Thursday April 13, 2017

JEWISH SIENA & KOSHER CHIANTI      8am – 5pm, 149€/person
In its golden age Siena was a proud republic, European financial capital, and arch-rival of Florence.  The city boasts an incredible historic center of summits and slopes that harness the hilly terrain and create unexpected panoramas of brick, stone, and beauty.  All roads in Siena seem to lead to the Campo, the inviting, lively, shell-shaped main Piazza, heart of the city day and night. The former Jewish ghetto is situated near this square, the synagogue hidden behind it with an anonymous facade, as was common for all synagogues built before ghetto emancipation.

Led by an art historian and a member of the Jewish community, we’ll have the pleasure of wandering through this marvelous town, learning more about its very particular history and present: life here is still based around the seventeen different neighborhoods or contrade whose medieval rivalry comes to a head twice a year at the dramatic bareback horse race called the Palio. We’ll tour the lovely 18th century synagogue and museum, meet local community members who will share personal or historical accounts of Siena ebraica. Afterwards, we can visit the Adarveadar atelier and admire the magnificent Jewish-Italian illumination work of the artists.

In the afternoon, we’ll make our way through the countryside of the Chianti region, with its splendid medieval hill towns and castles, rolling vineyards and olive groves. It is as if we are walking into a painting. We’ll visit the wine-making estate of a kosher Chianti Classico producer, and savor what is one of Italy’s best reds, before continuing north back to Florence.

We will continue with the visit of the Ferragamo Museum, housed in a precious medieval building and showing the design shoes created by Salvatore Ferragamo. We’ll then continue our tour with a visit to several artisan workshops, which produce various special Florentine products, such as marbled paper, furniture, wood carving and leather goods. Our guide is happy to provide additional advice on the highest quality shops to visit in Florence’s historic center, from clothes to accessories to jewelry stores, so you can best plan your shopping experience.
