Enjoy a morning of discovering the history and culture of Cortona, followed by an indulgent afternoon of gourmet specialties and wine.
A lesser-known gem far off the usual tourist track, Cortona overlooks the shimmering Lake Trasimeno on the border between Tuscany and Umbria. The town dates back thousands of years, from a part of the Etruscan League in the 7th century BCE, to a domain of the Medici family in the Renaissance. Today, it is one of the cultural and artistic gems of Tuscany, as well as a world-renowned wine capital.
Embark on a leisurely yet informative walking tour with your local guide, who will unravel the hidden stories around every cobblestone block of the fascinating town. After your morning walks, we’ll escape the crowds and enjoy a classic Cortonese lunch in the vineyard hills, featuring local ingredients, traditional specialties, and of course, the unique wines from the vineyard’s own grapes.
Get to know this hidden gem of Tuscany…the culture, the history, and the delicious tastes, all in one perfect day.

Fantastic service by Nicolo. Easy to communicate with, always on time and very knowledgeable. Had a great few days around Buonconvento and Montalcino. Definitely look these guys up when you're in the area
I can highly recommend Nicolo and team. Great service, always on time, and very knowledgable of the area.
The wine tour with Niccolo was one of the highlights of our Tuscan holiday. Very well planned by Niccolo, who picked us up and took us to Fattoria dei Barbi, one of the oldest vineyards in the region, 5 out of 5. Thanks Niccolo, we'll be back!
