The Mona Lisa Chianti Wine Experience

Half day wine tasting experience in Chianti with lunch. This tour is a little different as it takes place at the former home of Mona Lisa, at Villa Vignamaggio. This is where Leonardo da Vinci painted the world famous painting, the Mona Lisa.

Your wine tasting tour will teach you all about Classico wine and the organic vineyards of Villa Vignamaggio. You will have lunch on the terrace and the view you see as you look over the rolling tuscan hills is the scenery you can see in the back of the Mona Lisa painting.

The Villa Vignamaggio is a truly organic Tuscan estate because, since 2014, it has been converted to run as an organic enterprise.

You can come and admire the historic vineyards, orchards and new crops as well as the estate’s farms. The aim is to continue the history, the activities and the traditions of the estate in accordance with a new vision that is modern, ecologically friendly, healthy and clean.

Under the auspices of this project we have strived to achieve excellent quality whilst still respecting the land and the local flora and fauna as well as the human race.

The result of all this is a cutting-edge farm which is in communion with the seasons and pays even greater attention and respect to the rhythms of nature and the changes of each season.

As you stroll around the estate, you will be able to admire the organic orchard with ancient and modern varieties of fruit trees. You will see 50 pomegranate trees, 180 plum trees, 50 fig trees, 30 apricot trees, 180 apple trees and pear trees. In addition to these, we grow our own raspberries, blackberries, blackcurrants and white currants.

In the distance, you may spot a few dozen Cinta Senese pigs which we have encouraged in a semi-wild breeding programme. We leave the animals free to roam an area of around 1 hectare as well as letting them feed in the fields and woods. However, we also augment their diet with organic barley and organic beans which have been grown on the estate.

Our cereals are organic too, made from Senatore Cappelli durum wheat and Verna wheat.

Being organic means protecting the land but also paying attention to the health and well-being of our workers and those who will consume the fruits of the land from the Villa Vignamaggio estate.

And this is one of the reasons why the perfect finishing touch to our organic farm project can be found in all the dishes that are served at our in-house Monna Lisa Restaurant, paying fitting tribute to the excellence of Tuscan cuisine.

The dishes are all distinguished, naturally, by the wide range of organic produce from our gardens. So, you can sample the most authentic flavours of fresh fruit, vegetables and meats which you can enjoy here or, some of which, you can take home with you!

It is a breath taking and quite surreal experience. Your trip will include 3 nights in Florence and a private car and driver to take you to Villa Vignamaggio and then back to Florence afterwards.

        • A wine tasting tour.
        • A 3 course lunch with wine

Honeymoon to India – the service far exceeded our expectations

“From the very moment we contacted the InspireMeTravel team to arrange our honeymoon to India (New Delhi) and Sri Lanka (The Cape Weligama) the service far exceeded our expectations. The professionalism of providing us with a proposal detailing the entire trip from the moment we left the UK, flights, hotels, excursions, internal transfers and the flight back home were amazing. As part of the service we were provided with a local mobile phone and a representative should we need to contact anyone, this was a true first class service. We had a complication due to weather conditions that our sea plane was not able to fly and again, without any interruption to our holiday the InspireMeTravel team took care of everything keeping in contact with us the entire time. We have used them for all our holidays since our honeymoon, they will not disappoint. Well done to Karen and Jill in particular.”

North Cyprus Wine Tasting – one of the best wines I’ve ever tasted!

"In my opinion,  one of the best wines I’ve ever tasted! Such a stunning hotel with gorgeous views of the vineyards that this hotel is set in and only 15 mins drive to North Cyprus’ harbour, which offers lovely restaurants surrounding it so you can experience more of the tasty North Cypriot cuisine. 

The rooms in the hotel are First Class with different themes for each and the only hotel In North Cyprus with its own wine. Definitely recommend."

Verona Opera – Such an amazing experience

"If you want to see an opera with the magical atmosphere and feel as if you are actually with the characters then go to the Opera Arena in Verona. Such an amazing experience.  Verona also has the Romeo and Juliet museum where you can actually stand in Juliets Courtyard and in her balcony.  Definitely a must."

I would highly recommend booking this tour with Inspire Me Travel

"I joined Inspire Me Travel group tour of the famous Mona Lisa’s family home.  The landscape features in the background of the famous Mona Lisa painting – how amazing is that!   First impressions from the group was “Wow”, the ambience, the scenery, the home was breathtakingly beautiful.  We were free to walk around the beautiful gardens and then joined a wine tour, which was very informative.  The group were then shown to our outside dining table on the terrace, where we could marvel at the view whilst sampling the wines which accompanied our lunch. There is a shop where you can buy wines and other gifts, what an opportunity to take a bottle of Mona Lisa wine home with you, so you can share this truly special experience with your friends!  I would highly recommend booking this tour with Inspire Me Travel.  It was so very well organised."

What a truly wonderful experience

"I joined Inspire Me Travel group tour of the Paris Jazz clubs in February this year.  What a truly wonderful experience.  Our first night was at Ducs des Lombard, for the truly discerning jazz enthusiast, it did not disappoint.  The following evening was at the famous Caveau de la Huchette in the Latin Quarter; grab a seat and listen to the band; watch some amazing dancers and join in.  It had a great atmosphere and was super friendly.  Inspire Me Travel also organised wonderful restaurants (to suit our budget) close to the jazz venues.   I would highly recommend booking with Inspire Me Travel they tick all the boxes!"
