DAY 1 – Siena, San Gimignano and Tuscan Dinner: Welcome to Tuscany!

Meet your dedicated guide and driver in Florence and set off to discover two of Tuscany’s most remarkable jewel towns (our staff will take care of your luggage, delivering it directly to your Hotel). Your first stop will be Siena. Set in a beautiful landscape, surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, it is one of the most enchanting medieval cities in Italy. Led by your specialized knowledgeable guide discover the town's most striking sights, admire Piazza del Campo - where twice a year dashing horses compete in the heart-rendering Palio race - and enjoy a flavorful surprise: a tasting of a local specialty.
Then travel on to San Gimignano, UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the most splendid examples of an ancient walled town. Renowned as “the city of beautiful towers” it boasts an exceptional skyline, is certainly one of the and most well-preserved, towns in the whole of Italy and has, in fact, been used as a background in many movies. Stroll the maze of quaint cobblestone streets at leisure, discovering the many tall towers, once homes, which characterize the town.
Then journey on to your Hotel, to check in and relax enjoying the view of the vineyard-clad Chianti hills before savoring a scrumptious genuine Tuscan dinner. Enjoy the mouthwatering flavors of an authentic typical meal splendidly paired with different excellent wines.

DAY 2 – Breathtaking vistas, cliff villages and outstanding seafood:  Le Cinque Terre

After a delicious breakfast at the Hotel, and a brief drive, meet your dedicated guide and minivan and fellow travelers and depart for Le Cinque Terre, one of the world's most spectacular coastal areas. Enjoy the privilege of exploring this fairytale destination in a small group, led by the knowledge and personal attention of your dedicated guide.

Unveil the secrets and authentic charm of the area off-the-beaten tourist path, relish the flavors of ancient typical cuisine and aromas of sensational wines. Set amid some of the most dramatic coastal scenery on the planet le Cinque Terre, five ingeniously constructed fishing villages, are a Unesco World Heritage site since 1997, and still today look very much like a version of a seafront garden of Eden! Travel in full comfort aboard our comfortable minivan, lay back and admire the scenery: sinuous paths run across stunning cliffsides, and a 19th-century railway line cut through a series of coastal tunnels ferries the footsore from village to village. Learn all about the Cinque Terre's history and unique feature from your guide: the steeply terraced cliffs bisected by a complicated system of fields and gardens hacked, chiseled, shaped and layered over the course of nearly two millennia. So marked are these artificial contours that some scholars have compared the extensive “muretti” (low stone walls) to the Great Wall of China! And all enhanced by the charming villages - Riomaggiore, founded in the 8th century by Greek settlers fleeing persecution in Byzantium, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Monterosso - which look onto the gleaming pristine waters of the sea. Lose yourself in the gorgeous scenery, hike/walk along the famous trails and explore a few of the fascinating villages traveling by boat, train and on foot.

Crown your day with a memorable typical Ligurian seafood feast, and exquisite regional white wines, in a lovely seafront restaurant.

Learn about the area's one-of-a-kind grape harvesting techniques enjoying an exclusive leisurely hike through luxuriant seafront vineyards: nobody in sight apart from the deep blue sea, verdant vines, your group and guide. Weather and sea conditions permitting you will also admire the scenario from the water during a fabulous cruise.

At the end of the tour travel back to the Hotel and enjoy more luscious Tuscan flavor: the chef’s daily specialties!

DAY 3 – Tuscany Wineland Safari: a thrilling off-road journey to discover the most beautiful spots of the rolling Chianti hillside
After enjoying breakfast and checking out meet your professional driver guide at Relais Villa Olmo and set off with a roar aboard a sturdy off-road Land Rover Discovery. Travel along winding roads lined by swaying cypress trees to an authentic period farmhouse, explore the grounds and wander through the mysterious cellars. Journey on through the beautiful Tuscan hilltop silent roads: you will see quaint villages, golden meadows, vineyards and a magnificent ancient abbey dating back to the 13th century!

Catch hidden views, take splendid photos and stop alongside a lovely field for a picnic snack and some fabulous local wine. The fresh breeze and sweet scents of the countryside will lead you straight to the greenest heart of the Chianti Classico hills, where luxuriant vineyards sparkle and thrive, to relish the best of Tuscan local fare during a memorable 3-course typical lunch accompanied by the rich aroma of Chianti wine. Crown your day viewing a real Tuscan hillside jewel: a majestic Medieval castle, with its fascinating turrets and merlons, rising in an outstanding position.
Take in the last, unforgettable views, traveling back to Florence by minivan.

 Arrivederci!
