Tuscany and Cinque Terre 

This is a SMALL group tour with LIMITED availability.
ONLY 12 photographers with 2 instructors! 

Beginner through Advanced!

YOUR RELAIS – in the heart of Tuscany

In the heart of the famous Crete Senesi, surrounded by the most evocative views of the Tuscan countryside, stands Castello di Leonina, a thirteenth-century fortress that was formerly the residence of the Chigi family and the country residence of future Pope Alexander VII, and is today an exclusive 4-star hotel just outside Siena.

This is our home and location for the Tuscany portion of the tour. This gives us an incredible location to explore the many known and better yet, lesser known villages and towns in the region. We will spend our days exploring the countryside, and our evenings with full course Italian meals and wine! Come and see why Tuscany is such an incredible part of Italy! 

Camogli – Cinque Terre

On this tour, David and Ally are excited to share with you one of their favorite small location in all of Italy, the town of Camogli.  This quaint seaside village is not known to most Americans and a bit off the beaten path.  This is a short train ride from the Cinque Terre towns and a world away from the tourist. 

Although the plan is to stay here in the town,  we may have to change due to renovations in the area. Regardless, with the time we have set aside for the region, we will be taking you to this special place where we first visited in 2006 on or first Valentines Day together……AWWWWWWW
We will spend 4 days exploring not only Cinque Terre, along the seaside coastal towns and villages that make up this wonderful part of Northern Italy!
