Connecting people with incredible experiences

34. Stay in a Tuscan villa in Italy

Ranked #34 in our countdown of ‘100 Ultimate Travel Experiences of a Lifetime’.


A common thread in the nominations this year is our desire to go beyond the hotels of the tourist enclaves and really get to the heart of a destination by sampling the routine of day-to-day life.

And the place most of us want to do this? Tuscany.

From its undulating vistas of verdant fields and pin-sharp fir trees to the rustic beauty of the villas that dot the landscape, everything speaks of hazy, hot days under the Tuscan sun and languid nights of alfresco dining and cold prosecco.


Who hasn’t had this dream? Burnt-ochre landscapes, villages balanced on hilltops and glasses of Chianti. Fantastico.”
– Andrew Bain
