October

  • Eurochocolate
    Never mind waiting until Christmas to immerse yourself in one of life's sweetest pleasures. Chocolate-lovers looking to satisfy their cravings can book a week-long trip with To Tuscany Villas to Perugia's Eurochocolate Festival in October.
    Perugia's Eurochocolate Festival is Europe's most famous festival of its kind and is set to fill the streets of Umbria's capital city mid October with a celebration of all things chocolaty. Featuring chocolate from all over Europe, visitors will be able to delight in free sample tastings, visit related exhibitions and demonstrations, sample some of the latest chocolate-based beauty treatments and even marvel at huge chocolate sculptures carved in the Piazza IV Novembre. Wandering through the medieval streets, they will find the main piazzas and streets are scattered with stalls selling chocolate in its pure form or blended into ice creams, cakes, pastries and even savoury dishes. For those looking to brush up on their culinary skills, there are chocolate cooking classes, while informative seminars will educate people in the nutritional and dietary benefits of the tasty treat.
    The chocolate festival is of course also the perfect excuse to visit the medieval city of Perugia, known as 'The Green Heart of Italy'. Special guided tours of the city, a wealth of architecture and surrounding countryside to explore and an abundance of chocolate will all make for a delicious week away.

OPERA DEL DUOMO MUSEUM & BAPTISTERY

Over 750 works, the greatest concentration of Florentine monumental sculpture in the world: statues and medieval and Renaissance reliefs in marble, bronze and silver of the greatest artists of the time. Masterpieces made for the exteriors and interiors of the Baptistery of San Giovanni, the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore and Giotto's Bell Tower. You will be astonished by the hall of Paradise where the original golden door by Ghiberti stands right in front of the 
medieval façade of the cathedral, entirely reconstructed in 1:1 scale; it is in this room that a young Michelangelo carved the DAVID on commission of the bishop. You will have the chance to be in front of the PIETA’ by Michelangelo, the sole masterpiece of sculpture made by the artist for himself: its memorial. Your guide will leave you at the Brunelleschi terrace, just in front of the CUPOLA, a perfect pick for your memory of Florence.
