It’s hard to believe that it’s been 15 years since I first fell head over heels for Liv Tyler in Stealing Beauty. I’m not joking when I say she is the great equalizer — both girls and boys adore her; she’s so whip smart and gorgeous that it seems practically impossible that she could have spawned from Steven Tyler. In Stealing Beauty, she plays an innocent 19-year-old who spends a soul-searching summer in Italy, and I can’t help but wish I could tag along. — Amy M.

Watching her split her time between a rustic artist’s villa and an equally stunning ancient mansion, I have never dreamed more about running about in Italy. Olive groves, farm tables alfresco, wildflower bouquets, long floral dresses, stone houses and the most beautiful swimming pool I’ve ever seen. Even some of the scandalous scenes (and there are quite a few) add to the dreamy summer-fling feeling. And really, when Tuscany is involved, it’s kind of a no-brainer.
