Add to that $597 per person including taxes for two nights at the Villa Vecchia, $303 per person including taxes for four nights at La Fattoria degli Usignoli, and $263 per person including taxes for two nights at the Park Hotel Bolognese, and you're spending $2,133 on airfare and accommodation alone.
