You will leave this training feeling confident in your newfound knowledge and experience!

Come and journey with us on this adventure! We will enjoy amazing Italian meals together, become closest of friends, and explore some of the beauty Italy has to offer such as the Tuscan coastline and wine tasting in nearby vineyards.

Experience Tuscany
 
Your Days Off

During our time together, you will fall in love with the Italian countryside. On our days off, we will explore the amazing offerings of wider Tuscany. Picture a day spent in the countryside, at a villa amidst vineyards and olive groves - possibly wine tasting. We will make authentic pizzas in the wood fired oven, enjoy the breathtaking scenery, and relax with an amazing community of friends. We might also venture to the Thermal Hot Springs of Saturnia. These are the stunning terraced pools, that are turquoise in color. We may spend the day on a boat cruising the Mediterranean coastline, aperol spritz in hand, living the Italian summer dream. There are endless opportunities, and we will make sure your days off will be experiences for you to cherish for the rest of your life.
