The Baglioni Relais Santa Croce in Florence is a treasure trove of artworks of unparalleled beauty. The unique Relais & Châteaux residence reflects the soul of the city in its elegant hospitality, sublime décor and unostentatious welcome. Stay in Florence and let us guide you through a workshop exploring the history of the artistic techniques used by the Renaissance greats. Reach the Art Academy, just a few steps from the Florence Cathedral: after a tour of the Academy, first-rate painters will take you through the methods that Florence’s leading masters deployed to express their talents. Then, in a hands-on practical demonstration, you can create your own piece of art using one of the techniques covered, namely egg tempera, gold leaf and watercolour. Learn the secrets of the Renaissance painters in the city of art par excellence.
