Gourmet Tuscany

On this affordable Italian tour package, the town of Montecatini serves as your home base from which to venture out daily to explore the surrounding landscapes of breathtaking Tuscany. You’ll indulge in picturesque scenery, world-class local wines, traditional cuisine, and cultural discoveries via eight days of regional excursions.

From the rolling hills of Montalbano to Vinci and beyond, you’ll make daily sojourns through bountiful vineyards, olive groves, and chestnut trees. You’ll visit the birthplace of Leonardo da Vinci to experience the Renaissance master’s life and art.

Traveling through some of the most stunning and lush natural landscapes in Italy, you’ll embark each day to visit idyllic spots, including the gorgeous Chianti Valley and the Etruscan Coast. As you visit quaint wine shops, cafes, a traditional butcher shop, historic estates, and museums, you’ll feel immersed in the history and traditions of each daily destination.

In addition to sampling the local gourmet Tuscan fare, you’ll also be treated to an Italian cooking lesson, starting with the selection of fresh ingredients at a local market. You’ll prepare an authentic Italian dish inside a rustic Tuscan farmhouse where you and your travel companions will enjoy your culinary creations – complete with master-chef prizes. You’ll also sample artisan-crafted chocolates and learn the art of Italian dessert-making at your hotel.

You’ll revel in the beauty of becoming familiar with a single destination of Montecatini while making priceless daily discoveries of locales that are off the beaten path – perfect for the smart, creative, and budget-minded traveler.
