We did a day trip from Siena to Buonconvent. It is only a 25 minute train ride and a 5 minute walk to the center of town. The entry way is grand but not fancy. Wonderful town with only 3 main streets dotted with small shops and restaurants. Wander the back streets which has some nice architecture and lots of... More

This charming gallery is a must when in Tuscany. Artists Maddine &Joe have captured the beauty & serenity of the Tuscan countryside in jeweled colors that are unforgettable. You will have to use great discretion in selecting your favorite paintings, unless you are able to take them all. Be sure to meet the artists...they are an inspiration, indeed. J Lee

A small friendly gallery featuring excellent plein air paintings by the owners Maddine Insalaco and Joe Vinson. Work includes scenes from a variety of locations including the nearby Tuscan landscape and there are enough painting sizes and prices to accommodate most any pocketbook. Be sure to see all the portfolio bin paintings on paper. I purchased a painting that reminds... More
