Discover Tuscany from our luxury hotel
You could visit Tuscany a hundred times and still discover new pleasures.
Tuscany is a region rich in history, art, natural beauty and gastronomy, and every season presents its distinct rewards. There are the dazzling Duomos of Florence and Siena, masterpieces by the greatest Renaissance artists, enchanting medieval hill towns and the rolling beauty of Chianti’s countryside.
Food lovers will especially relish the autumn harvest, Tuscans celebrate the table with gusto presenting truffles and porcini in special local recipes. Imagine the winter months strolling through the Uffizi without the crowds, having Titian’s Venus to yourself. The summer is heaven for sensualists relaxing by the castello’s pool, overlooking vineyards, maybe catching the thunderous excitement of Siena’s Palio or tasting some chilled Vernaccia in the beautiful hill town of San Gimignano.
Castello del Nero sits with noble pride plum in the centre of the Chianti Classico wine producing area, with Florence just to the north and Siena to the south. It is the ideal location to explore Tuscany.
San Gimignano is renowned for its fresh Vernaccia white wine, and medieval charm, with numerous tall towers, signifying neighbourly competition in displays of wealth.
Volterra walled and windblown on its own hilltop, has a wealth of Etruscan history, and an old Medici fort with a prison, which marvellously invites visitors to a restaurant run by inmates.
