La Dolce Vita means “the sweet life” and we hope to introduce you to this when you join one of our retreats or holidays. We offer a carefully selected choice of optional activities and excursions, designed to give you a taste of Tuscany and the local culture, without it feeling like an organised tour! Using our local knowledge, we collaborate with the best local operators to offer private full day and half day outings to fabulous destinations. Here’s a sampling of what you can do on one of our retreats in Tuscany:

Guided Bike & Walking Tour of Lucca

Join a guided bike and walking tour of Lucca to discover its fascinating medieval walls, ancient architecture and elegant palazzos. The tour lasts around 3 hours starting with a gentle cycle around the ancient walls of Lucca pointing out places of interest followed by a tour on foot through the medieval streets. The tour is just about the right length of time to learn something about the history of Lucca, see some of its works of art, sample some of the best gelato in the world or stop at one of the local cafés to enjoy a macchiato! Note this tour is very easy in physical challenge.

Pietrasanta Artist Village

Visit the lively, picturesque artist’s village of Pietrasanta, a thriving art centre full of galleries, shops & colourful restaurants spilling onto the pavements. Best known for its marble & bronze artistic works, Pietrasanta often hosts international art exhibitions in the local Piazza’s where you can sit over aperitivo and watch the buzz unfold. The best time to visit is in the early evening and staying until late. Our drivers will drop you off and bring you home by around 11:30pm.

Thermal Spa

Bagni-di-Pisa-951-x-460Indulge in a thermal spa journey to relax, unwind + melt away any tension. Discovered in ancient roman times, the therapeutic properties of the hot springs offer health benefits such as better circulation, treatment of mild skin conditions, improvement in the body’s detoxification process + a boost to your immunity system! Best suited to the cooler months, our thermal spa excursion departs after breakfast & returns in time for a late lunch.
