DAY 5“Smell”: When a garden appeals to all your senses, you definitely want to be part of it.

The beautiful colors of flowers, scent of aromatic plants, the sound of singing birds, the cool feel of grass…
Morning: According to the season of travelling visit one of the many interesting plant nursery in Pistoia.
Pistoia’s relationship with nature has been nurtured by one generation after the next for centuries. The small town’s storied gardening tradition, in fact, has made Pistoia the proud home to the greatest number of commercial plant nurseries in all of Europe. Garden and flower lovers can visit many of these living treasures and see first-hand the passion with which modern families still till the fertile soil once turned by the great grandparents before them.
Afternoon: Take a walk and relax at Villon Puccini, and amazing garden and park in the city centre.

DAY 6 “Touch”: Baker for a day: The process of baking bread is surely one of life’s most sensual pleasures!
Morning: Time at leisure
Afternoon: Meet with our baker at the bakery and learn all about Tuscan typical breads. Understand why Tuscans make loafs without salt and very special secrets of schiacchiata. Put your hands into the flour, add water, yeast, press, stretch and experience the mixture getting alive thanks to the yeasts and becoming the most delicious, yet simple, food. Not only your senses will be pleasurably awakened and teased with the promise of mouth-watering goodness, but the exquisite aroma will awake childhood memories of days gone by when grandmother baked huge batches of golden bread. And there is another bonus: your own made bread tastes better than anyone elses…
