Detailed Description

Greenery surrounds the manicured fairway that guides your eye to the green. Red wine swirls in the opulent glass, reflecting the layers of ruby hues produced on a private vineyard. Your 8-day tour will encompass golf and grapes, fabulous cuisine and delicate history as you are led from Rome to Tuscany, and into the Umbrian countryside. Your tour will begin with your arrival in Rome, often referred to as the Eternal City. Your private transfer will escort you into the heart of the historical city where you will settle in at your luxurious hotel. Your guide will lead you through the streets of Rome on an engaging introductory tour of the iconic monuments ranging from the Spanish Steps to the Colosseum.

You will wake the next day, and your private transfer will meet you at your hotel and take you into the Lazio countryside as you head north to the edge of Tuscany. En route to the Argentario Peninsula, you will stop at the ancient sites of Cerveteri and Tarquinia, both remnants of the Etruscan-Italic tribe. The next day, you will step onto the golf course that edges up to the nature reserve of Laguna di Orbetello. Enjoy a full round of golf before you visit the small, historical town of Orbetello. Continue to travel deeper into the heart of Tuscany as you visit the vineyards around Montalcino, home to the celebrated Brunello wines. After a chance to sample all of the remarkable wines, you can play nine holes at a club who just offer rounds to guests staying at the resort.

The next day, you will give your body and mind a rest with a luxury wine tasting tour of Montepulciano, home to the Vino Nobile. Enjoy a gourmet lunch paired with the flavors of the wine before you stroll through the historical town of Cortona en route to your private Umbrian villa. Continue the next day with a tremendous opportunity to play the championship layout course at Antognolla Golf Club for a complete round. In the afternoon, you will visit the charming hilltop town of Assisi to enjoy the Basilica, the frescoes, and the beautiful medieval architecture.

Next, you will play the uniquely designed course of Perugia Golf Club before you enjoy a wine cellar tour around the famous vineyards of Torgiano. Conclude the next morning as your private transfer will meet you at your private villa. If you have time, you can explore the marvelous city of Perugia before you continue to Umbria’s International Airport for your flight home. You can also opt to return to Rome and delight in more time to discover the layers of a city redesigned throughout the millennia.
