Tuscany is one of the great destinations of Italy and, indeed, of the entire world. The beautiful scenery comes from the large tracts of agricultural land placed on rolling hills, dotted with cypress tress and crossed with the famous strada bianchi or white-colored dirt roads.
It is hard to say whether Tuscany is better known for its food or its wine and this toss-up is what makes this region perfect for a combination Food & Wine Vacation.
We start our tour in Florence, capital of the Medici, and hit major areas including Chianti, Arezzo, Assisi, and Montepulciano, with a side trip into Umbria. Our days are filled with wine tastings, visits to local food producers and sellers, and even truffle hunting in the forests visited by few tourists.
Tuscany is a spectacular region for a vacation and there is no better way to visit than to focus on the local food and wine. (Note: We can cater to almost any food allergy or eating preference on this and all our tours.)
