Overview

Cortona Private Tours has been established to acquaint people with the beauties of Tuscany and Umbria both from an enological and historical point of view. Silvio, a member of the Associazione Italiana Sommelier (Italian Sommelier Association), will make you discover both Tuscan and Umbrian wineries that have excelled in the global panorama for their expertise in wine-making and that have been reviewed magazines as such Wine Spectator, WineAdvocat International Wine Cellar, Wine and Decanter. Silvio will conduct you through the most picturesque and charming art towns and villages and will be glad to drive you along scenic roads in order to enjoy the view of a unique landscape that is the envy of the world. You may also have the chance to go on special photographic tour and get aerial drone photographs as Silvio has a drone license issued by ENAC (the Italian Civil Aviation Authority) to fly drones and to take bird's-eye-view pictures and shoot breathtaking videos. All this is guaranteed by a fully licensed professional chauffeur car hire service which provides greater security and tranquility during your journey. Obviously, Cortona Private Tours provides a taxi and shuttle service to and from our main airports, train stations and other destinations. Free Wi-Fi is available on all our vehicles
