Discover the splendors of Tuscany on this luxury tour featuring the very best in food and wine, curated by Italy’s renowned winemaking dynasty, Antinori Family Estates.
Your adventure begins in Florence, with a two-night stay at the Antinori family’s private apartment. You’ll be treated to a welcome dinner at the historic Cantinetta Antinori, a five-star restaurant housed in the magnificent Palazzo Antinori, a Renaissance-era gem. You’ll also enjoy a private guided tour of the iconic Uffizi Gallery, a gourmet lunch at Procacci Wine Bar, and dinner at the renowned Buca Lapi.
Your next destination is Tuscany’s Chianti Classico region, where you’ll tour the breathtaking winery, Antinori nel Chianti Classico, and have lunch at Rinuccio 1180. During your two-night stay at Villa Tignanello, you’ll explore the Tenuta Tignanello estate and savor a luncheon paired with their exceptional wines, followed by dinner at the charming Trattoria della Fonte. A private car will whisk you to the picturesque towns of Chianti for a tour of Antinori’s historic cellars under the Benedictine abbey Badia a Passignano, and dinner at the Michelin-starred Osteria di Passignano.
Then you’re off to the spectacular Tuscan coast for two nights at the elegant Guado el Tasso Estate Guest House. Your itinerary includes a private tour, tasting, and luncheon at the winery, followed by an exquisite dinner at Osteria del Tasso. Your week wraps up with lunch at Le Mortelle Estate and a farewell dinner at your guest house.
