Abbeys and Art in the Apennines
This tour begins with a leisurely olive oil tasting at an organic farm in the charming town of Anghiari before arriving in the historic market town of Sansepolcro, birthplace of the Renaissance artist Piero della Francesca. Cross from Tuscany to Umbria in the Apennine mountains with beautiful views of both regions. Follow evocative pilgrim trails, once trodden by St Francis of Assisi, to remote churches and a dramatic fortress. Walk along pretty woodland paths and enjoy an exclusive guided tour of a 13th century Benedictine monastery.
