We see other workshops (seems like everyone is a tour guide these days) offering expensive bus tours, trying to cover too many cities, too fast. Blasting through crowded towns with the other tourist groups is not our idea of fun. Nor are three-hour daily bus rides.
In eleven years and 17 workshops in Italy, we’ve honed trips that allow you to experience the Italian way of life, not just gawk at it’s monuments. You’ll need time out on the hillside, waiting out the last rays of light. You’ll poke through the tiniest villages where a foreigner with a camera is still a novelty to the smiling residents.
Less time on the road, more time in cafes. Follow gravel paths instead of a guide with a red ﬂag. Enough said.
