Craft workshops, sporting events and other customized experiences can also be arranged for your children.
For retail therapy, a personal shopper can be provided to assist in purchasing antiques, art, fashion, and crafts in Florence, Siena, Arezzo and local favorites. Spend a day with a specialized guide sampling the wares of Tuscany's famous designer outlets.
