You will stay in the Tuscan hills at a traditional agriturismo, an Italian farmhouse that has a swimming pool to cool off in, getting off the beaten track and visiting places that you cannot be reached by car.

Your day-by-day itinerary
Arrival agriturismo San Gimignano
Today you will drive through rolling hills to your agriturismo that has an outdoor swimming pool and a view over the countryside and the medieval tower village of San Gimignano in the distance. Check into your comfortable, rustic room and at the end of the day you can cool down in the pool, before enjoying a glass of homemade wine. For an authentic Italian dinner experience, you can sit at the long wooden table with other guests, sharing a bottle of homemade Chianti.
On the Vespa through Tuscany, Italy
After breakfast this morning you’ll drive to San Gimignano, where you’ll trade in your car for a new set of wheels – your own Vespa. You’ll mainly drive on country roads with little traffic and below San Gimignano is where the real Tuscan countryside begins. Pass vineyards, cypress-lined villas, the golden-brown hills of Val d’Orcia, as you follow quiet roads meandering through the countryside arriving at single-street villages like Montepulciano or Volterra, the highest hill town in Tuscany.
The next day you can either rent the vespa for another day, or you may prefer to unwind at the edge of the pool with a good book after a busy day yesterday. If you fancy something more adventurous, spend the day in Siena. It’s only an hour away and for centuries has competed with Florence for the title of the most beautiful Tuscan city in Italy. There is no real winner, but Siena has best preserved its medieval charm with high, slender palazzi, hidden gardens, Gothic towers and covered alleys.
Departure from Tuscany
After one last breakfast panini, you’ll be ready to continue your culinary adventure heading to rural Umbria to make pasta on a rural farm.
