Win a Week in Tuscany or A Set of Seven Italy Travel Books

News of two fantastic Italy travel giveaways crossed my desk today and I wanted to let you know about them so you can enter to win. Who couldn’t use a week in Tuscany or a stack full of wonderful Italy travel books? is giving away a week in a two-bedroom apartment at Al Gelso Bianco, a wine and olive producing estate in the heart of Chianti. The estate is set in a superb, much-sought after location for regional sightseeing with easy access to Florence, Siena and San Gimignano. The week is available in April or October 2011.
