In The Steps Of The Etruscans

Ciao, bella! Join us as we explore one of the most idyllic and refreshing places on earth, the Tuscan countryside. We will stay in lovely agriturismos and excellent inns along the way, allowing us to fully take in the rural ambiance. We’ll explore off the beaten track, revealing thermal springs, the best of local fare, and the mountains-meet-seascapes of Elba – a microcosm of fertile Tuscany’s good life. Our route will take us from Fiumicino (Rome’s principal airport) to Lago di Bolsena for the first two nights. We’ll re-locate north to Bagno Vignoni, lying just off the slopes of the extinct volcano, Monte Amiata, for two nights. And we’ll arrive on Elba for three nights. Along the way, we’ll delight in some of Italy’s most renowned atmospheric places – the delightful cities of Siena and Orvieto, and lesser-known places, like the curative waters of Terme di Saturnia, and one of the Mediterranean’s best picnic spots.
