The Tuscan Adventure tour is a must for those who want to spend a week actively exploring all that the amazing location of Tuscany has to offer. For a full 7 days, this tour can give you the chance to travel across the region, explore local landmarks and towns, and so much more.

From traversing the region and taking in the stunning sights, to the fine dining and wines made by local vineyards; you won’t just have a memorable trip, you’ll also learn more about the Tuscan lifestyle, too.

Visit some of the more historic towns in this part of Italy, take one of the walkways on a guided tour, or learn more about the local craftsmen and artisans here – there’s plenty to keep you occupied during your stay.

This means that after a full day’s worth of activity, you’ll be able to wind down and really take in the essence of Tuscany in one of our beautifully renovated traditional farmhouses.

We aim to offer you the chance to see what Tuscan life is really like and to experience it all for yourself;while offering an action-packed getaway for those who want a little more zest from their break (which has pleased many of our guests).
