Welcome to fabled Amalfi, Rome and Tuscany: their cuisines, wines and glorious history. Art In Voyage invites you discover (or for some of you, re-acquaint yourself with) some of the highlights that make Italy so incredible. On the Amalfi coast, explore magical, centuries-old coastal towns and villages, overlooking the magical Mediterranean. Be transported back in time with visits to Ravello, Sorrento and stunning Positano, all part of a private boat day trip along the coastline. In Rome, we unearth 2,000+ years of history, religion and architecture. Join our private guide, for an insider’s perspective on one of the ancient world’s most advanced civilization. Dine with warm and garrulous locals, as they welcome you in their home for a splendid meal, then stroll and enjoy the enchanting allure of the Italian capital at night. In Tuscany, we pamper our guests at an authentic property while enjoying Renaissance culture and Chianti wines tours through famous, hilltop villages.

TOUR HIGHLIGHTS

Balanced and Diverse

Perfect for guests who don't have much time to vacation, our journey offers a well balanced and diverse set of activities, tours, excursions, food, wine and downtime. Do as much as we offer, or as little as you want.

Luxurious and authentic hospitality

While carefully selecting properties offering comfort and luxury, we also strive to ensure all offer authenticity and great hospitality without excess. On the last leg, we invite you to discover a unique and memorable experience in the Tuscan countryside, a true highlight of this journey.

Pompeii and Ancient sites

Our journey takes you back to different times. From Pompeii's incredibly well preserved way of life and architecture to Rome's ancient site, Florence's Renaissance buildings and Orvieto's medieval history, you are truly stepping back into incredible moments of European's history.

The food and wine of course

Discovering all of Italy would not be possible without incorporating its love (and art) of food & wine. On this journey, we offer a well balanced program, providing our guests plenty of free time to discover some of the best eateries on their own while also enjoying unique epicurean group experiences.

ITINERARY

All activities are optional in attendance

Day 1: Sorrento & Amalfi Coast

Welcome to the Amalfi Coast. You are picked up at the airport (or train station) and whisked away to your hotel in Sorrento where you are greeted by your hosts. This afternoon, we have planned a guided tour of Sorrento, ending with a Limoncello tasting. Tonight, we hold our welcome dinner..with a view!

This morning, we depart for Positano where we board our very own private boat. We are greeted with Prosecco and beverages as we sail away towards the coastline, and Amalfi. For lunch, we visit Ravello where we enjoy a light bite at Villa Cimbrone after a walk through their famous gardens. Tonight is at leisure

Day 3: Capri

After a short ferry ride to the island, we are greeted by our local guide who makes sure we stay away from the touristy spots, and enjoy the caves as it should be: in private. After seeing the famous cave, we take the chair lift to Anacapri where you have lunch and the afternoon at leisure. Tonight, dinner is at leisure. For our guests not interested in seeing Capri, we would be happy to arrange food & wine or culture & history focused tours.

Day 4: Pompeii & Rome

After checking out of our property, we head to Pompeii where our guide awaits. Be amazed by the amount of well preserved artifacts and buildings at the site, and step into the typical daily life of a Roman some 2,000 years ago. Our journey then takes us to Rome which is reached mid-afternoon. The rest of the day is at leisure. Tonight, we are graciously hosted by a local Roman for dinner.

Day 5: Rome

Our day starts with a private tour of Rome's highlights. Led by a local historian and major in architecture, you are transported back in time as you take on the Spanish Steps, the Pantheon, Piazza Navona, the Coliseum and the Roman Forum.

Tonight, dinner is at leisure, with our recommendations.

Day 6: Orvieto & Tuscany

This morning, we make our way to Tuscany. But first we stop in famed Orvieto, a little over one hour south of our final destination. There, we are met by our private local guide for a tour of the undergrounds and the Duomo. Lunch is then at leisure, before a mid-afternoon departure for our next home. Upon arriving at Il Borro, you are treated to a massage before dinner (own account).

Day 7: Florence

After a morning at leisure, we depart for Florence which we reach in less than one hour. There, our private guide awaits for a 3-hour walking tour of the Renaissance birthplace. Lunch is at leisure, and our day concludes with a stop by a local Chianti winery for some tasting on our way home.

Tonight, we hold our farewell dinner at Il Borro where we are treated to a Chef's Table experience with wine pairings.

Day 9: Departure, or extend your stay

With so much ground to cover in Tuscany and Italy, why not extend your stay? Discover and experience more of Tuscany (Siena, San Gimignano) by staying a while longer at Il Borro or have us suggest other properties. Or why not make your way to Lake Como or Venice (self drive, by train or assisted by our private drivers). Simply ask us, and we shall oblige!

OUR HOME BASES

Il Borro Toscana

The origins of the village of Il Borro are lost in the history of medieval Tuscany and the famous people who established the reputation of the region. Every alley, every stone speaks of a time that once was, of flavors and scents that recall the memory of a rare and more authentic Tuscany. Surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, in the shadow of the cypress trees of the ancient Via dei Sette Ponti, (an area rich in art and culture between the three main cities of Tuscany Florence, Arezzo and Siena), Il Borro is an open window on history, a fresco to a far away world. The Medici dynasty, the Savoia family and now the Ferragamo family have safeguarded and preserved this precious oasis, making this place, suspended between past and present, a sanctuary dedicated to well-being and the art of hospitality. You are welcome – one thousand years of history are waiting for you!

The rooms are an elegant portrait of the classic Tuscan style. Subjected to a meticulous restoration, they have retained their original features whilst enriching them with all the most modern comforts. Stay in historic villas or in one of the suites in the village and enjoy the unique culture of Il Borro.
