Summer in Tuscany – and the Palio horse race in Siena!

Upcoming Tours > Upcoming Tours 2025

This unique trip to Tuscany in the summer includes the centuries-old celebration on August 16: the Palio horse race! We will have exclusive balcony seats above the crowd and celebrate in Siena in the days leading up to the event. In addition to staying in the heart of Siena, we’ll also spend part of our time at a country estate near San Casciano – allowing us two different and very special “home bases.” More info on this blog post.

This small-group trip is limited to only 8 people and includes:

Accommodations, private ground transportation, most meals (with wine, naturally), wine tastings, private tours, cooking lessons, private balcony with buffet the day of the race and exclusive local experiences. And your own private, 24/7, Italian-speaking guide.


August 11–21, 2025
