About this trip

All of our Yoga & Wellness Retreats consist of a well-balanced ratio of guided tours and practicing yoga. We collaborate with an agriturismo near the city of Florence who has the most beautiful yoga patio they built just for yogis! You'll be in privacy with your group while looking out over olive orchards, vineyards, and villas. The in-house chef was trained in Venice, and has your health and wellness in mind. Surround yourself in rolling Tuscan hills while on this retreat and do not forget to practice la dolce vita by the beautiful pool.


While not practicing yoga, or the art of relaxing by the pool, you'll have an Italian Tour Manager along with you on all of your day trips. On this retreat you will taste the flavors of Florence, see the romantic sights of Cortona, experience ancient history and art in Volterra, and bath in hot springs in the hills of Tuscany. You will leave stronger, healthier, rested, well-traveled, and not to mention well-fed!

Comfortably adventurous. For me it was a good pace of exploring and eating. When we did cooking and tastings it was like going to a family members or friends house. Personally I would have like a little more hands on cooking but really enjoyed what we did. Looking forward to trying it at home!
We had the best time! We hadn’t met the other 8 in our group, but we became friends instantly. Fantastic group that got along, looked out for each other, and had common interests. Alessio was a wonderful tour guide and did a fantastic job. Everyone we met was so passionate about the city they lived in or their family business. Our accommodations were very comfortable and our host, Stefano, was gracious and was always there to greet us when we returned from our excursions. The city’s we visited were beautiful and the history was rich. Overall a great experience and we will have memories of a lifetime. I would highly recommend bio-montetoursofitaly to anyone.

First, Italy is truly breathtaking and the culture is incredibly welcoming. There was not one disappointing moment of the trip. From arrival to a very depressing departure, we were blown away daily with the care, quality and thoughtfulness of every aspect of the tour. The accommodations far exceeded anything we dreamed and each day was filled with authentic, cultural experiences. We even laughed at some of the large guided tour groups with their lanyards, paddle boards, and ear pieces. We were being gifted a true and organic front seat ride through Italy without all the stiffness that comes with a structured tour. It made it much more enjoyable. Lastly, biggest shout out to Alessio for his tireless dedication to our group, ensuring we had the best experience possible. We asked several questions, requested a few schedule changes, and a few trips to the grocery and he never hesitated to go above and beyond for us. His knowledge of his beloved country is deep and wide and it's apparent how much he finds joy in showing others. I've never been on a trip where my gut was literally sick with sadness as I left. We bonded, made so many memories, laughed harder than we had in ages, cried together, and lived that la dolce vita to its fullest. Thank you Bio-Monte for your heart and soul in this beautiful Italian getaway!
Amazing intimate experiences with local people - great food, fabulous wines. Thank you for creating this tour.
Five stars! Excellent organization. Adjustments were made to fit the walking abilities of the group. The food was fantastic and very much appreciated by everyone in the group. Chef Anna, Driver Luciano, friend Stefano all became dear friends as they enhanced the experience. Dicomano is a wonderful village experience, and we enjoyed the "villa" we were housed in. The day trips were fantastic. The free time was well used by everyone and we appreciated the advice by the organizers. We had plenty of time to take photographs as we wished.
