DAY 1: AUTHENTIC TUSCANY IN ONE DAY

Welcome to Florence, the cradle of the Renaissance. In the morning we will set off by bus to discover the authentic Tuscany in the direction of Pisa, Siena and San Gimignano. Close your eyes and find yourself immersed in the magical light of Piazza del Campo, open them again to breathe in the atmosphere of San Gimignano, and find yourself admiring the charm of the challenge between the Leaning Tower of Pisa and the force of gravity. We will have lunch with typical Tuscan food. The tour will end with a visit to an exclusive winery in the Chianti region. Here you will participate in a wine tasting and have the opportunity to taste and purchase wine and typical products. At the end, you will be driven back to Florence. 

Free dinner and overnight stay on request.

DAY 2: TUSCANY BETWEEN ART AND WINE

What could be better than waking up in front of the Baptistery of Florence? For your second day, meet in the centre of Florence to visit the places where Florentines spend their free time: Piazza del Duomo, Piazza della Signoria, Ponte Vecchio and others. It will be a complete walking tour, during which you will experience the city just like a true Florentine. Lunch is free but we absolutely recommend these 3 street foods: the lampredotto sandwich, the schiacciata and the coccoli. If you have never tried Florence's renowned street food, you absolutely must. In the afternoon, you will head to the Chianti area for a tour that will allow you to explore the authenticity of the flavours of the Tuscan countryside and discover natural winemaking, to capture the taste notes that a good glass can convey. You know the typical avenue of cypress trees, printed on every postcard in any souvenir shop? Well yes, you will be able to walk along one of these avenues and take memorable photos of authentic Tuscany. Time remains to end the day with a walk in Monteriggioni to breathe in the village air with its typical shops.

Free dinner and overnight stay on request.

DAY 3: AMONG THE CYPRESSES OF THE VAL D'ORCIA

A day in the midst of art, culture and red wine. Would you like to have an unforgettable experience in the most impressive places in Tuscany? Come with us to visit magnificent cities and taste the best wines in a single day. The tour begins with a visit to a characteristic wine cellar in the Val d'Orcia, where you will taste locally produced wines. You will find yourself in Montepulciano, where the majesty of its Renaissance palaces and the refined beauty of its churches are combined with the ancient tradition of its Nobile di Montepulciano wine, symbol of the city and delight for your palate. When you visit Pienza and Montepulciano, two artistic jewels from which you can admire the landscape of the Val d'Orcia, you will experience true Tuscan beauty. Pienza is a perfect combination of harmony and architectural beauty. Return to Florence in the evening, free dinner and overnight stay on request.

DAY 4: EXCURSION TO THE CINQUE TERRE

Have you ever heard of a little corner of paradise called the Cinque Terre? If you look up the Cinque Terre on the map, you will be able to spot them by going a little further north from Tuscany. This unique landscape, suspended on steep cliffs overlooking the sea, is not so easy to reach, which is why we will travel by bus/train. The villages where we will stop will be: La Spezia, Manarola, Vernazza, Monterosso, Riomaggiore and/or Portovenere, depending on the route. Not only will you see many different towns in a day trip. Not only will you get all the useful information our guides provide, but you will see some unique places. Free lunch in Monterosso al mare. We will return to Florence in the evening. Free dinner and overnight stay on request.
