Can I ask you a personal favor?

The American Presidential family, Michelle and Barack Obama will be in Italy on 27 March 2014. Could you help me in offering our president of the Tuscany region the most compelling places to visit?

I’d like to have your suggestions and you can help me through a short survey on my blog.

Hope you are all having an amazing week! Just got back from my NYC adventures and will be sending to scoop out soon … Thanks in advance for taking the time to help me out. I truly do appreciate you!
