Do you love to go wine tasting? Have you experienced the wonderful wine tours in Italy yet? You may be aware that Italy produces more wine than any other country in the world. Furthermore, the best vineyard hotels are in Tuscany, which produced almost 3 million hectoliters of wine in 2015 alone.
If you’re planning a trip abroad in the near future, what activities besides wine tours are at the top of your list? A romantic stay inside the walls of a traditional Italian villa, perhaps?
When it comes to romantic getaways, Priceline.com’s 2016 “Traveler’s Sweet Spot” survey showed that both women and men agree that vacations with a bit of romance are always the best. While 34% of women shared that they believed these were the best types of vacations, it’s interesting to note that a few more men agreed with this at 38%.
While you’re enjoying a romantic interlude, don’t be surprised to return home engaged. In this case, you may want to plan to have a destination wedding at a romantic hotel in Italy. The Knot’s 2016 “Real Weddings Study” showed that destination weddings were being planned by 20% of their participants. If you haven’t decided whether you want a destination wedding, you may definitely know that you want to honeymoon in Tuscany.
In addition to creating an opportunity for romance, people also choose to travel for a variety of other reasons. As a result, many travelers are willing to pay more for specific experiences and activities. TripBarometer, for instance, reports that travelers are happy to spend more money in order to enhance their experience in these ways:
- Sightseeing: 53%
- Special dining: 41%
- Accommodations: 41%
- Activities: 35%
- Shopping: 24%
Millennial travelers, in particular, prefer spending their money on experiences. The survey showed that 60% choose experience over shopping for material objects. Tuscany wine tours may be at the top of these Millennials’ list of experiences.
Are you planning to schedule a few trips this year? A recent AAA study showed that 70% of families are planning to travel together at least once or twice during 2017. When traveling in Tuscany, it’s good to know that there are family-friendly resorts with activities for children of all ages.
Whether you traveling solo, with a romantic partner, or with a combination of family and friends, consider all that Tuscany has to offer. Just imagine how wonderful it will be to relax within peaceful, scenic surroundings. Reference links. More like this blog.
