The Essence of Tuscany - A Classic Touring Holiday

Escorted Group Tours

Rolling hills draped with grapevines, honey-stone houses glowing in the late-afternoon sunshine and fields speckled with silvery olive trees - rural Tuscany really is a picture-perfect sight. On this relaxed Tuscany tour, we’ll combine the countryside with the region’s historic towns and cities, from Renaissance Florence to the ‘medieval Manhattan’ of San Gimignano. Over a leisurely eight days, we’ll see Siena’s shell-shaped piazza, sample superb wines in the heart of Chianti, walk Lucca’s imposing city walls and tour the home of Tuscany’s most famous opera composer, Giacomo Puccini.
