When you think of Tuscany...

Tuscany…. the very name evokes a vision of Italian fine arts, of Florence and Michelangelo, of hills covered with vineyards and olive groves, of spectacular architecture and warm hospitality. Here, the finest artists dwelt and created their incredible masterpieces. It is here that art is not banned to museums only, but shows itself in every form of human expression. Just think of Italian fashion & Italian design. Think of Italian opera and the art of the Italian Cuisine. Italian cooking is known as one of the world’s best: skilled hands turn the fruits of a blessed earth into delightful dishes. On this journey you will stand in front of the Leaning Tower in Pisa and Michelangelo’s David in Florence. We will take you through the impressive landscapes of Tuscany to medieval Siena and bring the past to life. This journey will also reveal to you the secrets of Italian cuisine. Savour and experience tasty appetizers (antipasti) and fresh pasta, grilled meat specialties and amazing desserts, such as Tiramisu and delicious gelato. Join us for an experience that may change your perception of food and the way you behold art.
