Starting this fall, Su Misura, in partnership with Valerie Wilson Travel, is offering women an authentic Florentine experience – the chance to interact with artists, fashion designers and chefs in their working environments.
This seven-day journey will take you through Tuscany and stimulate all five senses to create an unforgettable and unique tourist experience. As part of a small group, you will escape the clutter of typical tourism with private access to fashion showrooms and design studios, cooking classes with master chefs and exclusive viewings at the Gucci and Ferragamo museums. You’ll smell authentic Tuscan dishes and sweetly scented fragrances of master perfumers; you’ll touch handmade silks and leather; you’ll see historic sculptures and the Medici’s secret art collection; you’ll hear the pulsing sounds of Florence’s after-hours music scene and you’ll taste the very best wine Florence has to offer. Get ready to fully immerse yourself in the city’s booming art, food and fashion scenes in a way that was never possible before.
You’ll stay at the JK Palace, a beautifully restored mansion with only 20 rooms and top-notch amenities where you’ll immediately feel at home. The price may seem a little hefty (starting at $9,550), but for all you’re getting, it’s definitely worth every penny. Tour guides, entrance fees and private access are all included along with homemade finger foods, access to a local spa, meals and transportation to and from the airport.
And at the end of it all, if you need more than those seven days, Su Misura offers a three-day post-trip in the heart of the wine-making region on one of the largest private estates in Tuscany. The first of many tours will start on Sept. 30 and run through Oct. 7, so grab your passport and head to Italy for the time of your life.
