What to Expect
Following pick-up in Florence or elsewhere, you will first visit Colle Val d'Elsa, famous for its crystals, and have the opportunity to participate in a craft workshop. The tour then proceeds to Volterra, known worldwide as the filming location of the Twilight New Moon saga. This town is famous for the extraction and processing of alabaster, and was a notable settlement in Etruscan times, later enriched by Roman and medieval buildings - the ruins of which you can see today. Examples include the Roman theater and the medieval cathedral.
Lunch will be at a small local organic farm, where you can also learn about ancient farming techniques still practised today. Taste local products with red or white wine. On the way back, you will also make an additional stop at a local winery for an organic wine tasting. Get ready for a once-in-a-lifetime experience in Tuscany!
