Multi-Day Vespa Trip in Tuscany

Our first Vespa Trip, in 2015, was organised in Tuscany. For obvious reasons. From the moment you leave the city, you find yourself in the middle of the most beautiful landscapes Italy has to offer. In this region it would be difficult to find a boring road.<br><br>Every village and city you encounter is precious. Some of them are hidden pearls, others are known around the globe. Each day, we'll take you through a different landscape. From the stretched farmlands around Pisa, through the hills of the Chianti region and the mountainous area around Lucca to medieval cities like Siena and Florence.

There are so many places to buy ceramics in Italy, and it's usually the cheaper, souvenir-type stuff, so why not venture off the path and visit with some true artists? Leonardo da Vinci's home is also nearby, and recommended to visit. You should google Taccini's website and absorb the background on this family before you visit the gallery. We were hosted by Alesandro, who is a real gentleman but needs an English translator to really understand all that he has to tell you....and that's a very interesting story! Most impressively, we were shown a work-in-progress piece that was just recently chosen by the Vatican to honor the new Pope, selected from over 700 works of art from around the world! And if you can afford it, purchase one of Taccini's wonderful vases or other one-of-a-kind works of art completed by the father, who is now deceased. This is a highly recommended visit!

The art by these 3 brothers blends Tuscan, Italian, traditional, and modern sensibilities. Their art has been exhibited throughout the world, including Japan, the Vatican, South America, US, and of course churches in Italy! They have a ceramics art curriculum, where you can learn the techniques of painting, art, and sculpture from true art masters! You should contact them to schedule and get more information. The gallery is a large 2 storey expanse where you can peruse their latest works. Be prepared: the art can be large and dramatic! Some pieces can take up to 2 years to complete. They can ship anything you buy, making it so convenient to take a piece or two for your collection. I love the Choral Angels collection! I also am very compelled by their sacred art and traditional Rafaelesque interpretations. Find them, it is a moving experience!!!
