About this trip
Have you always wanted to live "la dolce vita"? Then this Wine & Wandering through Tuscany retreat is perfect for you. Come see the magnificent sites Tuscany has to offer, and taste the delicious food and wine that has made her world famous. After each day's travels, there will be plenty of time to relax and sip some Chianti at your comfortable accommodations.
The agriturismo offers fully furnished apartments and breathtaking views from the poolside patio. The wandering we will be doing is very simple walking, no hiking involved, and can be done with a nice glass of wine in hand without spilling a single drop.
You will see Florence from a 'foodies' perspective, taste the splendor that the medieval hill towns of Montepulciano and San Gimignano have to offer, experience the Mugello Valley's amazing food and wine while wandering through diverse fruit orchards, award-winning vineyards, hills steeped with ancient castles, beautiful olive orchards, and much, much more!
