At Wine Link Italy we have developed tours of some of the most beautiful castles, gardens and villas in Umbria and Tuscany with experienced local guides or with the owners. A unique feature of our Vino and Ville experiences is that they operate for small groups only. You will not be treated as a tour party but as welcome house guests. The places we have included in the tours are not generally on the popular tourist track but the emphasis is on discreet places, gems of architectural design and historic interest.
Florence, Siena, Lucca, Perugia, Spello are some of the locations hosting great gardens and palazzos. What all of these palaces, villas and gardens have in common is their uniqueness, beauty and charm.
You will discover unexpected suburban summer villas, baroque gardens with labyrinths and topiary art, marble and clay-bricks constructions, medieval orchards with aromatic and medicinal plants, ancient flowers and fruit breeds, original frescoes and period furniture, antiquarian libraries.
This is an extraordinary experience of the wonders of the Italian countryside, a veritable travel through time. Our excursions are ideal for those who appreciate great architecture and also wish to explore fine local food and wine scene as well as enjoy an intimate and exclusive atmosphere.
