Food and wine, art, music, tourism, opera and ballet, events not to be missed: what to do, what to see, what to invent.
The cooking classes, mostly carried out in accommodation facilities, represent the fastest and the funniest ways of approaching Tuscan gastronomy. You will be involved in the preparation of a healthy and genuine menu, linked to the typicality and traditions, using fresh products that are usually collected from private gardens and orchards. The chefs are also specialized in vegetarian, vegan and macrobiotic cuisine and they will put a special attention to the guests with food intolerances or who requires a special diet. The lessons last about 3 hours and always end around the table, to taste what was cooked together and to toast with a glass of Chianti (the picture is purely indicative).
The priority of the Agency of musical and artistic services to which I turn, lies in interpreting the client's wishes, taking care of the realization of the event in detail. The source of inspiration that binds this Duo of refined concert performers (soprano and pianist / organist) is the music, which they embrace with passion and undisputed professionalism. They'll make themselves available to find the location and the musical pieces suitable for your event. From weddings to special evenings with ballet, from events with actors / musicians to concerts in particular places, they will know how to inspire you with a vast music catalog, which represents the synthesis of twenty years of experience in the sector.
The Valley of “Casentino”, in Tuscany, is a place rich in history, art, gastronomic specialties but, above all, in enchanting landscapes, far from mass tourism. About an hour from Florence, immersed in the Casentinese Forest National Park, this valley offers endless opportunities: excursions to the medieval castles or to the Benedictine hermitage of Camaldoli, evidence of the exile of Dante Alighieri, walks through centuries-old forests, culinary delights taste, bio agri-food companies to know. In this oasis of peace, which preserves a splendid rural tradition, we also find an old water mill with stone millstones from the 17th century, well preserved and still in working order.
Traveling is a way to get in touch with the culture and lifestyle of people who live in places other than ours, not only in Tuscany and Florence. Each city contains small / large differences such as dialects, customs, food and wine, tourism, as well as being containers of immense cultural heritages. With this blog I propose you to discover the peculiarities of three important cities: Venice, Rome and Milan. From Florence SMN depart high-speed trains which, in about an hour and a half, will reach the above citycenters (alternatively, minivan and private driver), from where we can start our tours. It will be a pleasure to accompany you through history, culture and, why not, shopping!
