Our new land excursions travel to private homes, farms, villas and more to experience authentic culture as it unfolds. Small groups mix and mingle with welcoming locals for a deeper understanding and appreciation of the destinations we visit.
Discover exquisite architecture, timeless elegance and a rich history in the ancient walled town of Lucca and the nearby hillside villa of one of its most illustrious families. Behind fortified walls, explore its narrow streets, cobbled lanes and handsome plazas, including Piazza Bernardini, before driving to the hillside estate built by Count Cosimo Bernardini in the 1700s. One of the count’s descendants will escort you around the villa’s expansive gardens where you’ll enjoy a toast while hearing stories of the family whose prominent role in Lucca dates back to the 14th century.
