    Tors

    November 13, 2018 in Italy ⋅ ☁️ 11 °C

    Mittags geht es weiter Richtung Italien. Wir wollen auf den Caravan Park Sexten.

    Als wir von der Autobahn runter sind und noch ca.50 km zu fahren hatten kommen wir an einen Tunnel der gesperrt ist. Der freundliche Strassenbaumitarbeiter erklärt uns das der Tunnel bis 17:00 Uhr gesperrt ist. Jetzt haben wir 15:00 Uhr.

    Wir sollten die 2 km zu Dorf zurück fahren und einen Kaffee trinken und dann später wieder kommen.

    Das haben wir dann auch gemacht, nur leider waren alle Läden zu.

    Wir zurück zum Tunnel und uns selber Tee aufgebrüht.
    Das Wasser war noch nicht heiß, da kam ein Polizist und meinte wir sollen ihm folgen. Und so ging es im Konvoi durch den Tunnel und dann sahen wir den Grund der Sperrung. Ein Sturm hatte in den Tal viele Bäume entwurzelt und die mussten von der Straße geschnitten werden.

    Da hatten wir ja nochmal Glück gehabt.

    Cooking Class
    In the heart of Chianti, yet with Florence in sight, 18 years after we founded the Accidental Tourist we still thoroughly enjoy sharing our tradition and appreciation for wine and authentic food, adapting to your time budget, with our full-day and half-day tours.
    Time, practice, experience (and curiosity!) have helped us perfect our hands-on cooking class to minimize gluten and carb content in our fresh pasta making class, to create food that is just as delicious, but lighter: so you can eat more!

    the setting is our private historical home in the countryside -an 870-year old villa on the hills over Florence – where we’ll learn how to make homemade pasta from scratch like you’ve never had before: NATURALLY low gluten, low cal, low carb, and yet more nutritious and satisfying)

    It’s a hands-on lesson, you don’t just watch a chef do all the work…
    The tour will end up with a plentiful home-cooked lunch, with unlimited wine, coffee and homemade dessert included.

    After lunch, plenty of time to chat at the table while having espresso the Italian way, while we exchange addresses and suggestions with our new friends.

    Our home is a watchtower built is 1146, and has been in our family for 6 generations.
    Opening our home in Tuscany to our guests – with a special passion for families, solo travelers, couples – has been our work and passion since 1998.
    However our welcoming heritage has deeper roots that the Accidental Tourist:
    During WWII, many strangers were sheltered, and lives were saved in these stone walls.
    And before that, in the 1700’s, this “mini-castle” used to be an orphanage.

    As heirs of this abode, we want to honour its vocation:

    to welcome strangers, ’til they are no longer strangers.

    Florence, Italy - River Cruise

    May 18, 2017 in Italy ⋅ 🌙 59 °F

    Friday, June 2, 2017 6pm
    Your tour will begin in central Florence, where you’ll meet up with your guide. Travel through the bustling Piazza della Signoria, home to the impressive Palazzo Vecchio, and see the Uffizi Gallery before approaching the Ponte Vecchio, Florence’s historic bridge. Hop aboard your boat and enjoy a 1-hour cruise down the scenic Arno River. Translating to ‘little boat’ in Italian, the barchetto was used centuries ago to transport building materials down the river for Florence’s city walls. As you journey across the water, learn the stories behind the architecture and grand palaces that you pass. Cruise under the Ponte Vecchio and get a riverside view of the Uffizi Gallery. While your guide pours you a chilled glass of Prosecco, hear about the secret passageway of the Vasari Corridor, connecting the Palazzo Vecchio to the Palazzo Pitti so that members of the Medici family could travel stealthily through the city. You’ll also pass the brilliant Baroque design of the Corsini Palace and the Santa Trinita Bridge. After your Florence river cruise concludes, you will return to your original departure point.
