we specialize in Volterra and also offer private tours of other Tuscan cities

Volterra is the quintessential Tuscan hill town where history comes alive. It captivates seasoned travelers and children alike.

Volterra offers many possibilities for a wonderful private tour lasting just a few hours or a whole day.

I aim to introduce you to Volterra’s particular history and also give you the knowledge and tools to better interpret other Tuscan towns you may visit on your own during your stay.

Our city tours are private and we are happy to personalize the itineraries to focus on what interests you most.

finish up with a guided wine-tasting!

If you are interested in wine, you may want to consider a guided wine tasting after the tour of Volterra. The tastings are usually held by Francesco Gronchi (Annie’s husband and business partner) who is a certified sommelier and wine critic.

The tastings are held at a local wine bar and aim to engage you in a conversation about the history and traditions of the wines, and can teach you wine-tasting techniques.

  1. Our friends Rick and Nancy Richardson highly recommended your tour of Volterra. We will be in Siena from 4/25 through 4/30 and would enjoy such a tour. Could you please send me your price list.

    Thank you
