Classic Tuscany

Treat yourself to a week under the Tuscan sun; slow down to take in the classic sights of Volterra, San Gimignano, Colle Val D’Elsa Monteriggioni and Siena on foot—the best way to relax and immerse yourself in Tuscany.

Follow trails between hilltop towns, set against an undulating patchwork of vineyards and villas. Farmhouse lunches are filled with local organic gourmet goodies— matured pecorino, soft ricotta, homemade pasta, saffron treats, sweet vin santo and castagnaccio chestnut cake. This week-long trip includes 2 nights each in Volterra, San Gimignano and Siena, combining rewarding walks with time to lose yourself in the medieval, Renaissance and Gothic architecture.
