Discover the charm of Lucignano, a quaint medieval village nestled in the heart of Tuscany. Join us for a painting holiday amidst its picturesque streets, ancient buildings, and breathtaking panoramic views of sunflower fields. Escape the tourist crowds and immerse yourself in the authentic Italian experience.

Located conveniently close to Florence, Cortona, and Siena, Lucignano offers the perfect blend of serene countryside and cultural richness. Indulge in the region’s renowned wines and cheeses as you explore this hidden gem.

Accommodations in Lucignano are abundant and within easy reach of charming restaurants, bars, and cafes. Need art supplies? The nearby village of Sinalunga hosts a quaint art shop for your convenience.

For travelers flying into Rome or Florence, we offer hassle-free transfers to Lucignano. Whether you arrive solo or in a group, we’ve got you covered. Sit back and enjoy a scenic two-hour drive from Rome airport for just 300 euros.

Traveling by train? Arrive at Arezzo and let us take care of the rest with convenient pick-up services. Explore our package options and accommodations curated by our local expert, Jacopo, at lucignanolikelocals.com.

During your stay, dive into painting workshops led by our experienced instructor, covering both oils and watercolors. It is $1600 AUD for the two weeks of tuition; accommodation and everything else is not included. Typically, our program is a mix of days of painting sessions and then a day touring around nearby places to get outside of the village and to experience the beauty of the Tuscan countryside.

Traveling with a non-painting partner? They’re more than welcome to join the festivities and explore the local delights with our friendly group of participants. With plenty of activities and warm hospitality from the locals and expats, there’s never a dull moment in Lucignano.
