San Gimignano, on the other hand, tells us a unique story that takes us back to the Middle Ages, when the first skyscrapers began to be built! That’s right: already in the 14th century the richest families of the city competed by building towers over 50 meters high to show their power and their wealth! If you are passionate about history and art and you want to spend a day discovering two of the most beautiful and characteristic cities of Italy, we will be happy to customize your exclusive private experience!

Pienza and Montepulciano are the two main cities of the Val d’Orcia. Rich in history with a glorious past, the first Pienza is famous for being identified as the ideal city of the Renaissance and the second Montepulciano, among other things, is considered one of the best wine regions in the world.
The historical center of Pienza, with its “ideal” dimensions, is something amazing.
Montepulciano, on the other hand, is a gorgeous Renaissance village, with a medieval layout, set in a postcard-perfect landscape.
A day in Val d’Orcia can only end with a meal based on local products, such as Cinta Senese salami or pappardelle with wild boar, all accompanied of course by a glass of Vino Nobile. If you love fresh pasta, sit down in front of a plate of pici all’aglione (a delicious sauce typical of the Val di Chiana). Finally, do not miss the opportunity to see the Chianina steak cooked on the grill.
Lucca & Pisa
Lucca is one of the treasures of Tuscany. The richness of the city is found in the beauty of its historic center, rich in monuments as well as stores where you can go shopping.

Leonardo Da Vinci, Raffaello, Michelangelo, Brunelleschi… these are just some of the greatest masters of the Italian Renaissance, who with their genius, their mastery of the arts and their “sense of beauty” have left an indelible mark on the world’s cultural heritage. Do you know what these four great artists, as well as many others you have surely heard of, have in common? They all trained in the Florentine “botteghe“, real professional schools of the Renaissance, highly selective, where the Masters chose their apprentices and trained them to become some of the best artists that have marked our history. Today, in Florence, it is still possible to find the heirs of this long and rich artistic tradition: they are the artisans who work int hose that are still called “botteghe” and that characterize the center of the city, with their artistic vivacity and enormous craftsmanship.
If while walking you stop for a moment and look into one of their botteghe, you can see the Florentine artisans busy working with leather to create bags, shoes or belts of the highest quality. Or immersed in the countless fragrances that they expertly mix to create incredible scents. Or you can watch them working with paper and decorating it by hand, shaping gold into unique jewels or working in their sculpture or antique restoration workshops.
