Spring has come

… and it looks like summer, already ! Therefore, in a couple of week, our guides at Scuola Toscana will start with the popular activity “in barca cull’Arno”, a special way to get to know the historical centre of Florence by boat… italian in Italy, on the Arno river

More information at the school, in via dei Benci 23 !

Italian in Italy, new activities !

Christmas Holidays are almost over and at Scuola Toscana we are ready to start again !
Of course, all the good things of the previous years will be confirmed, but we are going to try also new projects.

One of the new activity will be a “Florence biking experience”, together with our friend, and bicycle expert Filippo (who happens to be also a Florence certified guide).

As a matter of fact, biking in Florence is usually a double-sided experience: while it allows you to arrive from A to B very very fast, even during the taffic rush hour, it can be very dangerous (and I mean it) if you leave the bicycle paths – and there are not much of them in Florence. <
Therefore, better to wear an helmet and be very careful… yours faithfully has been bycicling in Florence for 30 years (see picture) and still marvel at how car drivers in Florence are able to totally ignore someone on a bicycle.

However, with our guided tours you will be more than safe, as we go on selected routes, at a leisurely pace, with many stops and lots of things to see. The tours will be not only in Florence but also in Chianti, Lucca, along the Via Francigena, along the Arno river.
