You must let Tuscan Muse know your flight itinerary, including arrival and departure times, flight numbers and the airline that you will be using. We pick up from the airport at 1 p.m. on your arrival date. We drop off by 10 a.m. on your departure date. Please make your flight plans accordingly. Do not forget the time it takes to go through Customs/Immigration and to retrieve your luggage. If your flight lands later than 11 a.m. most likely you will miss the transportation that we have scheduled for you. If your flight departs before noon on your departure date, most likely you will have to make private arrangements, at your expense, for transportation to the airport. We encourage you to take advantage of the transportation that we have arranged for you, which is included in the price of your Tuscan Muse workshops and tours.
Arrival in Tuscany
You will be picked up by our excellent transportation partners at the Rome Airport (Fiumicino/ Leonardo da Vinci-FCO) at 1 p.m. on the first day of the workshop/tour. This means you must schedule your itinerary so that your flight arrives well before 1 p.m. and to allow for the customs/immigration process.
Our transportation partners will meet you at the airport. Look for a person carrying a sign that is marked, "Tuscan Muse". More specific details will be given to you prior to your departure.
The trip to Le Casacce from the airport in Rome takes approximately 3 hours. During the trip, there will be a rest stop for use of restroom facilities and to buy snacks and drinks.
Departure from Tuscany
On the last day of the workshop/tour your transportation to the Rome airport will be departing at approximately 7:00 a.m. and arriving at the Rome airport at approximately 10:00 a.m. Please be sure to make note of this before scheduling your flight. If your plans include staying over in Rome, we can only provide you with transportation to the airport, from which you will have to secure your own transportation into the city.
Buying Airline Tickets
We recommend that you wait to book your flights until the day after the registration deadline date for the tour that you have chosen. While it is very rare, sometimes a tour will not have enough participants for the tour to proceed. When this happens, we return your deposit to you right away, in full. But, you do not want to be stuck with airline tickets for a cancelled tour. The day after the tour registration deadline Tuscan Muse will send you a confirmation email that the tour is full or cancelled. We highly recommend that you wait until the tour is confirmed to purchase your airline tickets. Be sure to book your flight AFTER we have confirmed that the tour of Tuscany or workshop in Tuscany that you has chosen has filled! We determine this the day after the deposit registration deadline.
