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 our experiences are designed to make you feel!


I'm your new BFF in Florence!

Cosa Facciamo?
 
 What we Do ...
OUR SERVICES

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.

more about me

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’. 

Barberino di Mugello is a small town found an easy thirty minute drive along the A1 from Florence or 45 minutes from Bologna. For those of you that know me well, you’ll understand one of the things that I find special about visiting Barberino…….. Did someone say Designer Outlet?
