Departure from the U.S.
Arrival in your first destination, charming Lucca, Italy, where you will check into the Palace Hotel!
You will have your first full day to get acquainted with Lucca.
You will go on a guided tour of the quarries. Carrara Marble is famous for its use in sculpture and monumental buildings.
The highlight of the trip, Florence, was the birthplace of much of Italy’s (and the world’s) best known art and architecture. Wine lovers will be pleased to finish off the day in the heart of the Chianti region.
Beyond sampling fabled Chianti wines, you will see how olive oil is processed and have lunch in a local farmhouse.
You will move on to San Galgano and to the site of its fabled abbey begun in the 1200’s.
Next you will visit the medieval city of Siena, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and then onward to Pienza, the latter area the birthplace of Pope Pius II.
More top destinations for wine lovers, Montepulciano, where you can sample its robust red wine.
Back to Etruscan times:
Next you will have an excursion to Pitigliano which dates back to Etruscan times.
From Pienza, you will visit the picturesque Lake Trasimeno and then Assisi, famous as the home of St. Francis. Next you will continue on to the Trevi region.
The next day will find you hunting truffles. Unlike grouse hunting you won’t have to be a good shot! However, in Italy where you will hunt truffles with pigs, watch out that your “porcine associate” does not greedily gobble up everything he finds!
From the Norcia Valley, you will move on to a different kind of adventure, a raft trip gliding along the Nera River!
From Umbria, you will travel to Rome to depart the next day or connect with an additional local tour.
