About the tour
Silvery olive groves and colorful vineyards sit upon a terrain filled with undulating hills and vistas so impressive that they have inspired centuries of art in Tuscany. This region in central Italy is beloved as the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance and has long been a destination celebrated for its gastronomy. This 8-day independent journey is your chance to immerse yourself in all its offerings. The itinerary follows a roundtrip course from Rome and includes visits to widely known cities and smaller towns alike. Spend several nights in Florence and Siena, and enjoy day trips to delightful destinations, the Chianti region, and Montalcino. Each day brings a new opportunity to delve into Italian culture through well-planned excursions either alongside a guide on your own or with an intimate travel group. Enjoy walking tours, guided excursions by foot or motorcoach, visits to cathedrals, tastings of regional offerings at vineyards and wine cellars, and, of course, plenty of time to sightsee independently.
