Fall Delights for your Tuscany Luxury Vacation

There’s no such thing as a bad time to visit Tuscany–even winter has its uncrowded charms–but autumn is particularly delightful. The summer package tourists have returned home, and nature’s bounty is being harvested to make wines and olive oils renowned throughout the world. Additionally, there are celebrations and sagras highlighting chocolate, chestnuts, truffles and even squid! Mild temperatures and flame-kissed foliage make the Italian countryside more enchanting than ever. Here are a few of our favorite places to explore in the region, in autumn or any season.

Italian food

Feast on traditional Italian food

Housed in a home from 1600 and serving only 30 lucky diners, Restaurant Arnolfo is not to be missed for elevated Italian cuisine. With exceptional food, attentive service and impeccable wines, Arnolfo is perfect for the special occasion you’ll never forget.

wine

Sip on classic Chiantis

Tuscany means wine, and Antinori Chianti Classico is one of the best-known names for a reason. The architecturally stunning new winery is as marvelous as the wines, making the entire experience a feast for the senses. Book ahead for special tours and private experiences, and don’t miss the views from the stunning new rooftop restaurant.

 

Guinigi Tower

Take it to the top

Florence could fill a thousand days, and Pisa should not be missed. But the Tuscan tower you may fall hardest for is Guinigi, in lovely Lucca. Built in the 1300s, it boasts a unique tower-top garden with stately Holm oaks atop the Romanesque-Gothic structure.

Villa Oliveto

Stay in style

Set among olive groves with views to the Duomo, Villa Oliveto is a beautifully restored farmhouse with modern luxuries and classic charm. Only 15 minutes from Florence, this five-bedroom beauty has its own saltwater pool, a dream kitchen, and a relaxing hammam.
