Take a quick Fiat 500 drive through the Tuscan countryside–just outside the historical city center of Florence. Spend a couple of hours with your local guide and driver as you bee-bop through the old cobbled and stone-walled streets of Florence’s aristocratic neighborhoods. Stops include San Miniato al Monte for scenic city views, roadside stops for olive oil and tastings and a unique cappuccino break. We’ll stop mid-day at a Chianti vineyard tour for a visit of the winery and light lunch accompanied by a tasting of three wines from the farm. Follow up this experience in the afternoon with a personal fresco painting workshop. Learn the ancient techniques for creating your own masterpiece from our modern day Michelangelo, Alan Pascuzzi. Alan is one of the few people classically trained in the traditional technique that Michelangelo used to paint the Sistine Chapel.
