TUSCANY PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP ITINERARY
Imagine to spend an entire week in an amazing villa located among the most beautiful hills of Tuscany, with a private chef preparing delicious meals everyday and picturesque sceneries all around. A dream that comes true during this Tuscany photography workshop!
We will pick up everyone from Florence Airport and start our scenic drive towards the villa, our base for the entire duration of the trip. From there, we will drive to our shooting locations everyday. Tuscany is famous for its lush rolling hills. But it’s also full of beautiful little picturesque villages. Some of the places we visit include:
- The famous cypress trees
- Podere Belvedere, one of the most photographed villa in Tuscany
- The charming little village of Pienza
- The rolling hills of Val d’Orcia
- Some unique and secret locations where we have 360 view over the hills
- …And much more…
During this Tuscany photography workshop we will be very active shooting all day long, especially at sunrise, sunset and during the night if conditions allow us. But don’t worry, we’ll always have some time to rest after breakfast and after lunch. This 7-days itinerary workshop will give us plenty of time to visit different locations and bring back home amazing shots.
