Featured Tours & Cooking Vacations
OUR TUSCANS OF THE MONTH
On the left is Guido, our favorite butcher located in Regello which is town about 30 minutes SE of Florence. His bistecca alla fiorentina (t-bones) are the best! On the right is Elena, our wonderful and exuberant cooking teacher, she does magic in her kitchen and many of you will have the opportunity to spend an afternoon with her!
We are the locals! We'll show you Tuscany the way it's meant to be seen...
Tuscany happens to be one of the greatest destinations in Italy and most probably in all of Europe.
The elegance of the rolling hills lined with cypress tress create a majestic atmosphere unique to this part of Italy.
The exuberance of the people together with the food and wine create the perfect vacation setting. Tasting Tuscany offers Scheduled Group Tours/Vacations as well as Tailor Made Packages for groups.
Tuscany is all FOOD, WINE & FUN and that is what our tours are all about. You will be with a small group of people cooking together, visiting wineries together and laughing together after wonderful meals. Our aim is to take you to visit our friends & family around the area and to show you a different way of life!
What sets us apart from the others? We create our vacations & tours, you'll have the owner or one of his hosts and fabulous guides with you at all times. We don't buy or resell anything. The owner of Tasting Tuscany was one of the first in Italy to actually create and market a cooking holiday way back in 1994!
Everything we do revolves around great food, wonderful wine, visiting special unique places & having a fantastic time!
We create wonderful and unique experiences for our guests. Our cooking vacations & tours are the farthest thing from mass tourism. As groups are small, you'll feel as if you are with friends being immersed in the best of Tuscany! You will be with like-minded people that all love great food and wine who come to experience and enjoy all that Italy has to offer.
Our job is to ensure that you have a memorable experience. We work in the "making people happy business" and our primary goal is to ensure that our guests are happy. Our success is thanks to the wonderful relationships we have with local suppliers, wineries, family restaurants, hotels, chefs, farmers, tour guides etc.... the people with whom we work so closely. Because of these contacts we are able to give you an even more special experience. We want you to enjoy, relax and have an authentic and unique vacation. Our guides and hosts are there to assist and to ensure your time with us is truly "favoloso"!
Creating Memories with Every Trip
We go out of our way to give every guest special attention from even before the tour begins, you will have Marc or one of his hosts or guides with you at all times helping you to experience the place we call home, a very special place in Italy. You'll leave with great memories and new friends!
