Overview

Highlights

  • Enjoy tasting of Tuscan reds
  • Explore vine-covered hills of Chianti
  • Explore Siena
  • Visit a private wine estate for a tasting

Short Description

Savour a feast prepared by our local friends – and enjoyed in their backyard. Take in the evening energy of Sienna and join in the laughter radiating from the piazza. Dine under the stars, at a winery, on a meal prepared by our private chef. We don’t just visit Tuscany – we bring its story to life.

Small groups are usually defined as between 10 and 24 travelers, often less. If you're the kind of person who enjoys more intimate experiences and personal service this is a good choice. All else being equal you will pay a premium for this style vs a larger group tour.

Just returned from 6 days in Tuscany, and can't say enough about this incredible trip. Beautiful vistas, delectable (and endless) food and wine, and 5 star accommodations. And Luca, who made every single moment seamless and enjoyable. Thanks B&R.

If you've not taken a trip with Butterfield & Robinson as your guides, you must! My husband and I love to travel and are pretty resourceful at finding great hotels and restaurants on our own. However, we just completed our third trip with B&R and are always so impressed and awed at the quality of accommodations, education, and experiences we would not of had on our own.We can't wait and are already planning for the next trip!

Just returned from our first B&R trip, a walking tour to Machu Picchu. Our guides, Stephanie and Peter were outstanding. Each day we were surprised with amazing experiences, 5 star accommodations and exceptional food. Our expectations were far surpassed. It is hard to put into words the moment we entered the Sun Gate and first looked down on Machu Picchu. I will only say you will never forget that moment. Thank you, thank you B&R!!!

Butterfield and Robinson has changed our lives. The combination of hiking, or biking, or cruise/biking at a slowed-down pace, with the help of their excellent guides, in foreign locations, makes for a relaxed, pleasurable travel experience. We have now travelled ten times with them, and we plan to do more. Their electric bikes (optional) extend our opportunity to travel with them into happy old age. Terry Patrick

This was our first trip with B and R, but it will not be our last. Our Amalfi Coast walking trip was so amazing from start to finish. Our guides (Courtney and Lisa) took such great care to make all of us so comfortable and feel safe and secure. The food, the five star hotels, the sights, sounds, and surprises along the way will leave lasting memories and bring smiles to our faces when we think of our Italian adventure.

Accomodations

Locanda Dell’amorosa, Sinalunga

When Carlo Citterio set out to restore the property that has been in his family for centuries, his first step was to convert the stables into a superb restaurant. Soon other buildings were refurbished: your bedroom may well have been a clock tower or the hunting lodge. Literally translated as “lodging of romance,” the Locanda exudes just that, and has long been a favourite B&R retreat.

Castel Monastero

Originally a medieval village, the fi ve-star Castel Monastero is today a luxurious and relaxing retreat nestled into the Tuscan countryside. The property features well-appointed rooms, three swimming pools, and an incredible wellness spa.

Hotel Le Fontanelle, Pianella

Carefully restored over the course of a decade, Hotel Le Fontanelle blends classic medieval Tuscan architecture with thoroughly modern amenities and exceptional service. The guestrooms are comfortable and spacious, and downtime options at the hotel include a full spa and tranquil indoor and outdoor pools, all of which afford scenic and splendid views of the Chianti hills.

Additional Information:

Activity Level: Enthusiast

We cover hilly terrain, but we’ve kept the average daily distance to a moderate 38 km (24 mi.). As much as possible, we avoid the steepest climbs, but please be aware that Tuscany is hilly.

Gear: The Bikes

You can't enjoy a great biking trip without a really great bike. On this trip you'll be riding a customized hybrid or a racing bike with drop bars. We also equip you with handlebar bag, helmet and water bottle.
