We’ll give you an insider view of this Tuscan gem as we follow the path of the ancient castles and villages that were developed by the Old Roman Empire. We will uncover the spiritual part of Tuscany that is all too often disregarded on contemporary tours of the region. A Tuscany that is rich in surprise and breathtaking moments awaits.

We will have lunch in Poppi, an unforgettable medieval village that far too many visitors to Tuscany completely overlook. This city is home to spellbinding stories and fascinating mysteries that are waiting for you to uncover. We will end our journey with a trip to the ancient monastery of Saint Francis of Assisi before enjoying dinner in one of the best pizzeria in the area.

MONDAY: Wine, cheese and lots of beef (the world famous Chianina)

Our tour will continue with a visit to the city walls, where you’ll have an opportunity to watch skilled tradesmen and women at work using traditional manufacturing techniques to shape copper in their old artisan shops. We’ll also stop by some of the characteristic enoteche (wine shops).

The day will end in Lucignano village for a dinner before a visit to one of the oldest farms of the Val di Chiana to learn more about Chianina cow  and Cinta Senese pork.
