Tour Itinerary

  • SATURDAY – Arrival
    • It wouldn’t be much of a ladies’ escape if you had to travel to your accommodation alone, which is why we’ll personally come and pick you up from the station. When we arrive, we’ll give you some time to settle in and enjoy a glass of prosecco and the villa you’ll be staying in for the week. If you’re feeling peckish, we’ll take you into the nearby town of Cortona for your first tantalizing meal of the trip.
  • SUNDAY – Cortona
    • For the first day of your stay here, we’ll take you into Cortona – a beautiful town that’s full of history, culture, and tradition. You’ll also get to enjoy a fresh coffee as we take you on a guided walk through the town, offering info and facts on the area and landmarks as we go. For lunch, we’ll head to one of the local eateries – and don’t worry, we won’t rush you to finish your meal. When you’re done, we’ll give you plenty of time to do a little exploration of the town on your own. At 4, we’ll give you the choice to either come back with us to your accommodation, or stay behind in the town for a little while longer. Later, whether you stayed behind or went back to the villa, we’ll meet back up in Cortona for an evening meal. You’ll get a chance to try an Italian Aperitivo, followed by a traditional dinner at one of the local eateries.
  • MONDAY – Vespa – Pienza, Montepulciano
    • For a fresh start to the week, we’ll head to Pienza at 8:45 in the morning. Does the idea of exploring the streets on a moped sound good to you? If so, you’ll be glad to hear that we’ve got a Vespa tour planned for the day! We will visit Pienza, Montepulciano and Bagno Vignoni! If you’re tired after exploring the region for the past few hours, we’ll take you back to your accommodation to rest up before your evening meal. For dinner, we’ll take you back into Cortona – where you’ll get to enjoy a tasty, traditional meal (with wine included)

At 7pm we will take you into Cortona to enjoy an elegantly lavish dinner at an underground Jewelery showroom.
