Dreaming of Tuscany but not sure where to go, what to see, or how to organise yourself, your budget, and your time?  Been to Tuscany before but now want to delve a bit deeper into this wonderful country?


iCastagni is delighted to invite you to

The Real Tuscany 

sample itinerary



Settle into your home for the week; a medieval Tuscan village with real Italian life and a real Italian community as its beating heart.  



After wine, it has to be food. How do Italians eat carbs and remain so fit, slim, and healthy? We will explore the beauty of eating locally-produced foods which have accumulated zero air-miles. In the evening we will visit a tiny village where nothing really happens, until a restaurant opens its doors... 


Pepperoni Pizza

Pasta, Pienza, and Pizza.  The first topic around a Italian family breakfast table?  What shall we eat tonight? We will start the day with pasta; visit the Renaissance jewel of nearby Pienza; and end biting into fresh-from-the-woodburning-oven, crispy, mouth-watering pizza made for us by an Italian chef in his own home.



Let's dip into one of the area's greatest products; wine. We will be keeping local and sticking with the wines from the villages and the towns within view. We will end our wine day with a magical aperitivo followed by  Tuscan home-cooking in a village restaurant.



Yes, Italians sightsee and shop, but they know how to do it in a way which keeps them cool, comfortable,and crowd-free.  We will share their secrets with you in a bustling city.


Dinner Party

We will treat ourselves today and roll all the best elements of the week into our last day.  A true Tuscan combination of wine, food, stunning scenery, laughter and a traditional Italian Friday evening



One last coffee and pastry at the village cafe to say goodbye to your new local friends, then a leisurely departure and a chance to wave goodbye - until next year.
