At Women Who Wander, we believe in investing in experiences over things. Our story began with a simple idea: to connect women seeking adventure, mindful connection, and life-changing travel experiences. We believe travel is better together, and our mission is to bring women together through unique, curated trips around the globe. Ready to satisfy your Wanderlust?
Women Who Wander was founded in 2019 by Elspeth Brotherton and Sara Rossi, both curious travelers who believe that new experiences can be a powerful force for change and self-discovery. Elspeth and Sara share a love of yoga and wellness, adventure, and connecting with other like-minded women.

Join Elspeth and Sara for a curated adventure in Italy! We will begin our journey in the eternal city (Rome), spending a few days exploring the city by foot (and Vespa!). Enjoy tours of Rome's historical sites and museums, and dine and shop at local favorites off the beaten path. We then make our way to the Salento, the southern tip of Italy's Puglia region, arriving in the town of the masterpieces of the Baroque architecture, Lecce. Our tour of the boot will include morning yoga, olive oil tastings, horseback riding, cliff diving, seriously tempting food and wine and tours of old towns along the coast. On our final day, we will travel back to Rome for a goodbye dinner overlooking the city.
