Sketchbook tours are fun, engaging and a creative way of connecting with your surroundings, and Todi certainly has tons of inspiration for that!

The workshop includes:
  • travel watercolor kit
  • brush
  • pencil
  • pen
  • loose leaf sketchbook
  • a bag to hold it all together
  • accommodation in a cozy apartment in the historical centre of Todi
