I’d like to surprise my wife for our 50th with a trip to Italy in September. Do you have any recommendations on a great RCI affiliated resort to visit? In addition, I’d be interested in any overall suggestions you might have for visiting Italy in September. Thanks.

On a trip to Europe I doubt I would ever use a timeshare. I want to see as much as possible in the time I have so I would airbnb or hotel it and move every 3-4 days. I often steal itinerary ideas from tours. They give you a good idea how much time you need in each area. On my own I might need another day in each because I would not be nearly as efficient at getting all of the connections to work and avoiding the lineups at attractions. Can you rent out a timeshare during a prime week to help offset accommodation costs?
You sound like a great husband!

HGVC has Borgo All Vigne in Tuscany outside of Pisa. RCI code D593. May be difficult to find though.

A beautiful time to be there. Do the Amalfi Coast, 4 nights Sorrento and 3 nights Ravello and 1 night Naples before flying home.

I took my other half to Villagio L'olivera near Tropea (RCI# 3248). Rustic property with AMAZING views and so much to do in the area. Far enough south to still be warm in September. Buffer the rusticity with a night or two at a nice city hotel in/ near Naples or Sicily. The Hilton Sorrento Palace works well for this purpose.

Airbnb and VRBO are excellent in Europe. It’s the best way to see the country. Cheaper as well


This ^^^^^.

Done it all over Europe. This is the best strategy for Europe. Stay exactly where you want to be. NOT outside in the forest somewhere, unless that's what you want.
