My husband and I will be staying in Lippiano from April 9 through April 16 and then in Orvieto from April 16 through April 22. We are interested in the following activities: Bicycle riding, cooking class, vineyard tour, wine tasting, hot thermal springs. Can anyone provide some recommendations on how or where to do these things?
Hi Tracy, there are many holiday rentals in Tuscany that organize many interesting activities like guided bike tours in Tuscany , visits to vineyards to see tuscan wine production and to try one (or more) glass of wine, the tasting of typical italian foods. If you like cooking, there are also many cooking classes to learn the secrets of the italian cuisine. A tutor will come directly to the villa to teach how to prepare fresh pasta, tasty second courses and good desserts of the italian/tuscan tradition. It's a nice experience to have fun and bring some interesting knowledges back to home . Thermal spas: I recommend to you the Grotta Giusti (thermal pool, grotto with 3 differents temperatures, treatments for body, hands, face etc...), Saturnia spa in southern Tuscany and Bagni di Lucca spa
