Francis Brennans Grand Tour

Tuscany

This week the tour moves from the Italian Lakes to Donnini a small village in Tuscany. En-route, the tour calls into Maranello (Modena) to visit the Ferrari Museum where they admire the collection of supercars for the super rich.

In Donnini there's hotel hysteria as some of the group fear their rooms are haunted!

They tour travels to the picture-perfect Tuscan villages of Pienza and Montepulciano, visit a vineyard and are invited to dinner at the home and studio of Irish artist Holly Melia who lives deep in the Tuscan countryside.
