Itinerary

Fly to Florence
Day 1-4

Florence

Dive straight into your Tuscan exploration in Florence, birthplace of the Renaissance and home of Italian art and culture. Spend three nights here at Continentale, a highly stylish boutique owned by the Ferragamo family, it is the place to be and be seen in Florence. La Terrazza Rooftop Bar is the crowning glory of the Continentale, with spectacular 360 degree views across the Florentine skyline you will be spoiled for choice as to which view to capture first, all to be enjoyed with a drink in hand as you watch the sun slowly set on the horizon.

Spend a day exploring Florence from the river that winds through the city. Hop on board your private boat accompanied by your expert guide and cruise along the Arno, passing underneath the famous Ponte Vecchio and taking in the views of Florence's many palazzos. Look out for the Uffizi Gallery as you pass by and enjoy a glass of Prosecco on board whilst soaking up the true ambiance that surrounds you.

Accommodation: Continentale ( 3 nights )
Day 4-8

Tuscany

Your next stop is the magnificent rolling hills of rural Tuscany. Renowned for its breath-taking landscapes, this region is known as one of Italy’s most beautiful, thanks to its verdant hills scattered with olive groves and vineyards. Here you’ll spend four nights at the exclusive COMO Castello del Nero, a luxurious retreat nestled in the undulating hills of the Chianti region of Tuscany. Siena, Florence and Pisa are just a stone's throw away and you can take your pick from superb local Chianti wineries. Relax at COMO Shambhala Retreat, the first in Europe, an elegant, cocooning sanctuary for therapeutic treatments including massage, yoga and Guinot facials.

Of course whilst you are here you must sample the delectable Chianti wines. On a private tasting tour, start at Castello di Fonterutoli and enjoy a private tour of the cellar, where you'll learn about their contemporary production techniques which boast a low environmental impact. Taste a selection of the wines before continuing on to Badia a Coltibuono, once a fortified monastery, where you'll enjoy a delicious lunch alongside the wines. Cycle through the spectacular Val d'Orcia on an e-bike with your private guide. Starting with a guided walk through Pienza, your guide will then lead you on bikes through the beautiful landscapes to the medieval village of Monticchiello, then on to the Bagno Vignoni thermal baths, before you return to Pienza.  During your stay in Tuscany, take part in as many of the activities as you’d like, or simply relax and take in the incredible views.

Accommodation: COMO Castello del Nero ( 4 nights )
