Tours and Activities in tuscany

Tuscany tour 

Tuscany tour

No need to talk about the beauty of nature, the importance of its artistic treasures or the quality of the food, Tuscany is a pearl to the conscious and attentive traveler, a  heaven to the always curious and the one place where everybody wants to go at least once in their life. The only question – once there – is where to start from. Pistoia is at half an hour distance from the most important and visited spots in Tuscany and the school will arrange guided tours with driver included in the price.

 Pistoia Tour

Pistoia tour

Although very close to the main touristic routes Pistoia remains quietly  off the main track.  The town  will surprise you with the many, still undiscovered masterpieces which emerge from a simple stroll, Wander around the narrow streets of the medieval centre and enjoy the silence, stop to watch the magnificent “Fregio della Robbia” above the arches of the old Hospital, enter the Church of S. Andrea and admire  the “pulpito” , sip a coffee at la Cafeteria of  native sculptor Marino Marini Museum where his famous “horses” are exhibited

 Cooking lessons

Cooking Lessons

Italian fresh pasta is  probably “the”  essence of the country cooking art. Still today no one  in Italy would settle for a festivity meal where fresh pasta is not served. Be it tortellini, ravioli, lasagne or fettuccine, may the sauce be Bolognese ragout, pesto or simply parmesan cheese and olive oil, fresh pasta is the one dish that turns an important meal into a “festa italiana”

 Food and wine tasting

Food and wine tasting

A tour of the Montalbano route, full of Chianti  wine and olive oil makers, cheese producers, chocolate factories and typical italian trattorie, is one of the things you do not want to miss when in Pistoia.  A visit to a traditional “frantoio” where olives are treated and squeezed into pure, virgin oil , or to a wine factory at the time of “vendemmia” when grapes are still picked by hands  is an experience which will add to the pleasure of talking in Italian.
