Why you'll love this trip
  • Nestled in the rolling vineyards of Tuscany, spend two memorable nights at your gorgeous Feature Stay hotel complete with outdoor pool and dine on gourmet cuisine at the onsite restaurant.
  • Explore Rome’s iconic Colosseum by moonlight during an Exclusive Experience evening tour. Walk in the footsteps of gladiators without the jostling daytime crowds.
  • Treasure Tuscany’s love of cuisine and viticulture during a trip to the celebrated wine-growing region of San Gimignano. Visit a family-run winery and sample some world-class wine.
  • Take advantage of local knowledge with a small-group leader joining you on orientation walks in some of Italy’s best cities and recommending places to visit and eat.
  • Venice is the ideal place to wander with no set path. Lose yourself in the town's myriad alleyways, full of artisan shops and eateries, and dine on cicchetti – Venice’s version of tapas.
  • By travelling on this trip, you’ll directly support our Intrepid Foundation partner, Cooperativa Coraggio. Donations help them regenerate 22 hectares of unused public land to create local jobs and produce organic food in Italy.

Is this trip right for you?
  • Summer temperatures can be extreme in this region (over 40°C), which can be uncomfortable. It’s important to use sun protection, wear layers to combat the heat and drink plenty of water. Please carefully consider the time of the year you wish to travel and your suitability to that season.
  • During your trip you will visit numerous religious sites. You will need to bring clothes that cover the shoulders and knees. A light scarf is a good idea for covering shoulders and arms when it’s hot. Your leader will be able to advise when such clothing is necessary.

This trip was just amazing. Sarah our guide did an excellent job. She is knowledgeable and easily approachable, just beyond excellent. The food was amazing accompanied with so much beauty in historical buildings, art and the Tuscany landscape. I made friends on the trip as well. The individuals travelling in our group were high quality, fun and kind individuals. I just can't recommend intrepid enough. I hope to return to Europe when I can. Italy was a lifelong dream of mine and this tour exceeded all my expectations.

My expectations were far exceeded on the Premium Tuscany trip. The flow of the trip is great - you get the perfect mix of group and individual time and see way more than you could put together on your own in 8 days. Our tour leader, Florian, was wonderful! I met wonderful people that I will stay in touch with as well.

I cannot recommend this trip highly enough! The choice of locations was perfect, with a mixture of quiet and busy stops which made a perfect balance. The tour leader, Serena, was fantastic throughout and was well organised and knowledgeable. She went out of her way to give recommendations and advice throughout the trip. Intrepid were great too; easy to get hold of on live chat and the booking process was quick and easy. Highly recommend and will travel with them again!
