Live Tuscan is based in beautiful Cortona, famous throughout Italy and the location of the book and film Under the Tuscan Sun.
This incredible hill town was created by the Etruscans as one of their original 12 settlements almost 700 years ago.
It is steeped in history and charm, and in addition to it being the home of some of the warmest people in Tuscany, Cortona has the wonderful benefit of being perfectly perched over the most picture-perfect valley anywhere in Italy.
To call it home as we do is a fantastic feeling…and we now invite you to feel at home in this magical town.
We travel with our own luxury transportation to the destinations that may include, but are not limited to, Montepulciano, Pienza, Siena, Assisi, Perugia, Montalcino, Florence, Arezzo, Deruta, Orvieto, the Chianti area and much more.
It is our extreme pleasure to create new and exciting itineraries that change each season, and very often weekly. Due to the ever-evolving nature of Live Tuscan itineraries, no refunds will be given for itinerary changes or substitutions due to circumstances outside of Live Tuscan’s control.
The Farm House

The farmhouse lies at the foot of Cortona in a little village in the Tuscan countryside. It is a XVII century farmhouse that has been beautifully renovated, with modern conveniences. The farmhouse offers an insight into the past country life, with gorgeous landscaping and peaceful, expansive views of Cortona and the surrounding valley.
The house is furnished according to the traditional Tuscan country style, with terracotta-tiled floors, exposed wooden beams and wrought iron beds. The modern bathrooms and attention to every detail are part of its unique charm. The beautiful swimming pool and gardens are another lovely addition to this altogether wonderful, memorable property.
