The Tuscan countryside offers many occasions to experience a special vacation in the form of retreats. In the past, pilgrims used the via Francigena which crosses Tuscany to get travel toward or away from Rome and the many abbeys and monasteries along the way provided a place to stay. Today, you don't need to be on a pilgrimage to enjoy being close to nature, the silence and tranquility of the countryside or the many places that offer hospitality across the entire region.
There are many places that offer small and large groups the opportunity to experience yoga retreats, writing seminars and workshops, photographic tours, art and intensive language courses and cooking classes, to name just a few themes at the heart of your experience in Tuscany.
