awesome sales.

Have fun/attractions
The beaches and seaside towns of Italy were mostly active and pleasantly easy to get to.
