Itinerary

April 24
Arrival in Tuscany

After an overnight flight, you will arrive in Florence and be whisked away through the scenic Tuscan landscapes to your home for the next 6 nights. The Etruscan estate is located on an 1100 acre nature reserve in the hills of Tuscany. Its 12th century castle tower, 16th century villa, Fattoria farm center and outlying farmsteads attest to its historic identification with the land and life of rural Tuscany.  Every evening you will be treated to a wine reception on the terrace, followed by a four course Italian meal, paired with wine made from the estate's own grapes.
