“CHRISTMAS IN ITALIAN”
in Sardinia and Tuscany
In this region of Tuscany between the islands of the archipelago and the lagoon of Orbetello; between the coasts of Argentario and the landscape of the Maremma; when the deep blue of the Sea and the manifold green colors of the Mediterranean countryside creates a wonderful contrast to the rich colors of the soil …
… it is Christmas …
This is a magic moment to learn Italian and get in touch with the culture, because the „Italian way of life“ gets an authentic significance; the noise of the city seems softer, the rhythm of life welcomes deliberate conversations and the exploration of culture and language are more emotional than usual.
The mild climate and sunny days will accompany you during your exciting exploration of the Tuscan landscape.
