Indulgent Tuscany

(9 Days - Departs Daily on a Private Basis)
Florence, Tuscan hills, Tuscan coast

This tour features the most indulgent cultural, culinary and wellness experiences and luxurious hotels and resorts in Tuscany, including in-depth private touring of the top highlights of Florence and the iconic Tuscany countryside, from medieval hill towns and renowned vineyards to a legendary seaside resort on the coast.

Begin in Florence. With your private expert guide, tour the city's highlights according to your interests. Enjoy skip-the-line access at world-renowned museums such as the Uffizi and Accademia, browse antiques and artisan workshops of the Oltrarno district, tour historic squares, learn about Tuscan cuisine at specialty food shops and the Mercato Centrale, see the impressive Great Synagogue or stroll through the beautiful Boboli Gardens. Perhaps also visit less-frequented but fascinating museums, such as the Convent of San Marco Museum, with its frescoes by Fra Angelico, local fashion museums (Gucci, Ferragamo and others) or the excellent Museo del Bargello, a prison in the 13th century and now home to sculpture by Michelangelo and Donatello. During free time, enjoy leisurely meals, walks along the Arno River and shopping for Florentine gold jewelry, handmade paper, leather goods, antiques and housewares. Upon request, Artisans of Leisure can arrange additional touring such as access to private art collections and specialty museums, visits to renowned local gardens, and other activities.

Next, you will be transferred to a luxurious spa resort in the heart of Tuscany. En route, explore celebrated hill towns such as Siena and San Gimignano. During private touring in the region, other beautiful towns you may wish to visit include Pienza, Montalcino and Montepulciano. Walk medieval alleys and admire palazzi and ancient towers, and enjoy time to browse for olive oil, wine, baskets, cheeses, olive wood and ceramics. Taste wines at their source, listen to white-robed monks sing haunting Gregorian chants in a Romanesque church, or shop for designer goods at excellent outlet shops—the Tuscany touring will be determined by your interests. One day, enjoy a Tuscan cooking class at a renowned cooking school. During free time at your beautiful resort, additional activities can be arranged, such as truffle hunting, a private tour and tasting at a winery, cheese-making, guided nature walks, biking and hiking. Upon request, Artisans of Leisure can arrange wellness therapies and yoga classes in the Tuscan countryside. Set within the grounds of what was once a medieval healing sanctuary for pilgrims, the luxurious spa at your resort offers an impressive range of Eastern and Western holistic therapies that feature therapeutic herbs and fresh ingredients from the surrounding gardens.

End on the Tuscan coast at one of Italy's most exclusive seaside resort hotels. While there, enjoy the resort's leisure facilities, including the hotel's private shoreline and heated saltwater pool. Upon request, we can arrange sailing excursions to nearby islands, scenic drives along the coast, spa treatments, guided hikes and more.
