As our name implies, our company was the brainchild of Roberto. While we are fortunate to have a team ready to help you plan your trip, we stay true to Roberto's philosophy which is to help outsiders feel like insiders, to show Tuscany off-the-beaten-path, in a style rooted in history and human relations.

Endorsed by Rick Steves


We are proud to be endorsed by Rick Steves, because we strongly agree with his philosophy that travel enriches mind and spirit, and gives the world a much-needed human face. Meeting locals -and lingering rather than rushing- are important elements of the way we share our knowledge and love of Tuscany and Italy. Try one of our popular minivan single day excursions that begin from Siena or Florence, in the heart of Tuscany. Take a guided city tour in Siena, Florence, Rome, Venice and other cities on request. Lodge at Roberto's countryside home. 

Please note:  We respect our clients very much- but that very respect requires us to give advice when a client's requests is illogical, and our professionalism also means that we cannot "compete" with services that are totally different from those we believe in. Rome, Venice and the Cinque Terre are NOT daytrips from Tuscany in our opinion, despite the fact that other companies are happy to sell you such services, for example.

When not fully booked (usually July and August or November to April), we are happy to create customized tour packages to several other areas, particularly for returning clients who know us and wish to remain coddled by our attention but have already "done" Tuscany. Such week-long adventures have included the south, Emilia Romagna, the Lakes region, and more.
