Food & Drink

Tuscany is not only famous for its art and culture but also for its excellent cuisine and good wines. And at the Campo we like to enjoy life's pleasures like eating and drinking together.

For this, our Italian cook Monica caters with a typical Tuscan 3-course-lunch meal during the period when instruction is taking place. All ingredients are from the region, some herbs and vegetables are planted by the chef himself, so you can be sure that everything is absolutely fresh. The shared lunch at the Campo is also a great experience because painters, sculptors and other guests meet at this meal to discuss their work and get to know each other.

If you wish to cook yourself, there is a local food store, the Alimentari, where you can buy typical products from the region, especially excellent cheese and sausage as well as fresh vegetables, pasta and bread.

Cold drinks, tea, coffee, cappuccino or espresso are available at all times at the Campo. Our legendary house wines – white: "Vernaccia di San Gemingnano" and red: "Rosso di Montepulciano" – are offered at the end of the day’s work.

The Ristorante Michelangelo

Every course at the Campo begins with a shared meal at the Ristorante Michelangelo in Azzano. The owners Maestro Sandro and his wife Maria Emilia run the only restaurant in Azzano already in the second generation and offer a wide range of Tuscan and Italian meals.  There is also great pizza baked in the wood-fired oven. Sandro is also a sommelier and will be delighted to advise you about exclusive wines. You can drink your morning cappuccino here. Additionally, they have a bar, journals, sweets, cigarettes, cocktails and last but not least: gelati (ice-cream).
