Italy with GG
Travel with Grace Giovannetti, certified sommelier and experience the many delicacies, history and beauty that surrounds the region of Tuscany. Touch down in the beautiful Renaissance city of Florence where we will meet and get to know all of our guests.
The next morning, we begin with a personalized day of shopping. From crossing the Arno river to walking through the historical piazzas you will be immersed in the essence of this city. As we depart the city and drive through the countryside of Tuscany, we arrive at our home for the next 6 nights.
The estate we will visit offers views of Siena where you can relax at the pool, get a massage or simply enjoy the grounds in your 14th century suite with all its modern comforts. Our private driver will take us on our journey through the rolling hills of Chianti Classico, a visit to the medieval city of Sienna, and a trip to the Tyhrrenian sea where we will learn, explore and indulge in some of the world’s most exclusive wines.
Exploring Tuscany means tasting some of the best wines in the world. Our daily trips will include private tours at wineries that offer their own unique charm. We will travel back in time visiting wine cellars, walking through vineyards and gardens sipping wine and eating other local Tuscan products such as olive oils, salumis and cheeses. Let’s not forget the truffle hunting while later enjoying the truffles from the area.
We couldn’t leave Chianti without a visit to the kitchen where we will immerse ourselves in the history and techniques of the “cucina rustica” and make a meal of our own.
