A villa in Tuscany is the perfect destination for celebrating with a group. Spend your days tasting wines at the local wineries.  Learn to cook local delicacies with private cooking classes for your group.  Relax in a local thermal bath and soak up the health benefits.  It may possibly be the secret to staying young but definitely an experience to ensure your birthday is unique.  Consider booking a private driver to ensure this birthday experience is relaxing for everyone.
