Most folks have a pretty solid "mind theatre" in place for the sights to behold in Tuscany: row after row of lush vineyards, silvery olive orchards clinging to hillsides, red clay rooftops covering antiquity, and so on.
All true, all lovely, all beloved. But I bet few have ever peeked under the soil of dear Toscana.
As part of the recent bloggers' tour organized and sponsored by The European Institute of Cultural Routes, we were fortunate to be welcomed guests of the Grotto Giusti, a renown above ground spa AND really awesome thermal cave where folks have gone since 1849 to find well-being and balance...and a lot of sweat.
The same day held other wonders, as well, such as a tour of the Montecatini Contemporary Art Museum, a fabulous lunch at Hotel Torretta, and a peek in the elegant old gal called Grand Hotel and La Pace Spa.
All the details can be found on my latest post right here on the EICR official website.
Happy virtual touring....and andiamo, y'all!
