Off-the-Beaten-Path Italian Experience in Anghiari

Updated: May 3, 2021

I’m currently living in Florence on a constant lookout for off-the-beaten-path Italian experiences. But like, experiences experiences. The kind that you can’t wait to tell people about but when you do, you quickly realize it’s no use– they weren’t there and they can’t fully understand the level of raw beauty you’re trying to convey.

On a recent day trip to a village called Anghiari, I fell upon one of those experiences. It was really more like falling upon one of those people in one of those places. In this case, a wood-inlay artisan in a hilly village full of curves and distant views across the valley below and no tourists in sight.
