Inspiring Expeditions by Geoffrey Kent®: Italy and the Palio

The centrepiece of this journey is a ringside view of the Palio di Siena, in which riders traverse three hair-raising laps over the sand-covered cobblestones of Siena’s town square. 

You’ll also explore Verona, the riverside setting for Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, including an exclusive viewing of 27 Via Cappello – reputed home of the Capulets.

Head to Pompeii for an exclusive archaeologist-hosted visit, including a birds-eye view of the site and volcano by private helicopter.

Drive to Gragnano for a pasta cooking demonstration and lunch prepared by a Michelin-starred chef.

Bookending this unforgettable experience are finely curated forays into the best of Italy’s history, gastronomy, and wine, including after-hours museum visits, exclusive restaurant openings, a private operatic performance, and an excursion to the famous Blue Grotto by chartered luxury yacht.

Our properties include Villa Cordevigo, which features its own Michelin-starred restaurant, and Villa Cetinale, dubbed “the most beautiful villa in Tuscany” — both reserved.
