Under the Tuscan Sun
Your lucky group of 4 (2 couples) will spend 7 beautiful nights in Tuscany exploring this incredible region!
Tuscany, with its awe-inspiring landscapes, artistic heritage, culinary greatness, excellent wine, and all-over beauty, combine to create the perfect recipe for living the dolce vita! Soft rolling hills, lines of cypress trees, endless vineyards, orderly olive groves, picturesque towns, friendly people...simply being here will make you feel like you are in the right place in the world. This will be your setting for a trip of a lifetime!
While here you will stay in a charming apartment for 7 enchanted evenings, situated in the heart of town, with two bedrooms and two bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, and a nice living area. Furnished with elegance and traditional Italian decor, it perfectly blends modern with traditional. The apartment is just steps away from the town's main square and from everything you might need during your stay.
The spectacular medieval town of Cortona is known as the setting for the book and movie Under the Tuscan Sun. It is a charming hilltop town, founded in the Etruscan era, before the Romans, with evidence that the town existed as far back as seven centuries before Christ. The easy and relaxed vibe will capture your heart as you stroll past the countless restaurants, quaint boutiques, artisanal shops, and friendly cafes. The town's location is in a strategic position between Florence, Rome, Siena, Assisi, and the wine regions of Montepulciano, Montalcino, and Chianti, making it the perfect base for exploring Tuscany!
This trip of a lifetime is complete with you being welcomed with a lovely aperitivo in the hippest wine bar in the city. There is no better way to ease yourself into the Italian lifestyle than with a proper aperitivo, the most cherished time of day for everyone! Then, during the week, you will have the chance to explore the town as we have arranged for you to have an informative and fun foodie tour led by a private guide. You will experience Cortona through several delicious stops, from the bakery to the butcher, a wine bar, and the final stop that you will not want to miss, for ice cream! But this is not all! On another day, arrangements have been made for you to visit a famous local winery. Here you will have a private tour of the vineyard and cellar that will culminate with a fantastic lunch and wine pairing while at the vineyard!
