Why You'll Love This Tour

Overview

Tuscany by the Sea

It’s a breathtaking and serene coast made for riding, picnicking, and swimming. We’ll do all that, plus follow cycling paths along nature reserves, into medieval towns whose ramparts invite leisurely walks, and out to an island torn from the Middle Ages. Along the way, gracious hosts share the bounty of their beloved farmland—and a bit of themselves—during olive oil samplings, wine tastings, and pastry-making. What’s more, we end each glorious day as guests at a classic agriturismo farmhouse and a stunning secluded villa. Join us on this VBT favorite!

Cultural Highlights

  • Stay at a charming agriturismo that produces their own wines, olive oils and more
  • Enjoy an Italian pastry lesson at our agriturismo
  • Cycle along a stunning route offering views of the countryside, elegant villas and gardens, and the sea
  • Take advantage of many opportunities for a refreshing swim
  • Ferry to Giglio Island and enjoy a day at leisure exploring (March and late Sepember and October departures visit Tarquinia instead)
  • Find a warm welcome at an olive oil mill, where you'll enjoy a tasting and a picnic lunch
  • Enjoy a tasting of wines produced right at our villa in Magliano
  • Discover Magliano, a fortified city whose intact walls date as far back as the 14th century
  • Admire fabulous views from the ramparts of an ancient castle in Capalbio
  • Sample genuine Italian gelato, a rich ice cream
