We stayed at Casa Bacco with two other couples last week and did several tours organized by Denyse and her staff. The house was great and the tour experiences were amazing. I would have to say that we experienced unparalleled customer service from Denyse and her staff. Everything was seamless from the check in process to all the tours. I would highly recommend Together in Tuscany and Umbria if you are looking to have a first class experience on your visit to Cortona.

Stayed in a villa, Casa Bacco in the hilltop town of Cortona with two other couples. Arranged through Together in Tuscany and Umbria. Denyse who runs the company was invaluable in providing us with recommendations for tours, restaurants, wine tastings and cooking classes. Very nice town but built on hill requiring frequent walks up and down steep hills. The local people were very friendly. If you are visiting I would highly recommend her services.

Cortona was amazing - loved the authentic experience of the area! Restaurants were great and make sure to visit SNOOPY for probably the best every gelato! Casa Ombretta was comfortable and had fantastic views. All the basics were available in the villa - would like to see more modern updates like better TV channel choices, TV that allows streaming etc. Be prepared for the hill walking back from the town square and restaurants but great way to walk off your meal :) Service from Together in Tuscany & Umbria was friendly and accommodating. I felt some of the tours were overpriced and expensive and would be good to see this team provide things like restaurant recommendations, booking services to restaurants etc but the team were always responsive to questions and enquiries - thank you Together in Tuscany & Umbria!

What a fabulous city to explore! And what a great central location for day trips! Casa Stella was a delightful and convenient house. The views from the city wall are amazing. The food is fabulous and the hills helped us work it off. Just meander and enjoy the people watching, the wine tastings, the churches, the history, the shopping, and the gellato.

We “won” our experience through a school fundraiser. We had no idea what to expect and hoped for the best.

Together in Tuscany took all the stress out of planning a vacation in a faraway place. They organized wine tasting, all our driving needs whether it was a rental car or a private transfer to and from Rome.

They were well organized and prepared for our arrival at check in. Handled transactions quickly and with easily. We were escorted up to Casa Nobile and we had a nice walk through on all the details of our villa.

Cortona is amazing. Definitely our favorite part of Italy. The dinner options and late night atmosphere were charming. Never a dull moment.

Cortona is centrally locates and Together in Tuscany arranged a rental car for us so we could explore Florence and Parma and Modena all nearby.

I highly recommend the winery day with lunch. Our meal was prepared and enjoyed by the family and they even dined with us. This was a highlight of our trip. We did have two get car sick from the windy roads so I recommend being prepared with meds if needed.

We opted to hear back to Rome a day early to explore some history and Together in Tuscany was even flexible enough for us that we were able to adjust some plans and they handled it beautifully and without fuss.

We have traveled extensively and I have never had a more pleasant experience in organizing a trip as I had with them. Please give them a call or email. You will not be disappointed.
