Visit to Lucca
Lucca is a town that dates back to the Etruscans, and there is clear evidence of the Roman influence in the grid pattern of the streets. Inside the walls of the city, which are circled with gardens and huge bastions, is a well preserved Roman town. The best way to see the town is by bike, and you can take to the city walls to get a birds eye view on Lucca below you. Depending on how you are feeling you could take your bike down to the river outside the walls. This is not a great town by any means, so walking around here is perfectly possible, so why not take some time to get to know the place a bit better.
After visiting Lucca, you return to your agriturismo.
Head off to the coast today, ad you journey by train to the Cinque Terre region. The train journey itself is part of the experience here, as the route along the rugged coastline is very photogenic, and is definitely something to be marvelled at. Cinque Terre translates as Five Lands, and is named for the five villages that make up this region. While you are here, you have a variety of activities available to you. The more adventurous among you may want to take a walk along the coast. This region is renowned for some of Italy's best walking, and the walks on the Cinque Terre are varied and diverse. If you prefer, you could head down to the sea for a swim, or simply stop in one of the villages and take in the sights and sounds of this beautiful part of Italy.
Italian Cookery Class
This morning you can enjoy the surroundings of the agriturismo, whether you want to take a swim, enjoy the play area or walk in the huge gardens, the choice is yours. In the afternoon its time to don your apron for an Italian cookery class. Rightly considered some of the best food the world over, this is an opportunity to learn how to make some delicious genuine Italian fare. From rustic pasta dishes to authentic pizza, you can take home the secrets of great cooking. So if you don't know your passata from your prosciutto, this is your chance to find out. And best of all, having spent that time making it, you get to eat the results of your efforts at the end!
Visit to Siena
Take the train to Siena today. This medieval town is among Tuscany's most beautiful, and you can get a real insight into the history and culture of the region here. The old town has been declared a UNESCO world heritage site, which will appeal to all the family. The zebra striped duomo (black and white are the colours of Siena) is unusual in comparison to other churches in this style, and the Palazzo Pubblico, with its 97 metre high bell tower covers one side of the main square.
The piazza, 'Il Campo' is a great place to wander and you will enjoy seeing the sites here. In the evening you return by train to Castelfiorentino and your agriturismo.
Podere le Fornaci farm visit
As well as staying on a working farm, today you head for a farm to learn how cheese is made. You get to meet the sheep on the farm who produce the milk for the cheese, and then follow the process of cheese making all the way from start to finish. The farm is just over an hour from your accommodation, and as you head into the Tuscan hills, you are transported to a rural haven that is very different to the towns and cities that you have visited already this week.
The delightful location is a great place to see rural farming techniques in action. After this there is time for a delicious farm lunch before you head back to the agriturismo for the afternoon.
Free day in Agriturismo
After a week of activities today has been left free for you to enjoy this great rural location. Agriturismo Le Docce stands atop a hill and is immersed in a spectacular landscape made of hectares of vineyards and olive grove stretching over the surrounding hills. There is a pool and play area on site, and you are surrounded by a large garden. If you wish, you could take a walk among the olive groves, or there is the possiblity of some horse riding (additional charge).
The town of Castelfiorentino is not far away, and there you can find cafés, restaurants, as well as a market, which makes for a good day trip. If you want to go further away, it is easy to get to Florence in a short time, so you could spend a day in the home of renaissance Italy. The choice is yours!
