Tuscany may be home to countless Florentine museums housing some of the Renaissance’s most renowned names, but it also offers much more. The appeal of Tuscany is spread across the region, with its rolling green hills, earthy smell of vineyards and olive orchards that stretch to the horizon. Castle towers and walls surround towns and sit between homes as if they still belong. Find freshly-made pasta that will melt in your mouth; savour some nicely-spiced Chianti Classico.
Let Tuscany open its door to you in Greve, the gateway to the Chianti region. The town of Castellina in Chianti and San Gimignano boast their large towers that rise high above the Tuscan hills. Florence provides insight into another world, where art by the likes of Botticelli, Michelangelo, and Raphael can be found. This is where Brunelleschi’s Duomo towers above the city and can be seen from almost anywhere. And Tuscany is not just to be seen, but also tasted; the region is as much about food and wine as it is about rolling hills and Renaissance art.
Cinque Terre is a rugged portion of coast on the Italian Riviera, comprising five impossibly-charming villages. The towns are separated by a hiking trail with the sweet smell of giant basil plants on one side and the salty Mediterranean Sea on the other. The basil looks like trees and smells like sugar, while the water is crystal clear. You can also take a boat-taxi between towns to feel the sea breeze in your hair and the salt water on your lips. Or the fastest way between towns is the local train. The rolling hills and museums are less than two hours away but Cinque Terre is in a world all its own.
Whether you love art in its traditional sense, or enjoy experiencing art as a lifestyle, this tour is made for you.
Situated between the mountains and the sea, cramped area with little space or land, part of Eastern Liguria, known as Cinque Terre and Gulf of Poets, it is one of the most remote and secret niches of Italy. Indeed, a miraculous area that was inherited by a proud population who were intelligent enough to make the land fertile, and to cultivate grapes in the vines located on overhanging cliffs, where the territory would have discouraged anyone from starting agricultural activities.
Wine has been produced since the early Roman times despite the cutting winds from the sea and the spray of saltwater. There is no better way to enjoy this beautiful panorama then to take a swim in the blue waters of Paraggi, located inside a small natural bay set in beautiful green surroundings.
We then suggest that you go to Portofino to admire the luxury yachts moored in the famous harbour basin in preparation for the night parties.
