The tour begins with a relaxing and comfortable drive out of Rome and into the scenic rural region of Southern Tuscany as we make our way to Chiusi.
We will pass by medieval hilltop villages, farmlands with faded ochre stone villas, vineyards, and pastoral hills crowned with distinctive cypress trees...the perfect Tuscan scenery to capture on your camera, so make sure you have yours handy!
Chiusi ranks among the most ancient Italian towns with roots in antiquity as a very powerful city state of the Etruscan Federation, reaching the height of its greatness in the 7th and 6th centuries BC.
Today, its unwavering splendor lies in serenity of its landscape, the poetic beauty of its terraced countryside of Val di Chiana (Valley of Chiana), and the unassuming lure of its ancient past.
Our stroll through Chiusi will lead us to its main square and the town’s 6th century Duomo of San Secondiano, built over an existing basilica and above ancient Etruscan and Roman remains, such as a 1st century BC Roman pool beneath the tower, and a warren of underground Etruscan passages from 6th to 5th centuries BC.
The interior of the duomo is quite unique in its ornamentation. To save money on precious materials, early artists have mastered the techniques of faux art, therefore, the casual eye can easily be fooled when viewing the intricate marble panels and mosaic apse.
The Etruscan Museum of Chiusi merits a visit for its priceless collection of some of the most important Etruscan artifacts in Italy.
A visit to Chiusi is not complete without a relaxed lunch at a local trattoria for a true Tuscan culinary experience. A light lunch is recommended before going to the thermal spa.
From here we drive to the nearby city of health and wellness, Chianciano Terme.
Known since the ancient times of the Etruscans for the healing properties of its thermal waters, Chianciano Terme now represents a number of excellent spa resorts in line with increasing demands for personal wellness.
Terme Sensoriali offers the ultimate in relaxation and well-being. You will spend 3 hours indulging in traditional thermal treatments including baths, mud and mineral water treatments achieved through the principle of the Oriental philosophy of the five elements of the universe: ether, air, fire, water and earth.
Whether you want to relax, energize, purify or re-balance, you will find an itinerary created by expert naturopaths that is most suitable for you.
From here we will make our way through the Tuscan countryside again as you sit back, relax, and enjoy the comfortable ride back to the Eternal City of Rome where your professional driver will drop you off at the hotel.
