An exclusive look at the Palio di Siena is just one of the unique offerings Italian-based travel specialist Luxo Italia affords travelers in Tuscany this summer and beyond. The private window faces the Piazza del Campo, the location of the bi-annual horse race and folk festival in Siena.
Every year on July 2 and August 16, the beautiful medieval city comes alive as 10 of the 17 contradas (neighborhoods) compete for victory. In addition to the private viewing and exclusive dining opportunities in the area, Luxo Italia includes a visit to the family estate of renowned opera singer Andrea Bocelli for a wine tasting and one-on-one discussion with renowned musician Sting’s wine connoisseur and sommelier.
To complete the insider experience, a secluded dinner in one of the ancient towers of the medieval town of San Gimignano, an UNESCO world heritage site, is also included. Also available are helicopter tours over wine country, cooking classes at local farms or in top restaurants and private tours of Siena and Florence.
Travelers can choose to enjoy all these authentic experiences while staying at a luxury villa or boutique hotel in the countryside. VIP Airport Assistance, private transfers by luxury car, and 24/7 personal assistance by phone is included with all Luxo Italia tours. The three night package starts at $7,500 USD per person based on double occupancy.
