ABOUT THIS TRIP

This semi-independent trip is where you'll step into hidden artisan workshops, linger in the beauty of hidden Renaissance courtyards, dine with locals, and connect with the incredible history, art, and architecture of Florence! It's the perfect way to end a fabulous trip in Tuscany – and an unforgettable city that you’ll be so glad you didn’t miss!

This itinerary is intended as an extension to our Living Slow in Tuscany trip but can also be booked separately. As you likely will have just spent 8 days with a group, this extension is designed to give you more autonomy without a tour leader but with unique activities arranged for you with guides. Experiences will be shared with other trip guests who choose to add this extension.

Who is this trip for?

Our travelers want to leave the crowded tourist paths behind, without spending weeks researching. They want to connect with locals, but don't have years to perfect a new language. And while they love back roads and hidden villages, they're not up for the hassle and risk of driving a rental.

 

Our travelers are warm. They’re curious. And they want to see Italy with open hearts, open minds, and without the growl of a giant tour bus announcing their arrival. They are immersion seekers who want to step into the everyday life of authentic Italy!

 

Sound like you?

Our travelers are generally 45 - 65 years old but we get adventurers of all ages!

The Important Details

  • This trip is intended as an extension to our Living Slow in Tuscany Italy trip but can also be booked separately.

Experiences will be shared with other trip guests who choose to add this extension (max 8 guests). 

  • There will be no tour leader present, but you'll share the trip with up to 8 guests total and will have a detailed itinerary with guides/drivers meeting you at your B&B for each scheduled activity.
     

  • Please note that you'll need to carry your own luggage up and down stairs at hotels and across cobblestone.

  • Wifi is available but connection may not be as strong as you're used to at home.

NEXT CHANCE TO GO:

October 21 - 24, 2024

Experiences based on authentic connection with locals and their home.  

At Creative Edge Travel, we believe every journey should be meaningful. It should teach you about the authentic local culture and a bit about yourself, too. That's why we push the boundaries of the typical Italian tour and add our own creative edge. We design our experiences with individual locals in off-the-beaten-path places to give you a culturally-immersive adventure. Each activity is an opportunity to learn about both the beauty and the challenges of everyday life in Italy. Whether it's exploring a village with a local grandpa as he shares his stories growing up there, or learning traditional music and dance at a historic masseria, expect a deeper travel experience.
