TASTE OF ITALY

Think of Italy: its history and culture. 
Dream of Italy: the rolling landscapes of the Renaissance artists.
Imagine Italy: the food and the wine. 
Combine it all in this tour that takes you off the beaten track to experience just a taste of 
all that is so essentially Italian in part of Tuscany and Umbria. Departing Rome 
and heading north crossing the Tiber valley, we reach CORTONA. This town has 
changed little since the Middle Ages. More recently depicted  in the Oscar 
winning film “La Vita è Bella” and described by American novelist Frances Mayes in 
“Under the Tuscan Sun”,  Cortona is enjoyng a renewed popularity. Here, we stroll through 
the historic centre, discovering it’s hidden corners and absorbing  the atmosphere of this picturesque town. 
After a drive along the shores of LAKE TRASIMENO , lunch will be served
in a typical countryside restaurant. In the afternoon,
driving through the gentle hills of the CHIANTI REGION, 
we reach the hilltop town of MONTEPULCIANO.

The deep ruby red wine, “Vino Nobile” of this town is famous the world over. Here
then, we visit one of its oldest wine cellars, carved out of the tufo rock, to discover
some of the secrets of the winemakers and of course to taste the final result.
