Hill Towns of Italy

April 14–May 22, 2020

looking out over a valley with a town in the distanceEmbrace Tuscany and its romantic Old World way of life on a seven-night journey based in the hilltop town of Cortona, the romantic walled-city that set the scene for much of the film Under the Tuscan Sun. Venture out to sip Brunello di Montalcino at a family-owned winery and savor locally produced cheeses and prosciutto at Val d’Orcia. Survey the cypress-dotted Umbrian landscape from hilltop Orvieto. Delight in Orvieto’s captivating piazzas and feast your eyes on dazzling mosaics inside its massive cathedral.

Stroll ancient streets in Montepulciano and marvel at Siena’s remarkable Gothic architecture. Linger inside the Basilica of San Francesco in Assisi, in the lovely hometown of Italy’s patron saint. Along the way, enjoy lunch on a fourth-generation olive farm, and gain insight into Renaissance art, Tuscan cuisine, contemporary Italian life, and more from local experts. This small-group program includes first-class accommodations and an extensive meal plan, complemented by wine with dinner.
