At a glance

Wine and dine your way around Tuscany, a place of great natural beauty. You’ll discover the Renaissance masterpieces of Florence and then discover less well-known parts of Italy. The walled medieval city of Siena awaits, home of the notorious horse race. You’ll also visit a castle that’s been the home of the same family since 1141.

Throughout your trip you’ll be eating plenty of gelato, attending cookery classes and drinking the finest wines. You’ll even taste some olive oil from the medieval cellars of a castle in Chianti.

LGBT rights in Italy

LGBTQ+ Italians enjoy a host of equality and anti-discrimination laws. However, same-sex couples are not able to adopt children together, and the country recently elected an anti-LGBTQ+ government. Italy is a very religious country, but the major cities are all home to vibrant gay scenes.
