it is with this formula that our quarantine videos begun in these past months, and it is with this sentence that we finally want to inform you that we are starting our tours once again.
Italy is reopening its sites following the State provisions on safety and health, and we are ready to have you rediscover our treasures. During these months we kept each other company with various videos divided between, Le opere scelte da Lucia (the artworks chosen by Lucia) in Italian and Food for Thought in English (if you missed any episode you can find all the videos on our YouTube channel by clicking here). It is obvious that no video can ever give you the joy and emotion that a “live” visit is able to pass on to you but, quoting Albert Einstein: “The measure of intelligence is the ability to change,” we adapted and we managed with our little contribution to keep the passion that unites us alive.
We just launched our new tour offer with Lucia – until June 3rd open only to Tuscan residents and then open to everybody – keeping the same costs of the past despite the increased expenses to comply with the new regulations. The choice we made was conscious and wants to be a strong message of solidarity towards all the people who have found themselves in difficulty in these recent months. We believe that art is a right for everyone and that it speaks in a universal language transcending personal interests or the chosen field of study. We are already working at full speed on all the events of this year that we have moved to 2021 and we are ready for new requests and new challenges.
We spent these past months working on our two sites: www.luciamontuschi.com which deals with tailor made tours and itineraries throughout the Italian territory and www.exclusiveflorencetours.com which has a selection of classic and unusual itineraries that are ready and easily bookable.
First of all we hope your are doing fine and keeping healthy, secondly we think that, just like us, you can hardly wait to get back to your life as it was. All we can do for the moment is to day dream about the wonderful places and sites we would like to experience once again. Who knows when we’ll be able to travel again and how we will have to change our habits. This is the reason why we came up with the Wish List idea, a totally free and non binding project in which you tell us about your dream tour and we will let you know when it will be available once again.
Participation is completely free and it will help us get to know you, share ideas on sites, visits, future projects and be ready to make them available for you as soon as possible.
What are you waiting for? All you have to do is write us at : email@example.com and tell us about your dream, what you miss the most and where you’d love to go once our country opens again.

In this difficult moment we have decided to make the most of the means we have in order to keep on promoting culture and sharing the passion that brings us together. Everyday many museums and foundations are posting videos and in-depth studies of their masterpieces on social networks.
For example the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, the Teatro la Fenice in Venice, some museums in Rome, such as the Capitolini, and so on.
We think these short videos are wonderful opportunities to visit these places and see them in a different light while comfortably sitting on our sofas at home.
All this reminds us that we are not alone but, on the contrary, we are a large community ready to come back as soon as it is safe for everyone.
While waiting to be able to accompany you once again through new discoveries and itineraries, we are working on our tours and preparing special events.
Follow us on our social networks for daily surprises and insights.
Here in Italy we are surrounded by art and even now there are many opportunities to explore it.
