An unusual and curious tour in Casentino Valley an area between Florence and Arezzo. A side of Tuscany that maybe you wouldn't live and experience without Lorenzo.

He's a friend and knows the area very well and seams the tour it's a real fun ...eating, drinking, laughing and shopping all day.

The day starts from Florence city center at 8,30 in the morning. On the way to the valley seams really necessary a stop to a bakery for an after breakfast break with "schiacciata", a delicious type of bread with olive oil and salt on top (I love it!!)

The tour, made with a 6 seats Van brings you to the Castle of Poppi. The castle is a magnificent medieval monument dated 1191 that rise on a hill. But seams not easy to arrive as many stops are programmed along the way.

You will have the incredible chance to stop first to admire a beautiful 15th century stone watermill that has been carefully renovated and restored to bring it back to it's original style and former glory and still producing flour then at a ceramic shop with high-quality hand-painted crafts and a then a little nice shop with fresh spices.

This day tour in Tuscany is having a lot of success considering the requests and few availabilities.
