Different to the traditional Tuscan itinerary, this trip will offer a unique chance to get to discover the little-known treasures of western and southern Tuscany and the Maremma area – “The Other Tuscany”. This area showcases Italian loveliness in a gentle way, without hoards of tourists.

We’ll explore the Etruscan coast, delving deep into its history and discovering its contemporary delights and great food/wine. Also Rome, Pompeii, Istanbul …
