A tailored couture visit of Tuscany. Experience with CouTURISTa all the best that Tuscany has to offer. From Michelin starred restaurants to Chianti wine tasting, truffle hunt and luxury shopping, Myriam Angulo is an insider in the glamorous Florentine scene and your guide to a couture vacation.
This is not just another ‘’catalog’’ guided tour. It is an inside lifestyle experience of the best that Tuscany has to offer with an expert guide to luxury. Myriam Angulo has been a food and wine expert for years. Now she is turning her passion, experience and connections into a tailored packaged experience for a small limited group on November 2nd.
This August, I had the pleasure to join Myriam for a testrun of her lifestyle vacation. Influencers Polly Cocilobo, Daniella Duque, Janelle Lloyd and Marlot Willems experienced 5 day of the 9 days program and helped the Couturista team to perfect the agenda before the launch.
On the schedule: Michelin starred tasting menu feasts, truffle hunt and truffle dinner, guided shopping tours in luxury outlets and bespoke atelier, wine tasting in an award winning vineyard in Chianti and an exclusive inside guide to Florence.
Castello di Albola is an award winning vineyard in the Chianti Classico region. Myriam Angulo, a former residence of area, has been a friend of the owners for years and together with a local wine expert she showed us around the vineyard and the nearby town Radda. 4 courses launch paired with the local wine was served in the charming small restaurant where being a guest of the family friend got us VIP service.
It is not only a wine and dine deal. The Couturista experience takes its guests shopping in the bests spots in Florence and the area. Discovering the great deals of the best outlet malls in Tuscany, Couturista’s November shoppers will enjoy up to 80% off designer goods (+tax back to non EU visitors) such as Gucci, Prada, Armani, Ferragamo and many more. On the bespoke side of shopping Myriam will share her artisan secrets and will shop with her guests at the premium local atelier in Florence.
While the tour includes entrance to all famous Florentine museums, the real cultural highlight is a visit to The Ferragamo Museum. Salvatore Ferragamo founded his Atelier in 1927 in Florence and since its been one of the city’s most luxurious brands.
On another unforgettable day the group went truffle hunting followed up with a truffle tasting feast at the 5 stars hotel NH Collection Firenze Porta Rossa.
The farewell dinner took place at the Michelin Starred restaurant La Leggenda Dei Frati. With a panoramic view of Florence, an introduction to head chef Filippo Saporito, 7 course meal with wine pairing followed by a private visit to the Bardini Museum and gardens Couturista’s guests received a real VIP experience.
In theory, tourists are able to book by themselves a similar trip to Florence, but adding up together the price of transport, accommodation, restaurants, museum entrance and other attractions can add up to an overpriced complicated operation.
With years of experience Myriam Angulo and the Couturista team put your mind at ease. This VIP exclusive lifestyle vacation will take place in Florence on November 2nd and 6999 USD will include all adventures mentioned in this article and more.
Couturista 9 days exclusive experience in November has only 20 spots and JOYS readers will receive 250€ off using the voucher code ENJOYNOVEMBER.
