Description

Join us on a boutique 8-day curated trip to visit one of the most exquisite and stunning Italian regions: Tuscany.

Live like an Italian from the minute you step off the plane and immerse yourself in Italian life and traditions. This trip is ultra special, and close to our hearts. We designed it meticulously based on years of insider knowledge in the region and our genuine love for Tuscany, it’s people, cuisine, and story. This Florence + Tuscany trip is full of details and extras to give you the same insider experiences we enjoy here in Florence and Tuscany. With STC you will always own your own schedule, yet at the same time be provided the experience of a lifetime filled with special one-of-a-kind authentic experiences. We have many friends and contacts in the region and you will meet several of them – and hopefully become friends too!

You will enjoy the local cuisine, an entire course on Italian wine, wine tours & tastings, day trips to local Tuscan towns with a friend & licensed expert guide, relaxing time on a farm (agriturismo/winery) with a pool, Tuscan cooking class, course on Tuscan wine, wine tours with several tastings and local experiences, and more. Get ready to immerse yourself in that beautiful slow Tuscan life and enjoy the perfect balance of curated insider experiences, leisure time, and historical and cultural learning. You will also have as much time as you like to relax, in the vineyards, on your patio, or poolside.

Both Amy and Maria will be here in Florence and Tuscany with you all day every day at your complete disposal 100% of the time. We can provide reservation help, language help, or anything else. We support local small businesses and sustainable tourism.

The highlight of this tour is the chance to discover and experience Tuscany like a local with the warm hospitality of local people, great food and wine experiences, and beloved Italian traditions . We support and promote family run local businesses.
