You’ll be greeted by your personal chef who will prepare a dinner made of the simplest, freshest ingredients to enjoy as you watch the Tuscan sunset.
You’ll be picked up by your driver and taken to Castello Vicchiomaggio. Your OROKO guide will bring you on a tour of the vineyards, historic cellars, the castle’s Italian Gardens and the ‘Panoramic Mona Lisa Terrace’. Enjoy an exclusive wine tasting of ‘the classics’: Chianti Classico, Chianti Classico Riserva and Chianti Classico Gran Selezione. After enjoying your tasting experience, a delicious lunch of local delicacies will be served in one of the castle’s Renaissance dining rooms.
OROKO will arrange for you to take to the sky on a hot air balloon ride. Soar above the hills, steep valleys, villages and castles of Tuscany. Watch from above as farmers tend to their olive trees and vineyards as you coast down the valley skirting a landscape that has remained unchanged for centuries.
Known as the cradle of the Renaissance you’ll visit Florence, a wonderfully preserved city with a wealth of art and architecture. The city is the birthplace of some of the world’s most famous artists; Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and Giotto.
