A commitment you will NOT regret. I went in May and absolutely loved it. You not only learn a lot from Chef Jean Luc, but you will have a lot of just plain FUN! Do not worry about travelling by yourself. There were four "travel alone woman" in my group of ten and due in large part to the great group facilitators and in part to the face that
you will find that the group as a whole is very inclusive and without doubt, there will be other woman travelling alone. I envy you! I wish I hadn't gone, so I could go in October. You will absolutely love it and my best to Christina!

Travelling from Tampa to Gatwick to Pisa on the 19th-20th of May by myself. This is my first Road Scholar, but have been to Lucca several times (short terms). It's an interesting city and I love, love, love the markets and walking around the wall! Food is excellent. Tuscany is Gorgeous in May. Wish I had thought to extend a couple of days oh well and stayed in Sienna, but maybe next Time!
