Sprezzatura is the art of being elegant, stylish or fashionable almost without effort - it's what Italy is famous for! My name is Jenner Southerland, owner of Vivace Gourmet Personal Chef Services. I am what Florentines call a "Returner". While I could travel all over the world, Tuscany holds a special place in my heart and I keep coming back. I invite you to join me to experience beautiful Florence and Tuscany as a traveler, not a tourist. Sprezzatura! is an upscale Boutique Tour that combines art, food and wine for an exclusive, relaxed traveling experience designed for people that usually don't enjoy large tours. To get the most out of this boutique tour experience, the group size is limited to 10 travelers with one home base in Florence, Italy - no switching hotels.
For the past four years, we have experienced Tuscany utilizing the wonderful friendships and business networks I've built. We're not tourists, we're visiting family! Sprezzatura! is designed to give you an exclusive experience balancing private group day trips, with one home base and personal exploring time in beautiful Florence. The focus is on experiencing the beauty of Tuscany like a local and fostering an appreciation for locally produced food and wine through private tours at family owned businesses, wineries and Agriturismos. Our small group status gets us off the beaten path to experience wonderful places that one would not be able to visit in a large group tour or cruise. The itinerary is relaxed, flexible and personal; for the person who wants to be a traveler, not a tourist!
