Summertime is approcching and it is time to visit Tuscany
with art, good wine & food, scenic views and relaxation at
Ancora del Chianti EcoBB & Art Retreat!
Start now enjoying with this video (1 min) and …SING with me!
Summertime is the perfect moment for enjoying a typical Italian dinner al fresco admiring a red sunset with a glass of Chianti wine after a day of visits in the best and most interesting cities and sceneries of Tuscany. Here there is a lot to do and a lot to see: Florence, Siena, San Gimignano for art and shopping; wine tours in Tuscany is also a great experience; painting lesson is fun and there is so much to learn; cooking class is also fun and there is so much to indulge yourself; get lost in the Chianti region with medieval villages, romantic roads and breakthtaking views. And do not forget to slow down…take your time for relaxing in the nature and silence….happiness is closer than you imagine.
