Tuscany Art Getaway


Discover your


Our workshops are specifically designed for people who just like to have fun with art.  You don’t have to be an “artist” to have success.  Most of the other workshops are for serious artists looking to master their craft.  At Appassionata Me, we drink wine, laugh, crank the music up and mess around with various art techniques just because it’s fun.  The end result is irrelevant.  We are on a gorgeous farm in Italy having the time of our lives with an amazing group of women.  It’s all about the joy of creating!

Appassionata Me is unique in the international art workshop world.  We believe that your Italian experience shouldn't stop when the workshop is over.  You’ve come all this way and are so close to so many amazing things!!  How can we NOT show them to you?!!  That’s why we include several extra days in the tour so we can show you all of our favorite things in Florence, Siena and Tuscany.  This, paired with our many special personal touches, makes this an experience like no other.   



Explore the treasures of the Renaissance! Spend 5 days in Florence and see some of the most astounding art and architecture in the world.  Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Donatello, among others, have left Florence one of the most visually stunning cities in the world.


Along with Florence, Siena has one of Italy's most jaw-dropping churches.  Entering it for the first time will take your breath away.  Explore the Duomo and wander the streets of this great medieval city. 

San Gimignano

Spend the night in one of Italy's most perfectly preserved medieval cities.  The towers of the rich and powerful from centuries past make an impressive skyline.  Climb the bell tower for a view of the Tuscan hills that must be seen to be believed.  

San Gimignano

Greve & Castellina in Chianti


The small villages of Greve and Castellina in Chianti are meant for leisurely strolls.  Sip wine in the piazza or discover your new favorite wine at Greve's wine tasting dispensary! Wander through the shops and local markets that fill the streets. Imagine the treasures you will find!
