With Tuscany Untouched my 19 year old daughter and I had an amazing holiday with Tuscany Untouched in June. From medieval festivals, to castles, wine farms, the seaside, climbing mountains, to the most beautiful little villages, cooking classes and of course the most amazing food and wine. We stayed at the wonderful La Capraia were we enjoyed the hospitality of Oscar and his family. We loved the fact that we got to see small villages not often frequented by tourists and enjoyed food from restaurants favoured by locals - the best pizza and then steak I think we've ever had. Thanks Matteo for making it such a special time for Jess and I - it is a holiday we will treasure for ever.
We also look forward to having our Tuscan Dinner when you are back in Sydney
Ah, Tuscany! A word that conjures up romantic images of the Italian countryside, historic towns, red wine and great food.
But wouldn’t it be great if you could explore this fascinating region as a local and not a tourist?

Why Tour with us
Tuscany’s varied and stunning landscapes are truly beyond compare. Tuscany Untouched take you to some of the most beautiful and undiscovered parts of the region from where you can take in the multiple shades of green reflecting on the hills of the wineries, breathtaking views of the medieval villages that cling defiantly to the side of rugged mountain landscapes, and enjoy a magical sunset over the Piazzale Michelangelo in Florence.
You will be overwhelmed by the pure beauty of the Renaissance art on offer in Anghiari, Arezzo, Poppi and countless other cities and historic towns. Our Tuscany Untouched tour will take you to an unexplored small town that protects hidden secrets about Italian culture and is home to one of the most famous pieces of art in Tuscany. You will discover and learn about a fascinating piece of Renaissance history that the majority of visitors to Tuscany miss out on.
It goes without saying that Italian cuisine is one of the best cuisines in the world, and the foods of Italy are as diverse and eclectic as the country itself. Italy’s varied regional cuisines offer a mouth-watering array of divine tastes and flavours. We’ll introduce you to some of Tuscany Untouched specialty dishes, and you’ll soon see for yourself why the Italian people regard Tuscan food as one of the best regional cuisines of Italy.
What makes Tuscany Untouched tours really stand out from other tour operators is that we provide you with a unique chance to connect with the Italian people. Our local guide will introduce you to the warm and welcoming people of Tuscany. Sharing a meal with a Tuscan family or learning how to make pasta or wine from a farmer are just some of the many adventures that await.

Thank you to Matteo and Laura they are such beautiful people and assisted me in arranging an authentic Tuscan hillside experience to propose to my partner around sunset. We rode horses from Reggello Farm and our guide was so thoughtful and really made us feel safe. We reached the half way point and were met with a lovely family and their home and a little cabana decorated accordingly with the moment that was going to happen. We were provided with a lovely aperitivo and the family pets made sure our prosciutto was eaten haha. Once I had proposed to Jess my partner we took off on the horses again and headed throughout the Tuscan hillside passing old buildings along the way. We arrived at dinner next and Matteo had ensured that not only did we eat at a place with amazing food but our table was completely private under beautiful trees and festoon lights. Jess and I could not have had a better day. Matteo and Laura were amazing along the way and it was really lovely sharing travel strories you can see why they want to guide people within Florence because their passion for travel lies at the heart of a place of authentic experiences meeting local people and really immersing themselves in the moment. Thanks again and I cannot recommend Tuscany Untouched enough

I was born in Firenze and I lived my childhood in a medieval village called Castelfranco di Sopra. I have lived in Tuscany all my life, and it has become part of my soul. It’s a place I love and respect, and it never ceases to take my breath away. Although I attended art school in Florence, since my early 20s I have worked for a number of well-known travel agencies and tour operators. While working there, I had the opportunity to plan and lead many tours for English, American and Australian visitors. I love leading tour groups and find great pleasure in introducing visitors to the hidden gems of a land that is so rich in history, culture, traditions, food, wine and the warm hospitality of the authentic Tuscan people…more
