Detailed Description

The truth about Tuscany is that it has an endless amount of beauty emanating from the land itself. The countryside is picturesque, and the towns have stepped out of a photograph. Your 8-day Tuscany tour for lovers provides you the luxuries of romance and the tenderness of history, where the crowds fade away, and the horizon fills with possibility.

The honeymoon ambiance begins with your arrival at the Florence International Airport where your private transfer greets you. Soon you find yourself in the charming hillside town of Siena, known for the Palio horse races held in the summer. The rest of the day is for you and your partner to familiarize yourselves with the wonders of the cityscape and the charm spreading across the cobblestone streets. In the evening, you can embrace the romance with an intimate dining experience to welcome you to the city. The following day, your private guide meets you at the hotel eager to show you the beauty of Siena beyond the central meandering streets, showing you the treasures of the medieval city.

Outside of Siena, you travel to the Umbrian border to visit Cortona, an ancient town with Etruscan heritage. The city has lovely frescoes and a stunning panorama of the valley. On your way back to Siena, you can stop at any number of hilltop villages decorating the countryside, including Lucignano. In the towns of San Gimignano and Certaldo, you have a view of either city situated on the hills, exuding power and pride in medieval towers and castles. Once in the city of Volterra, you find unique charm wrapped around the historic city walls and exuding from the rich tales shared throughout the city. Follow your time in Volterra with a private guided tour of nearby wineries that welcome you like old friends.

The following day you travel to the coastline of Maremma, in the town of Grosseto. Savor the sweet scent of the sea and the delicious flavors of a picnic packed by an artisan salumeria. Visit the hillside charm of Castiglione della Pescaia overlooking the water. With a full day in Pisa, you will visit the celebrated Leaning Tower before stepping beyond the Piazza dei Miracoli to experience the enchanting architecture and ambiance of the former grand coastal power. Upon your return to Siena, you can indulge in the traditional flavors of the region at a romantic candlelit dinner. On your final day, your private transfer meets you at your hotel and escorts you to Florence International Airport for your flight home, where you can watch the Tuscan countryside fade.
