No matter how much time you’ve spent in Italy, you’ve never experienced a trip like this: In the span of eight days, you’ll first travel back to another century in the hills of Tuscany, followed by three exhilarating days in Rome exploring the timeless craftsmanship of Bulgari jewelry.

Midway between Rome and Florence, high in the Tuscan hills, lies the medieval village of Castiglioncello del Trinoro. This restored 12th century hamlet, a protected UNESCO World Heritage site, is located in the Val d’Orcia region with easy access to the wine regions of Montalcino and Montepulciano. The perfectly preserved buildings will make you feel that you’ve stepped back in time to a more tranquil and unhurried age.

In the midst of this paradise is the Monteverdi Tuscany, a luxury boutique hotel surrounded by stunning countryside. Your accommodations for five nights will include every conceivable amenity. Designed by Ilaria Miani, the rooms evoke timeless romance and contemporary style: wood-beamed ceilings, original artworks, bespoke furniture from Italian craftsmen and fresh flowers from the hotel’s gardens.

The hotel boasts a spa, culinary academy, gardens, gym, library, art gallery with artists in residence and free Wi-Fi throughout. As you relax in the glittering turquoise infinity pool, you can survey the verdant Val d’Orcia landscape surrounded by lavender.

You’ll hone your cooking skills in a private lesson with executive chef Giancarla Bodoni and learn to whip up authentic Tuscan dishes, including pici pasta and boar ragù. Afterwards, you’ll enjoy the fruits of your newfound cookery skills in the academy’s indoor or outdoor dining area and be gifted with a Monteverdi apron and recipe book to take home. Your palate will be challenged and refreshed by a wine tasting led by a sommelier.

The tone for each day will be set with a freshly prepared breakfast in Oreade, Monteverdi’s restaurant, named after the mythological nymphs and goddesses who frolicked in the mountains and forests like those around Castiglioncello. In the evenings, explore the collection of rustic osteria and upscale dining rooms dotting the hamlet, such as Da Gagliano, Ristorante Santa Chiara and Ristorante Alessandro.

Rejuvenate your body and soul at the Monteverdi Spa, an oasis with breathtaking views stretching across the Val d’Orcia. There are soothing treatment rooms, underground hot and cold pools and a garden-view relaxation lounge. Choose among facials to soothe and illuminate, rose-scented moisturizing treatments, massages and revitalizing scrubs; spring for a signature treatment and you’ll find yourself submerged in a perfumed bath or de-knotted and kneaded for 75-minutes after a half-hour soak.

Now that you’ve connected to the essence of medieval Tuscany, it’s time to plunge into the cosmopolitan life of modern Rome and begin your immersion into the world of Bulgari craftsmanship.

After checking in to your luxury Five-star hotel, you may choose to explore the Eternal City’s most exquisite palazzos and monuments at your leisure on a private, guided tour. You’ll receive an inside view of Bulgari’s world of jewelry when you visit the exclusive High Jewelry Workshop, where you’ll see exceptional pieces not often available to the public such as the Mediterranean Queen Necklace, the Emerald Ellipse Necklace, the Baroque Spiral Necklace and the Ruby Metamorphosis Ring.

The magic continues with a special exhibition gallery and treasure trove of displays in Bulgari’s iconic Via Condotti 10 boutique. DOMVS, which means “home” in Latin, is a name chosen to convey the intimate and inviting nature of the rooms that host the heart and roots of Bulgari. The glamour and soul of the brand will be conveyed through unique pieces from the Heritage Collection, some of which belonged to Elizabeth Taylor, Sophia Loren, Anna Magnani, Ingrid Bergman, Anita Eckberg and Gina Lollobrigida.

During your visit to Bulgari, you’ll realize that the house means more than just jewelry. At your leisure, explore products such as watches, bags and accessories for both men and women, fragrances and gifts for special occasions—all bearing the unmistakable stamp of the Bulgari style dating back to 1884.

Your winning bid on this lot provides the opportunity to experience the best of the Tuscan countryside, paired with the timeless elegance of Bulgari jewelry in Rome: Don’t miss out!
