Experiences that embrace the Italian way.
The Italian lifestyle captures beauty, gastronomical delights, and antiquity. As your host, I will take your experience a step further and ensure that one of the most fulfilling details to travel is met: The luxury of time. I offer personalized attention to your journey and invite the leisurely pace to life that Italy nurtures for a vacation that is both comfortable and memorable. You will become deeply intertwined in the local culture with experiences that stray from the traditional approach to tourism.
Luxury Boutique Hotels
A rich Tuscan experience begins with your accommodation. I hand select boutique hotel brands that are as authentic and historical as the region for a total of eight nights.
You will explore the diverse UNESCO heritage sites that make Tuscany such a special place. Italy's rolling green hills, colorful piazzas, and rich relationship with art will be experienced through the guided tour of locally licensed- English speaking guides over the course of nine days.
Unique visits to small, family- owned producers of wine, cheese, olive oil, and other delicacies of the region will introduce you to the Italian flavor in its purest form.
The countryside not only flourishes with vineyards and natural beauty. You will be welcomed to a once- owned Medici country estate for a luxury visit to one of the most powerful family names in history.
Intimately experience the local scene.
My philosophy is inspired by the value of working with small groups of six members. This serves as an opportunity for me to meet your needs thoughtfully and allow for a fluid travel experience as we journey through the central region of Tuscany and return home to Florence.
Included from the Florence airport upon arrival and to the Pisa or Florence airport for departure.
