We had such a great crew to travel with and our Mother duck Flavio... He did a fabulous job. The country side, food, wine, history and architecture were amazing. Hard to choose what I enjoyed the most really.

The Italian Indulgence Tour was my first trip abroad and I loved every minute of it. I was stunned by the beauty of the Italian landscape, and learned so much from our tour guide Flavio regarding the history, architecture and culture of Italy. I traveled with my 3 college friends. We were the only Americans among 18, but thanks to Flavio and events such as the cooking class, we quickly bonded with our fellow travelers from Australia and New Zealand. So much so that there were many tears and hugs when we parted on the last day. Flavio worked 24/7 to assure us a safe, happy and wonderful experience. I am especially grateful that he watched over those of us with special dietary requirements. And Michele was such a skilled and safe driver that we were always able to relax, enjoy the scenery, chat, or sneak a little nap while on the bus. It was magical how he always appeared with the bus right at the moment we needed him. The comradery between Flavio and Michele was genuine, and they often had us laughing hysterically. Thanks, Back-Roads Tours, Flavio, and Michelle for an Italian experience I will always treasure.read less

Our guide, Flavio was amazing. He took us to some incredible places on our Tuscan Treats tour. The off the beaten path touring is the only way to see the real country of Italy.

A big thanks, and lots of love to our guide Margot for such an enjoyable time in an easygoing, and safe atmosphere, (important for this solo traveler). You really held the group together and looked after your little ducks.The accommodation was superb, absolutely loved all the hotels and the food was top notch also. I could only wish the tour was a little longer, 10-12 days would allow a greater immersion in such a lovely place, and longer time in those fab hotels!read less

Itinerary

Florence - Lucca

Your introduction to Italy begins with an in-depth guided walking tour of Florence. Then, it’s off to leafy Lucca, where cobbled streets and red-roofed buildings await. When we get there, we’ll learn about its fascinating history and fine architecture as we go beyond the city walls. Tonight, we’ll come together for the first of our delicious dinners at a local osteria.

Lucca - Cinque Terre - Lucca

Rocky coastline. Romantic candy-coloured villages. It’s time to explore the Italian Riviera’s sublime shoreline. Our route brings us to Cinque Terre, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a tour highlight. After time spent discovering this beautiful area, we’ll return to Lucca.

Lucca - Pisa - Volterra

Infamous and impossible to miss, the Leaning Tower of Pisa is a staggering sight and our first port of call today. Afterwards, we’ll travel on to Volterra, where you’ll have the chance to explore the town at your own leisure. Perched on a plateau, this magnificent and mysterious medieval walled town is our home for the night. There’s plenty of time for you to discover its unique character this evening.

Volterra - San Gimignano - Siena - Pienza

Today we’ll make tracks to San Gimignano, home to a magnificent piazza, meandering stepped streets and some beautifully preserved architecture. Here, we’ll visit Gelateria Dondoli to sample the creations of a master gelato maker, before carrying on to Fattoria San Donato for an indulgent wine tasting complete with bruschetta and local meats. After taking in the town’s head-turning historic centre, we’ll continue to Pienza with a stop at Siena along the way. Tonight, the evening is all yours.

Pienza - Chianti

Pienza’s timeless charm and enchanting rural backdrop make it a serene spot to spend this morning on foot with your Tour Leader. After, we’ll sample some handcrafted Pecorino cheese and world-class wine. Driving onwards through the Chianti countryside, another gem awaits: a Tuscan country house that we’ll call home for the next two nights.

Chianti

Rise and shine! Today you’re cordially invited to the kitchen, where we’ll roll up our sleeves and put on our aprons. The villa’s chef will treat us to an exclusive lesson in making Tuscan delicacies before we sit down to savour the fruits of our labours for lunch.

Chianti - Florence

Sadly, we have to say goodbye to our villa this morning but there’s one more treat in store. On our way back to romantic Florence, we’ll stop off at an oil mill for a guided tour, olive oil tasting and light lunch. All in all, it’s a fitting end to a tour celebrating the natural beauty and culinary traditions of Tuscany.
