Welcome to IL DIVINO Tuscany Tours
As residents of Tuscany for 8 amazing years (now living in the USA), every year we take two small-groups to our home area of Tuscany, once in July and once in October, for a week each of magical experiences you will never find on a commercial tour.
Please read below to learn about these two incredible tours.
Every fall, generally the 3rd week of October, we take a small group to Tuscany to enjoy the wonders of the olive harvest and pressing into incredible Italian extra virgin olive oil. During our week together we will enjoy hands-on harvesting of olives, visit olive mills (Frantoio in Italian) pressing the olives, and enjoy many classic Tuscan Fall Festivals. Of course we will also manage to include a few lovely fall hikes through the chestnut forests and/or participating in yoga classes, and visits to such famous places as Assisi, Siena, and Cortona.
The cost for this wonderful 7-day tour is $2000/person and includes basically everything except airfare to Florence where our small group (about 10 people) will first meet and depart. Please click here, Tuscany Olive Harvest Tour, or the section title above for much more information and our daily itinerary. Hope you will come along. You will love it!!
Why Join Us?
We are not “tour operators”. We are just a retired couple who lived in this amazing area for eight years and know the magic of this small area of Tuscany and want to share it with you. As a small group, we want you to experience this week together as a small group of friends rather than you getting lost in a large commercial tour.
The vast majority of the towns and events we will enjoy would never be included on a large commercial tour. We want you to experience a part of the “real” Italy few know about.
Beginning and ending in the magnificent Tuscan capital of Florence, you will be responsible for all your transportation (including airfare) prior to our meeting in Florence and following our ending in Florence. We can guide you on the best ways to get to/from Florence if you need any assistance.
From the time we meet in Florence and we say goodbye also in Florence, we will provide all ground transportation (bus and train), all nightly accommodations, tickets to all music festival events, breakfast everyday and one daily group meal (either lunch of dinner).
Our goal is to make this the most magical week you could ever imagine in our little corner of Italian paradise.
