Arie whisks Becca K. away in red convertible to the quaint medieval village of Barga. As they picnic atop a hill overlooking the picturesque Tuscan countryside, the two try to reignite their initial spark before it is too late. Can they heat up their relationship and head to Becca's hometown?

Jacqueline needs to decide whether she can totally commit herself to the handsome Bachelor and decides to lay it all on the line when she gives a late-night knock on Arie's hotel door. What transpires turns his world upside down!

Lauren B. hasn't been able to conquer her nerves or allow herself to be total vulnerable, but that will need to change if she is to get a rose and a hometown date. Arie and Lauren B. ride bikes, shop and indulge in gelato in Lucca; but at dinner, the usually play-it-safe bachelorette shares her true feelings for the Bachelor, but his reaction surprises her. Did she share too much too soon?

Seinne and Arie spend the day with a local legend and his dogs searching for truffles and share a delicious homecooked meal with the truffle hunter's extended Italian family. How will this captivating woman fit into Arie's life? Will she capture his heart?

A beautiful villa is the backdrop for Arie and three delightful women - Bekah M., Kendall and Tia - to have one final group date before hometowns. One woman throws another under the bus as everyone's emotions run high and it is left to Arie to make his toughest decision yet. Will he live to regret it?
