oldest segmented arch, overlooking the Arno. Dinner for two from
$5,100 (available June through September), including limousine transfers ( for hotel guests), a glass of sparkling wine, and wine pairings.

"We surprised a VIP group with
a vintage Fiat treasure hunt. The
group was divided into small
teams, each given one of the
classic cars. They drove through
the Chianti hills for two hours
on a hunt that involved photographing a farmer, writing
a poem inspired by the hills,
painting a picture in a Tuscan
villa, and collecting specific ingredients for a meal. They ended
up in a local winery, where we'd
arranged lunch and a winetasting. The prize for the winners,
announced at lunch: spa treatments for the afternoon!"
