Our March 2020 trip is a 9 day fully escorted tour of Tuscany, the most popular region in Italy. Tuscany offers its numerous visitors the best of all things Italian, starting with fine art. The capital, Florence, is considered the cradle of the Renaissance, and now one of the richest cities of art and culture. Tuscany is famous for its world-class art collections, charming medieval hill towns, and sweeping hillsides full of vineyards. Tuscany is where you have to go if you want to stand in a room full of Botticelli paintings or gaze upon Michelangelo’s “David.” You can’t find the home of Chianti wine or the town that produced “Under the Tuscan Sun” anywhere else. The region’s hill towns will provide a beautiful backdrop for the perfect Tuscan holiday you’ve always dreamed of experiencing.

Highlights on the tour will include Florence, Pisa & Lucca, Siena, San Gimignano, Chianti Region, Montecatini and an optional day trip to Cinque Terre. For $2999, the trip includes: international round-trip airfare, airline fuel surcharges and taxes and fees, 7 Nights First Class Hotel in Montecatini, 10 Meals (7 Breakfasts, 3Dinners), sightseeing and admission fees, a professional tour manager, baggage handling and hotel transfers. There is also an Optional 3 day Rome extension for $599. As a bonus, if you register for the trip at the Information Night on September 16th, C.I. Destinations will include the day-long Cinque Terre excursion at no additional cost!

We have a great group already signed up to go on this trip of a lifetime, but still have room for more! If traveling to the Tuscan Region of Italy is on your bucket list, this is the trip for you!
