Detailed Description

Cypress trees, hilltop towns, historical homes, and idyllic artwork will abound throughout your 10-day Italy tour.  The picturesque beauty of Umbria and Tuscany invite love and romance from the charming fountains to the beautiful churches, the private dining experiences to the delicious wine pairings. The two of you will indulge in the passionate lifestyle at your preferred pace and discover the sculptures of Michelangelo and preserved ruins that date back to the Etruscans for a charismatic journey through Italy. Your journey will begin with your arrival at Rome Fiumicino Airport as your private transfer greets you at customs and escorts you into the heart of the Eternal City. Spend time strolling along the cobbled lanes and watching the gorgeous fountains before boarding your boat on the Tiber River for a fantastic dinner cruise.

Umbria offers a unique perspective of Italy and often overlooked by visitors traveling between Tuscany and Rome. Grandmothers cook pasta framed by their open doors along cobblestone streets as the landscape undulates between rugged mountain tops and hills bedecked with wildflowers and meadows. Explore the towns of Terni and Narni as the past meets the present, and then visit the tomb of St. Valentine and enjoy a view to the remarkable Marmore Falls before reaching Orvieto. Learn the art of making pasta and delectable traditional dishes with a couple’s cooking class on the historical streets of Spoleto, and then sample wine and olive oil as you stroll along the sloping cobbled streets of Assisi, home to the remarkable Basilica of St. Francis.

Begin with a wine tasting tour around Montalcino and sample the “King of Wines,” Brunello di Montalcino, while enjoying each other’s company around sensational Val d’Orcia. Tuscany is popular for its idyllic scenery as historical hilltop towns bring contemporary life into a world of fairytale architecture and remarkable medieval and Renaissance stories. The towns of Siena and San Gimignano offer magnificent vistas and secluded ambiance in which you can revel while Florence offers spectacular museums and a touch of Renaissance flare from the architecture, art, and Gregorian chants at San Miniato Church.  The two of you will have time to take it all in and add to your own romantic story while enjoying it all.
