VRBO

Kathie Lee and Hoda celebrate ten years together on TODAY at an Italian VRBO

AUSTIN, Texas, April 18, 2018 – VRBO® — the website where you can rent vacation homes, cabins and condos — worked with NBC’s TODAY to find the perfect match for Kathie Lee Gifford's and Hoda Kotb’s celebratory broadcasts. To commemorate a decade of drinking wine and laughing on-air together, America’s favorite morning show hosts are taking a trip to Italy. Their shows, broadcast from a villa overlooking Florence, Italy, will air April 23 and 24.

Villa Poggio San Felice, the 15th-century home chosen for the TODAY broadcasts, is nestled in hills dotted with summer residences built for wealthy Florentine families. The Pazzi family took ownership in the 19th century but were exiled after orchestrating a plot to assassinate the Medici family, who were rulers of Florence. The current owners open the villa for weddings and other celebrations. It is also a VRBO Premier Partner vacation home, which means travelers can rent the eight-bedroom home.

Another vacation home available to rent on VRBO will serve as a home away from home for Hoda and Kathie Lee’s biggest fans, chosen by TODAY through a video contest. The winning pair will stay in a two-bedroom luxury apartment in the heart of Florence with a terrace that overlooks the Duomo. They’ll visit with Hoda and Kathie Lee at the villa during the live show on April 23.
