We’ve designed this tour as a sampler that provides a taste of the many pleasures that Florence and Tuscany have to offer. You’ll have a chance to go wine tasting in Chianti, visit medieval castles, see art treasures of the Renaissance, explore Tuscany’s picturesque towns and villages, and enjoy the exquisite local cuisine.
We’ll be staying at charming, historic 4-star hotels in Tuscany. We’ll spend the first portion of our week in Florence at a gracious hotel situated in a 15th-century palazzo in the historic core of the city, only steps away from many of the world’s greatest collections of artistic masterpieces.
For the next portion of our adventure in Tuscany, we’ll be based in a tiny village in the Chianti region at an elegant boutique hotel that was an 18th-century noble residence. From here, we’ll visit the fascinating medieval city of Siena with its world-famous Gothic cathedral. And we’ll make several short excursions to explore wine, food, and art in the marvelous hill-towns and villages that make this one of the most beautiful areas of Tuscany.
Lastly, we transfer to the ancient Etruscan town of Cortona which has recently been made famous by the book and movie, Under the Tuscan Sun. We’ll be staying in a luxurious palazzo in the old town at the top of the mountain with commanding views of the Valdichiana plains down below.
You will have the opportunity to experience both the excitement and stimulus of the cities of Florence and Siena and the beauty and tranquility of rural Tuscan life. The small size of our group (maximum 16 participants) allows us to move about without following a red umbrella and to eat in restaurants and trattorias that are popular with the locals. In addition to breakfast, we share one full-course meal every day as a group, either lunch or dinner. Be prepared for a week of feasting at some of the finest restaurants in Tuscany!
The Best of Tuscany Tour combines daily planned activities along with unstructured time that you may spend as you like. If you have special activities that you’d like to pursue during the unscheduled portions of our tour in Tuscany, we’re happy to help you arrange it. And if you’d like to visit other special places in Italy either before or after the tour, we’ll be glad to assist with bookings, transfers, guides and all the rest.
During the course of the tour, we offer presentations and slideshows to help you better appreciate the art and the places we visit. The rest of the time, we attend to all the details to make your travel adventure as smooth as possible. You get to relax and experience The Best of Tuscany!
