ITALY – Rome & Tuscany

22nd May – 8th June 2018

EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST BEING TAKEN NOW!

Let us take you to breathtakingly beautiful parts of Italy, Rome and the most magnificent towns in the Tuscan region.

9bDSC_0111
After 4 days of walking, exploring and painting in Rome, we will travel to our amazing country villa in Tuscany to enjoy the rest of our holiday painting, dining, sightseeing, visiting medieval towns and living the Italian lifestyle. From the villa we take day trips to the famous Tuscan cities of Florence, Sienna, Assisi, Perugia, as well as many small medieval walled towns such as San Gimignano, Cortona, Montepulciano and more. It may sound busy, but there is time for fun, painting, sightseeing and most of all imbibing into the wonderful Italian food and wine. Non artists and partners will be well looked after during the painting sessions, so there will be no time for boredom!

Here is the opportunity to travel, enjoy and paint with likeminded people. Let someone else organise the accommodation, travel, food and all those mundane things so you can maximise your traveling experience.
