Old Town Tuscany Experience
Apartment in Tuscany
Spend a settimana – 7 days in an award winning Tuscan hill town as ancient as the Roman Empire, flagged by the Italian Touring Club and featured in blockbuster movie "Under the Tuscan Sun ". The Old Town Experience, as the names suggests is an experience in one of the oldest civilizations in the world. It is best suited for travelers who seek authenticity and a real cultural exchange vs a luxury pampering. This is an off-the-beaten path immersion into local lore and historic art and monuments.
