Italy. Home of great wine and pasta, incredible culture and breathtaking architecture. No matter what kind of holiday you’re after, Italy has something for everyone. From the monuments of Rome to the beaches of the Amalfi Coast, there’s a reason it’s one of Europe’s most popular travel destinations.
But, with so much on offer, how do you go about planning your perfect itinerary? Nemo is a new breed of bespoke travel agency that combines years of expertise with innovative technology. Their unique itinerary builder allows you to design your dream trip, at a price that suits you, with no traditional ‘packages’.
We’ve teamed up with Nemo to offer one winner the chance to win an idyllic three-night Tuscan adventure for two. Here’s what you’ll get up to:
Fly from the UK to Florence or Pisa and pick up your hire care. Drive to the beautiful Hotel Lungarno on the banks of the River Arno in Florence and spend your first afternoon and evening at leisure, relaxing at the hotel overlooking the historic river or discovering the city. If you’re in the mood for exploration, Nemo can recommend a host of great things to do, places to eat and a guided tour.
After a leisurely breakfast you’ll drive into the heart of Tuscany to the Monteverdi hotel – a stunning Tuscan retreat set in the iconic rolling hills of the region. Nestled within a medieval hamlet, the hotel has been carefully designed to be in keeping with its surroundings and no two rooms are the same. Spend your time soaking up the atmosphere, taking a stroll in the local countryside or ask the excellent concierge for dining recommendations.
Today, you will enjoy a signature ‘Taste of Tuscany’ tour with a private guide from Tuscany Private Tour. Allow these local experts to escort you on a trip that takes in the best of Tuscany, visiting a cheese farm, olive oil producers and, of course, an organic winery. A traditional Tuscan lunch is also included and, by the end of the day, you’ll be in no doubt as to why this region has such an exceptional culinary reputation.
Drive back to Florence/Pisa and fly home to the UK. Should you wish, there is also an option to extend your stay for a few days and Nemo Travel can help make arrangements for this.
If this quintessential taste of Tuscany sounds like your cup of tea then simply fill out the form below by 20 February to enter. Good luck!
