"I searched throughout Italy to find quintessential locations that embody romance through their setting,
architecture, and history. In each chapter, you will find places where you can enjoy a romantic stay, hold a wedding, or spend an evening dining with someone you love. You can amble through an enchanting contessa's garden, sleep in a medieval hamlet
where Dante once found refuge, or celebrate an evening with friends in the wisteria-filled courtyard of an ancient olive mill. I hope this hand-picked collection will inspire the romantic in you."
