We’ve negotiated $1850 in savings on our most luxurious Tuscany offer yet.

You’ll stay in an 11th-century-castle-turned-5-star hotel and spa, drink Brunello di Montalcino wine (one of Italy’s best wines, made from the vineyards surrounding the hotel), and eat dinner at a Michelin-starred restaurant — all while soaking in spectacular views of Tuscany’s UNESCO World Heritage Landscape, Val d’Orcia.

Not only does this exclusive package cost about half what you’d typically pay for this experience, but you can use this deal through June 2022.

What’s Included

  • For $1989, two people can spend 3 nights in a romantic upgraded suite in the historic castle, with a separate living room and view of the vineyards (normally $850-$1400 per night)

    • Daily breakfast for two
    • Multi-course dinner for two at one of two Michelin-star restaurants, or at the castle’s restaurant (see details below; reg. $250)
    • Educational blindfolded wine-tasting for two, including cheeses and meats, during which you’ll learn how to distinguish between four Tuscan wines, including Brunello, “one of Italy’s most revered wines,” per Food & Wine ($500 value)
    • $100 credit to be used at the spa or toward a cooking class with the castle’s award-winning chef
    • A bottle of the estate’s Brunello di Montalcino 2014 to enjoy during your trip or take home (reg. $140)

  • Extra-night stays with breakfast are $429 — buy multiple vouchers to stay as long as you want (you can also buy multiple 3-night vouchers, including all the above perks)

  • Not available on: Jan. 15-April 1, 2021 or 2022 (hotel closed); August 2021, Christmas, New Year’s Eve, Easter or Italian holidays
