This year we have designed a special vacation which will offer us an insider's view of Italy. As we immerse in the local way of Italian life, we will become part of the landscape. Each city, castle town and village has something unique to offer in art, history and local specialties which should not be missed!
In the countryside of Tuscany and Umbria, we will be able to compare the art, beauty and regional culture while sampling the food and tasting the wine. Experience the friendlyness of the Italian people, the fruits and vegetables of the season, the pallet of colors of the Tuscan countryside and the local wines and cheeses.
We stop and smell the earth, to look at nature's colors and experience the serenity that surrounds us in the countryside.
In the cities, we will visit the downtowns, cathedrals, markets and stores and we will encounter local Italians sharing with us their daily lives. The architecture, the cityscapes, the churches, the paintings and sculptures are beautiful and breathtaking! Feel the experience of being part of the city heart beat and what it is like to actually live there!
Daily excursions will be provided to medieval castle towns, local farm inns and wineries. We will provide guided tours to castles, cathedrals, thermal baths, train rides, gourmet meals and wine tasting.
What sets us apart from other tours is the caring attention and personal service we provide each of our guests. As Tuscan natives, we are bilingual and really do know our way around! We enjoy the respect and friendships we have built with the locals and can offer our guests a genuinely authentic and enjoyable experience. We limit our group vacations to 16 guests at a time to maintain a small group environment. We travel together as a family.
