If you're looking for a true taste of Tuscany, you're in the right place. 

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 my experiences are designed to make you feel!

I'm your new BFF in Florence!


A private food or shopping tour,
a cooking class or perhaps you prefer a creative workshop? 
Soak up the Tuscan culture and live
This Tuscan Life!

Cosa Facciamo?
 What we Do ...

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.
