FORTHCOMING ART TOURS 2018
ITALY – Rome & Tuscany
22nd May – 8th June 2018
EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST BEING TAKEN NOW!
Let us take you to a breathtakingly beautiful part of Italy to stay in our country villa in Tuscany to enjoy days of painting, dining, sightseeing, visiting medieval towns and living the Italian lifestyle. We organise everything for you; accommodation, dinners, sightseeing, local travel, entertainment, painting tuition with all art materials included and plenty of entertainment for those who just like to come for a ride. All you have to do is come along, enjoy and have fun.
Three nights accommodation will be waiting for you in Rome on your arrival, so you can rest after your long flight. We meet the next morning to start the Art Tour with a walking tour of Rome by a local guide. One more day of sightseeing, art, painting and resting in Rome and then we will be off to our Villa in Tuscany.
The Villa is situated between Montepulciano and Cortona. From there we will enjoy day trips to the famous Tuscan cities of Sienna, Assisi, Perugia, as well as many small medieval walled towns like San Gimignano, Cortona, Montepulciano, Pienza and more. It may sound busy, but there is time for fun, painting, sightseeing and most of all imbibing in the wonderful Italian food and wine.
Daily painting sessions are anywhere between 1 to 3 hours long, all depending on your desires. We always find the time to shop and do sightseeing. Our experience has taught us that you need some rest sometimes and so we included 3 relaxing days in the Villa, lazing around the swimming pool or participating in art and cooking workshops.
The last two night will be spent in Florence, one day learning all about the City with our knowledgeable tour guide and the second day catching up on some shopping therapy or simply enjoying this amazing art filled city.
