Viaggi Senza Fretta

Tuscany Slow Travel

your Time Therapy in Rural Tuscany and Umbria

Customized Small Group and Individual Travel

Travel is a powerful engine of change. It broadens perspectives and opens the mind to values and ways of living that are at once unfamiliar and illuminating. At the same time the sheer number of people travelling around the world inadvertently contributes to putting our human and natural ecosystems at risk.

What can we at VIAGGI SENZA FRETTA do to make a difference?

As a travel company in Tuscany, locally owned and operated, we are particularly aware of how important it is to maintain a community’s traditions, culture and environment. Our travel itineraries focus on different ways of reducing your carbon footprint. We’ve personally selected a number of locations and accommodation and offer cultural, enogastronomic & nature itineraries in their immediate vicinity - spend less time travelling and more time seeing!

Explore Tuscany and Umbria’s rural landscapes with Viaggi Senza Fretta – inch by inch, little by little we’ll take you there

Valdorcia (Siena) + Lucca, Tuscany

AUTUMN HARVEST: Grain and Grape »

in collaboration with Sapori e Saperi

13-27 September 2014

A tour for wine enthusiasts—whether you're a connoisseur or amateur, this is your chance to discover new Italian wines. From the famous regions of Montepulciano and Montalcino to the lesser known Colline Lucchesi and Gattinara, you'll get to meet and talk to excellent small winemakers as you taste their wines from the barrel and the bottle, and contribute to the next vintage by picking grapes.

In Italy wine accompanies food — grains and cheese are the basics. September is the time of the rice harvest in Piedmont and Lombardy, regions rich in food traditions including one of the world's noble blue cheeses, Gorgonzola, once known as 'the cheese of the devil'. Parmesan and pecorino, durum wheat, 8-row maize and farro are other stars of the tour, who you'll get to know along with their artisan producers.

Join a small group of only 8 to 10 wine-drinking foodies for an unparalleled journey from southern Tuscany to northeast Piedmont.
