Description

Experience Christmas in Tuscany!

Tuscany itself is truly a dream. Its majestic cities, towns and natural landscape beckon people from around the world throughout history and today. The art, architecture and history make this region of Italy one of the most fascinating places in the world.
With this tour we want to show you Tuscany in all her glory, with the added magic of Christmas.

Picture yourself strolling the streets of Florence, the Renaissance Capital, even more radiant than she usually is when all dressed up in twinkling lights and decorations. Rest a while in this ambiance at a patio bar, sipping creamy hot chocolate and listening to street musicians serenade you in this romantic city.
Transfer yourself now into the Tuscan countryside, dusted with a “veil” of frost, winding along scenic roads towards a medieval hilltop town where you will roam through an artisanal Christmas market that enlivens the piazza-life in the main square and streets. Leisurely browse beautiful handmade crafts for gifts (and you too!) then hear the old church bells ringing to remind you that it’s time for a cup of vin brule (hot, spiced wine) before losing yourself in the next quaint street which transports you back in time to medieval life.

Forget about that winter chill by soaking in a natural hot spring at a thermal spa as they did in the Roman times.
Food is a serious undertaking in Tuscany, especially at Christmastime. Learn how to cook a real, typical Italian Christmas dinner and experience the deep-rooted significance of ‘famiglia’ in Italy at this special time of year.

Christmas in Tuscany is delightfully festive and atmospheric. Your holiday season here will be one you treasure forever.

I had a wonderful time touring the Tuscany area with Alessio, he was very accommodating to a group full of ladies, always made sure we were having the best time and were able to visit the best places from the best places to buy a leather bag to the BEST gelato. He showed us the true beauty of Italy and helped each one of of us have a life changing experience. He truly enjoys seeing people in awe of Italy and will do anything to help you have a the most spectacular experience. I can’t wait to come back in the future!

My first trip to Italy was beyond my expectations. Alessio is knowledgeable, accommodating, and his love for his country is apparent in how he guides guests through each exquisite destination.  Alessio thoughtfully coordinates and plans out each day and is respectful of the guests requests for adjustments to the agenda or rest time to truly take in the beauty of Italy.  There isn’t a day that goes by where I don’t long to return to Italy and breathe in that Tuscan air, sip on the rich olive oils and bright wines, and watch the sun rise and fall through the hills.  I highly recom... continue

Debbie and I spent the most wonderful week in Italy.We spent the week exploring and enjoying Florence and other parts of Tuscany, accompanied by the most wonderful, Alessio Mazza. So many wonderful restaurants, beautiful countryside towns, delicious coffee and treats, lovely walking on ancient streets, forts and castles, seaside towns with beautiful blue water, hot springs, and olive groves.

Bravissimo!!!  That’s what I would say about Alessio and his passion for Italy.  He was our tour guide this past summer and made the whole Italian experience unforgettable.  (I can’t wait to come back.)  His relationships with the locals and knowledge of those hidden gems made for a unique trip that a large tour company could never provide.  Any hiccups that arose (and they always do) he was on it and went above and beyond what was expected.  I look forward to coming back to Italy and experiencing more of the truly beautiful country thanks to Alessio.  Ciao!
