THE TASTES OF TUSCANY TOUR
Spend 8 days and 7 nights exploring the traditional hilltowns, countryside and seaside of sun-kissed Tuscany, Italy on an exceptionally curated culinary adventure. We will explore the region through its farm-to-table cuisine and, of course, through some of the best wines in Tuscany. Tuscany epitomizes la dolce vita! We will learn to cook authentic Italian meals from local chefs, visit farms and nearby food producers, relax in lush, rolling vineyards, and sip and taste our way through iconic Pienza in Val D’Orcia, Montefioralle, Siena and Greve in Chianti among others. We will spend the day enjoying the untamed beauty of the Tuscan seaside. We will hunt truffles with adorable truffle dogs and visit with soft, huggable cashmere goats. Every day is a curated adventure showcasing the best of Tuscan cuisine and culture and every evening filled with soft sunsets over swathes of olive groves and grapevines. This tour is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
