STRADA TOSCANA is an Experience

We create retreats, workshops and tours at privately owned villas in Tuscany and Sorrento.

And that’s just the beginning.

Just imagine sipping a chilled glass of Prosecco (in the shade of an ancient olive tree)…hand rolling pasta with Lorenza…and exploring medieval hill towns like an insider.

It’s the details of a trip experience that make all the difference, and we’ll let you in on a little secret. In order to notice these details – that reflect the uniqueness and beauty of Italian culture – it’s essential to slow things down a bit.

In fact, this is actually a big part of our work – slowing things down so that you have the opportunity to notice, savor and immerse yourself in a true Italian experience.

In order to give you this kind of authentic experience, we’ve put together an exceptional team of Italians (they’re amazing!), and we’ve also befriended countless artisans, experts and local residents, over the years, who are passionate about sharing their culture and traditions with you.


If you’re the type of traveler who enjoys jet-setting from location to location in a flurry, we’re probably not a good fit.

On the other hand, if slow food, hands-on experiences and getting to know a place as an insider light your heart on fire, we’re absolutely singing the same tune.

Our style – our approach to things, you might say – is a unique blend of Italian traditions, natural beauty, eco-friendly practices, casual chic and a touch of elegance.

We love things like tables set with wildflowers and olive branches, family antiques with a bit of patina, cappuccino at a local coffee bar, hand hammered copper, fresh organic food, winding medieval alleyways, beeswax candles, wine from hand picked grapes, old leather-bound books, tiny churches with Renaissance masterpieces, homemade pasta with homemade sauce…and aperitivo under the gazebo at sunset.

“You went out of your way to show us more than Italy’s culture, history, and beauty. You showed us Italy’s soul, as reflected in its dedicated people doing what they love, and often following in their families’ footsteps as fine artisans – handcrafting wine, cheese, olive oil, and metal work. The Italians you introduced us to love life, and love their life’s work, as you do. Their passion, and yours, touched us like no other tour, and we’ve had many. Thank you for your warm and heartfelt hosting, which has redefined vacations for us. As you know, our family is already planning another tour of Italy with you, because we won’t go with anyone but you.” —Sincerely, Beverly and Pete Bono
