LEARN MORE ABOUT THIS OFFER

WELCOME
• 7 overnight stay in a charming farm house immersed in nature with familiar atmosphere.
• We welcome you with a delicious welcome dinner to let you taste some traditional Tuscan recipes, served with some good local wine.
• This package is thought for those who love handcrafts, culture and history.

CULTURAL TOUR - CERAMIC
• A tour leader will be at our disposal for the visit to the little town of Vicopisano, near Pisa, which is still surrounded by its safety wall and many ancient towers dating back to the XII Century. Here visit to the Brunelleschi fortress located on the top of the hill. We will visit also a ceramics workshop, where the workers will show you how they create a terracotta vase and decorate it.

CULTURAL TOUR – PASTA
• The castle of the Vicars of Lari is a perfectly conserved example of medieval fortress. It was built atop of a hill over a very strategic territory and its possession caused many wars between Pisa and Florence in the early Middle Ages. Discover with one of our tour leader what happened in its gloomy dungeons. The castle is located very close to a family-run pasta factory, which we also will visit to see how pasta is produced using traditional methods and tools, which are different from an industrial production. Tasting of the cherry liquor locally produced, in an old-fashion bar.

CULTURAL TOUR – ALABASTER
• The most fascinating Etruscan city in Tuscany, Volterra, is famous also for the handcrafted production of the ancient stone given to the city as a present by the sea…the Alabaster. Here you will visit together with one of our tour leader a traditional alabaster workshop, where you can see how the expert hands of the workers produce a nice and elegant vase from a piece of rough stone. Tasting of excellent chocolate locally produced in a elegant bar in the centre. Free time for shopping in Volterra.

WINE TOUR
• Ready to visit the estate! Together with the person in charge for the agricultural production, you will visit the farm. First you will have a interesting walk among the vineyards learning a lot about the history of the farm, the characteristics of its produce and the methods of cultivation. Afterwards you will enter the wine cellar and the owner will explain you the processes of the wine making. Eventually you will taste the excellent wines (Chianti and Igt) and extra virgin olive oil produced there.
• At the end of your stay you will receive a nice gift.
