What you'll do

You will help picking olives together with the locals at my farm overlooking Florence (amazing views from here!). If the olive harvest is over, we will have you taste the different extra virgin olive oils of our production and visit our olive grove. Make sure to wear walking shoes so as to explore the area in complete comfort. We will also have you taste the best ham, salame and bruschetta of Tuscany accompanied by a glass of red wine from the area.
Other things to note
We will pick you up in the town of Bagno a Ripoli (bus #23). Meeting in front of the Pharmacy.
In case you have your own means of transport, please let us know and I will send you the exact address where the olive grove is.

It has taken years to recover the old olive trees that surround my country house and that had been abandoned for some time. I have fallen in love with this place that offers unique views of typical Tuscany hills and of Florence, especially of the cathedral with its dome. Every year I pick olives and produce wonderful extra virgin olive oil.
I'd like you to share this beautiful slice of Tuscany and the activities that make it so special to me with you and and to leave you with good memories of Florence besides the ones that you can discover on your own in our art (and some time hectic) city center.

Where you'll be

You will be in real Tuscany even if it's just only 12 km/8 mile out of Florence. If you have chosen to be in the center, you might want to get a sample of Tuscany: hills, olive groves, a glass of wine together with a taste of ham, salame and bruschetta. If the olive harvest in on, you will be able to partecipate.
