You’ll start your trip by flying into Florence, where you’ll be met by your private transfer driver for the one-hour trip to your hotel. It’s a fabulous country hotel, in the Chianti area just north and east of Siena. We developed this package so that honeymooners can enjoy a great location in the Tuscany countryside and still have all the comforts they need close at hand. You can bask in glorious views, the very best of Tuscany scenery, while walking around or sitting by the pool. There’s also an indoor pool. You don’t need to go into town, because your hotel offers great dining. During your 4 days at this idyllic location, you’ll get two days of private Tuscany tours. That means just the two of you and your guide/driver, so you control the pace and the emphasis. If you want to visit wineries, that’s your choice. We recommend that you visit two very different parts of central Tuscany. One tour can include the Val d’Orcia, to the south of Siena, where you’ll find Pienza, Montalcino and Montepulciano. The other day of touring can focus on the Chianti area, north of Siena, including the towns of Radda and Castellina.
Then your transfer driver will pick you up for the drive into Florence, where you will spend your final two nights in Tuscany at a 5-star hotel in the very center of the city, convenient to the best shopping and museums Florence has to offer. You’ll have a private guide for a 4-hour walking tour in Florence. Your tour can include your choice of museums, including the Pitti Palace, Uffizi Gallery or the Accademia. Or you can skip the museums and ask your guide to take you on a tour to the artisan shops.
