Live Tuscan is an opportunity for
for you to experience the sweet, slow
rhythm that is life in Tuscany, Italy.

As the daughter of parents who wanted to see everything the world has to offer, I have been traveling extensively from a very young age.  I have had the opportunity to live in Europe, work for an international airline, and I have a close family history that links me forever to the beautiful country of Italy.  LiveTuscan operates between Washington D.C. and Cortona, Italy. My maternal Grandfather was born and raised in Rome, and my maternal Grandmother from Sulmona, about 2 hours east of the Eternal City.

I was raised with an appreciation and passion for all things Italian, and want to share this beautiful country with everyone.  My first love was the city of Rome, but after multiple trips to Florence and the surrounding hill towns I became so enchanted with the Tuscan countryside that I chose it for the home-base of LiveTuscan.

Enjoy a week-long stay in and around beautiful Cortona, Italy, home of the book and film Under the Tuscan Sun.  My wonderful team and I will arrive at the beautiful villa to prepare for your arrival and to warmly welcome you to your new home. We remain with you as an in-home concierge, taking care of all of your requests or concerns, making this the perfect trip for both first-time and seasoned travelers.

Enjoy a cooking class, taught by professional teachers experienced in the regional cuisine; hand crafted meals, exclusive tours, and a stay in a luxury villa.  Attention to detail and impeccable service is what you can expect at Live Tuscan. We have the highest standards, and each day our goal is to surpass any expectations that our guests might have.  We truly enjoy making people happy!  You will be treated to a week of beauty, culture, food and you will leave having lived like a Tuscan fully for a short time.

“I can’t even begin to say how wonderful our time was with Becky and our Live Tuscan family. Everything was great….the surroundings were beautiful, the villa was incredible, and the food was absolutely amazing. Our guides were knowledgeable and delightful people who clearly enjoyed sharing their knowledge with us. The wines were fantastic. Best of all were the new friends we made the week in Tuscany. It was a magical time. I can’t say enough good things about this trip..”

“An absolute amazing experience! Becky is so great! Each day was filled with trips around Tuscany with great tour guides that made the trip even better. The food, of course, is AMAZING. The week I had with Live Tuscan was one of the best trips I’ve made to Europe. Definitely a MUST vacation (maybe every year!) Thanks Becky for an incredible trip!”

Just returned from a fabulous trip to Italy. Our stay in Cortona was everything one would hope a week in a villa would be. The place is magical. Food was great, our cooking glass was a riot. Only 2 people could roll out the pici noodles, both men. Our day trips were wonderful with amazing guides who brought life to these cities. Would love to go back again and just stay at the villa. Ciao!
