Spend less time searching online and more time enjoying your time in Tuscany.
I believe that when you visit a new country, you should leave with a deeper understanding, appreciation and connection with the culture, people, food origins and artisans.
Imagine having your best friend showing you the secret places where you can explore, wander, create, shop and eat just like a local.
That's how our experiences are designed to make you feel!
I'm your new BFF in Florence!
After more than fifteen years of living in Florence and thirty plus years working in the fashion industry, I created This Tuscan Life blog, magazine and experiences to share everything I love about Florence & Tuscany, one of the most popular and visited regions in Italy. Add a splash of watercolour & you've got a creative mamma of two who wants to show you the true & authentic side of Tuscany.
These delicious soft square pillows of ravioli filled with mashed potato, cheese, garlic and parsley are more commonly known in Tuscany as Tortelli Mugellani, the famous Tortello from Mugello! If you haven’t tried these yet, then add them to your list of ‘must-taste’ when you next travel to this region known as the ‘Green Valley of Tuscany’.
If you are looking for a new and special experience outside of the bustling city center, take a little walk to Cafe 19.26. It’s not a restaurant, nor a trattoria but a little bistrot where you might pop in for a coffee, stay for lunch and come back in the evening for a night-cap.
