Important notes

  • If you are planning to arrive earlier than the date the tour starts, it's your responsibility to meet the rest of the group at the hotel in Lucca.
  • Even if there is no luggage limit, it is always convenient to travel light. There will be opportunities to do your laundry in laundromats and at the Cortona lodging for a fee.
  • Make sure that your passport is valid for 6 months after your return date.
  • Extra tips to staff and restaurants are welcome but not required.
  • Health Considerations: The tour includes walks at historic centers that, most of the time, are paved with cobblestone. There could also be some uphill and downhill walks and stairs in narrow alleys. During the guided tours, some standing is required. Some roads are narrow and windy and there are short trips by ferry.
  • Boutique Hotel Consideration: WiFi is not always reliable in the countryside. All rooms have a private bathroom with shower and/or tub. Rooms could have different size and layout and some may not have a view. Rooms may include some stairs.
