(includes two nights in Rome)
"You desire to embrace it, to caress it, to possess it, and finally... your visit becomes a perpetual love affair."
—Henry James (on Tuscany)
Art and architecture. Food and wine. The landscape. These are what inspired by love affair with Tuscany. The Uffizzi Gallery in Florence. Botticelli. Michelangelo. The towers and frescoes in San Gimignano. Trattorias and mercatos. Amazing gelato. Wine tasting in Chianti. Rolling hills colored with forests, vineyards, olive groves and medieval hilltowns.
Join me as we tour, taste, look at art and, perhaps, make some art. I'll be drawing and painting along the way, and I've set aside some time specifically for us to explore the landscape together as "artists." Feel free to bring a sketchbook and an open mind. Just for fun. No previous experience necessary. Cordial criticism is free!
Vive bene; di risata molto.
