Viva Italia

Italy is without question one of the most breathtaking and culturally rich destinations on the planet, and it’s our passion for this enchanting place and its people that keeps us coming back to share it with others.

And while Venice, Florence and Rome are indisputably lovely, our tours are an experience that you won’t find in a brochure. No line ups, no tourist traps – just a carefully curated week of moments you’ll always remember.

Our home for the week is Tenuta Larnianone, on a gorgeous family-run vineyard and olive grove in the hills close to Siena with breathtaking views of the Chianti hills.


We’ll spend most evenings at our villa getting our hands dirty by learning how to cook the cuisine of the region using fresh local ingredients.


Throughout the week we’ll explore authentic Tuscan vineyards and wineries, sampling their incredible wines, and celebrating local producers. Salut!


We’ll be eating our way through the heart of Tuscany with delicious Italian lunches and dinners at different restaurants, wineries and hidden gems.


We’ll immerse ourselves in the local culture with day trips to incredible places off the beaten path, and local tours with the people who know the country best.


We’ll experience the fresher side of Tuscany with stops at local markets, cheese farms, and olive groves collecting what we need for fabulous home-made dinners.

oh the things

we'll see

Together, we’ll explore Tuscany’s charming towns and stunning countryside, meeting local winemakers, cheesemakers and olive farmers along the way.

We’ll feast on the best coffee, cheese and bread we’ve ever had before returning our rustic villa to create the cuisine of the region with our bare hands. We’ll spend sun soaked evenings sipping wine on stunning vineyards, olive groves and terraces watching the sun melt into the horizon before retiring to bed to do it all over again the next day.
