1st Day at the Villa / by Mark Nunneley

Villa Lucia where we are staying is in Chianti which is the heart of Italy's most famous wine region.  Undulating hills blanketed with vineyards, groves of silver-green olive trees, and enchanting towns perched on hilltops are the essence.

Silver-green olive trees everywhere

Cypress-lined roads all over Chianti
