Arrive in Florence, the cradle of the Renaissance, where you will be greeted by a private driver and taken to your hotel. The world’s finest Renaissance city is then yours to explore.
Once you’ve settled in, take the opportunity to leisurely explore Florence. Stroll through its historic streets, absorb the vibrant culture, and perhaps enjoy a relaxing evening meal at one of the city’s many exquisite restaurants.
Remember to take a stroll through the Oltrarno quarter and visit some artisanal workshops. It would be rude not to visit some of the wine bars and gelaterias.
Spend the morning enveloped in the artistic and historical wonders of Florence. Explore the renowned Uffizi Gallery, home to masterpieces of the Renaissance, and stand in awe of Michelangelo’s David at the Accademia Gallery.
Wander through the city’s heart, from the Florence Cathedral to the Ponte Vecchio, each step a journey through history.
Today you’ll also go on a guided tour of a local food market. You’ll then attend a cooking class, learning some of the secrets of Italian cuisine.
You can visit the boutique shops of Ponte Vecchio, perhaps in the early morning if you want to avoid the crowds. The Dumo is also a must-see; beneath the dome, you’ll see Vasari’s masterpiece, The Last Judgment.
Who messed up that Leaning Tower? Today you’ll take a trip to the city of Pisa and find out. You’ll find the iconic building in the Piazza dei Miracoli.
Enjoy the blend of remarkable history and contemporary Italian culture that Pisa embodies.
Pisa is an optional addition – if you prefer you can spend another full day in Florence.
Today you’ll head to the Tuscan countryside and visit the Chianti Classico wine production area.
You can visit the Medieval Castello di Brolio, home to the Ricasoli family ever since 1141. You’ll take a tour of the vineyards and the wine cellars.
At the hotel, you’ll be able to sample more of the region’s finest wines. You can also try some olive oil from the 12th-century cellar.
Visit the verdant Val d’Orcia landscapes dotted with cypress groves and medieval villages.
After a luxury picnic, you can choose from a range of activities including a cookery class with a master gelato maker, pottery classes or even stargazing.
Take a trip to the medieval walled city of Siena. The central piazza is Europe’s best medieval square and the site of the wild horse race – the closest you’ll get to a medieval sporting event.
The stunning art and architecture of Siena will dazzle, and it’s never as busy as Florence. While you’re in town you must check out the frescoes in Piccolomini library.
Enjoy the unique ambiance of this historic city, relishing lunch in a traditional trattoria.
After breakfast, it’ll be time to say goodbye to the sunlit splendours of Tuscany and transfer to the airport for your return flight.
