Trip Duration: 12 days
Experience the timeless beauty and artistic heritage of central Italy on this 13-day tour through two of the country’s most storied regions: Tuscany and Umbria. Your journey begins in Florence with visits to the Gallerie dell’Accademia, the Uffizi, the Pitti Palace, and the 111-acre Boboli Gardens. Tour Siena, a Tuscan gem, then spend three nights in classic Etruscan Cortona, home to Frances Mayes’ Casa Bramasole. Travel through the gorgeous Val d’Orcia region—a UNESCO site—and visit a local winery in Renaissance Pienza. Leaving Tuscany for Umbria, you’ll stop in historic Assisi and stay for three nights in medieval Todi. A full-day excursion to Orvieto includes a cooking lesson before your trip concludes in Rome.
