The Essence of Italy

Explore the hidden treasures of this incredible country, which are in aplenty in the north.

Experience beautiful walks, divine food, delicious wine, art, music, sacred sites & natural mineral spas in stunning locations.

  • Feeling the energy as you walk part of the Via Francigena – the pilgrimage made famous by St Francis of Assisi
  • Stunning accommodation in castles, villas, private homes – all chosen to have you experience the authentic and historical essence of Italy.
  • Discovering secret treasures in the local delicacies and personalities of the tiny towns we immerse ourselves in
  • A day in the Tuscan countryside searching for truffles with Massimo and his dog Mela, and then enjoying an absolutely delicious lunch in his family home, created fresh from your truffle finds.
