Tuscany is an ideal place for a food-centric vacation: from the famous wines produced here to the regional cheeses and organic olive oils that are central to traditional dishes as they have been from generation to generation.
After arriving in Florence, you'll pick up your rental car and make your way to the Villa Casagrande, where you'll enjoy 6 nights in this picture-perfect Tuscan villa. From this beautiful property, you can easily visit Florence for "must see" sites as the Duomo, the Pitti Palace as well as the Uffizi Gallery. You'll also be centrally placed to take day trips all around Tuscany, including Pisa, Sienna, and many other hidden villages.
We've also customized your vacation to include a wide variety of culinary experiences including a Chianti wine tasting in Castello di Meleto - and another wine tasting and tour right at the Villa Casagrande; a pizza making class; and two afternoon classes in traditional Tuscan cuisine also taught at the Villa Casagrande with Chef Paola Boncini. Afterwards, you'll eat and enjoy the fruits of your labor - typical Tuscan and Italian dishes, topped off by sweets and Tuscan cakes. Add an additional night so you can really explore the gastronomic soul of Tuscany.
Stay an extra night in Tuscany at the Villa Casagrande with breakfast and extended rental car for only $100 more per person.

Located at the bottom of the castle walls, the hotel's wellness centre includes an indoor pool, outdoor pool (seasonal), sauna, hydro-massage tub, hammam, sensory showers and relaxation areas. The restaurant, located in the antique halls of arms during the winter, and in the courtyard during the summer months, specializes in the delicate flavors of Tuscany, woven into a cuisine that is both light and international.
Plan a visit to see the world-famous art at the Uffizi Gallery and the Pitti Palace.
Visit the Church of San Lorenzo to see the Medici Chapel and the mausoleum designed by Michelangelo.
Visit the oldest pharmacy in the world in the Basilica of Santa Maria Novella and shop for the same products favored by Catherine de’Medici, Princess Caroline of Monaco and Catharine Zeta-Jones to name a few.
Walk the streets to see if you can spot locations that hosted the filming of movies such as Light in the Piazza, Hannibal, and A Room with a View.
Travel south of the city to Chianti and sample the famous wine where the Sangiovese grapes used to make it are grown and the wine is made.
Visit the outdoor market and rub the snout of Il Porcellino for luck (and get in some great shopping with a heavy dose of haggling!)
