San Fedele, Rada in Chianti, Tuscany

JazZenJourney Italy still has some rooms available - Travel to the heart of Italy, to Borgo San Fedele, a restored 12th century monastery nestled in the green and rolling hills of Tuscany, where all of your needs are met … where time falls away and there is only now … where the wine flows and food is plentiful.

JazZenJourney, Italy is an immersion into the Tuscan landscape, an inspirational sojourn for body, mind, and soul ... with quiet morning meditations, world-class jazz performances each evening, gourmet cuisine, day trips to hilltop villages, local artisans and vineyards, picnics in olive groves, frescoed chapels, and much more..
