This sample itinerary is intended to give you a flavour of what we can do
Day 1: International Flight

After being fast-tracked through security at the airport, begin your luxury family trip to Tuscany with a two-hour flight from the UK to Pisa.

Upon arrival, bundle your brood onto the shuttle bus from the airport to your serene villa in the hills of Fiesole, just outside of Florence. Enjoy a tasty meal in the restaurant and then it's off to bed for an early night ready for the first day of your adventure tomorrow.

Day 2: Florence Walking Tour

Today, on the first day of your luxury family trip to Tuscany, you will have the opportunity to walk in the footsteps of the famous Medici Family, and discover the highlights of this stunning city.

After a relaxing al fresco breakfast at your hotel, embark on a two-hour private guided tour around the quaint, winding streets of Florence. Explore the picture-perfect Piazza Della Signoria and Ponte Vecchio - Florence's oldest bridge. Admire the multi-coloured marble cathedral in Piazza del Duomo and climb the Giotto Bell Tower for breathtaking views of the Tuscan skyline.

During the tour, the little ones will be kept entertained with a game booklet packed full of challenges and riddles. To find out the answers, all they need to do is listen to the exciting facts and stories of the tour guide.

Day 3: Florence Food Tour

This morning, after a light breakfast, embark on a private two-hour tour accompanied by a passionate foodie guide to discover Florence's culinary delights.

Begin the tour in Florence's central market to soak up the buzzing ambiance and taste the local specialities. The children especially, will love the famous Trapizzino - a half-sandwich, half-pizza snack.

The second part of the tour takes place in a wine shop, where you will taste local cheese and cured meats, accompanied by a glass or two of wine (and fruit juice in case of the younger audience).

Finish the tour at one of the many gelato parlours, where the whole family can compete to find the best gelato flavour.

Day 4: Cycling in Old Lucca

Today, you will be privately transferred from your hotel to explore the charming little old town of Lucca. The drive will last around an hour, with plenty of beautiful Tuscan scenery to enjoy along the way.

When you arrive, hop on your bikes and, along with your private tour guide, discover the top spots of Lucca: Piazza Anfiteatro, Basilica of San Frediano and the Lucca Cathedral. Cycle along the old 16th century city walls, and - back on two feet - wander leisurely along the narrow streets of the town, the perfect laid-back activity on your luxury family trip to Tuscany.

With fun-filled booklets to entertain the little ones during the tour, you'll be able to admire the achingly beautiful architecture without any complaints of "I'm bored" - the one thing all parents dread to hear on any family holiday.

Day 5: Home Time

It's time to return home today. After enjoying a leisurely breakfast, you'll be met at your hotel and privately transferred to Pisa airport for your two-and-a-half-hour flight back to the UK.

Armed with your Sharky & George fun packs, the children will be entertained for hours giving you parents the chance to enjoy a glass of wine and toast to the success of your luxury family trip to Tuscany.
