 Day 2: San Gimignano and Volterra
Today we will enjoy the town of San Gimignano. The daunting family towers can be seen from far away. Each family kept trying to surpass the others building higher and higher towers, and these impressive structures stand testimony to this competitive spirit to this day. We then make our way to Volterra, famous for its alabaster. The former Etruscan settlement is located on a hill with a splendid view of the surroundings. On request, a visit to an alabaster laboratory can be arranged.

Day 3: Pienza, Montepulciano and Montalcino
Pope Pius II wanted to transform his birthplace Pienza into a model city of the Renaissance, a goal which he only partially reached with the construction of the cathedral, papal palace and city hall. We will then reach Montepulciano, which makes the heart of all wine connoisseurs beat faster, as here the famous Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is grown. The tasting of different red wines and regional specialties will be a delighting experience. Last but not least we will stop in Montalcino, known for its Brunello wine, the old town is situated on a hill and out-shines the entire surrounding countryside.

Day 4: Chianti Classico Wine Festival
We will go on a journey of discovery through the Tuscan area Chianti, famous for its red wine of the same name. The striking hilly territory lies between Florence to the north and Siena to the south . We will be absolutely enchanted by the gorgeous setting consisting of rolling hillside vineyards, cypress-lined roads and medieval hill towns on the horizon. The highlight of our day will be the Chianti Wine Festival in Greve in Chianti. We may stroll from stall to stall along the narrow streets with a glass of wine in our hand and enjoy the different wines. Our coach driver will take us back to the hotel safe and sound.

Day 5: Siena and Arezzo and Farewell dinner
We take a morning drive to the old-town of Siena: the highlight is the Piazza del Campo, the seashell-shaped square on which the famous horse-race, the Palio, takes place each year. Another site not to be missed is the imposing Cathedral.
In the afternoon we will drive to discover the fairly unknown town of Arezzo. We will see the Romanesque church of S. Maria della Pieve and the Piazza Grande, scene of a historical knights’ tournament. We will enjoy our last dinner together in a Tuscan country estate.
