We live in a historic home in the very CENTER of Florence near the famous David, Ponte Vecchio, and Catherdal. Forget stress for buses; we are next door to museums and monuments.
With a 10 minute walk to bus/train stations you can leave for daytrips to the seaside, or to famous towns like Siena, Arezzo, Pisa, Lucca, San Gimignano, or for trekking in Cinque Terre or for winetasting tours in the Tuscan hillsides.
We have been hosting students for decades. I also offer Italian cooking lessons, watercolor lessons, Italian and English lessons.
I love to cook, so breakfast includes my jams homemade with fruit from our place in the country. For evening meals just ask, we will be glad to give you a taste of the famous Tuscan specialties!
My husband smokes the occasional cigar -Toscano, of course!
