8 Day Tuscan Adventure 2021
time 8 Days / 6 Nights

Dig in to the famous and beloved culture of Tuscany with a trip to Siena and San Gimignano, a visit to the Leaning tower of Pisa, a tour of Florence including the Duomo & Accademia Gallery, and even a private cooking class at a Florentine signora's beautiful country home to taste some Tuscan delicacies and local wines!

Enjoy a private cooking class at a Florentine signora's beautiful home located in the outskirt of Florence. The house was built in the 11th century as a lookout tower. Later, it became the residence of Francesco Granacci, a successful painter in the 16th century and one of Michelangelo’s close friends, and for this reason it was named “Casa del Pittore” (Painter’s house). It’s now a gorgeous renovated stone farmer’s house on a hilltop overlooking Florence.

During your 3-hour hands-on cooking class, you will learn how to prepare a typical 4-course Tuscan meal. The menu may slightly vary depending on the season and the fresh ingredients available, and it will usually include a starter, home-made pasta from scratch, a second dish of meat (beef, pork or chicken), and a dessert.

At the end, savor the meal you prepared paired with some of the finest Tuscan wines.
