Tuscany Travel Tips
Keep in Mind...
- Take a Cooking Class You can bring home some Tuscan cooking skills if you take a class at traveler-recommended schools like Tuscana Saporita and Chef Paolo Monti's Cucina Italiana
- Take a Wine Tour A bus tour is both a fun and safe way to see Tuscany while tasting the regional vintages. Taste Tuscany has won over many travelers for its tour guides and wineries.
- Take Your Time Tuscany, like the wines it produces, should be savored. If you can, spend at least a week in this glorious region.
When the film adaptation of Frances Mayes' Under the Tuscan Sun came out in 2003, the idea that Tuscany was indeed a place of romance, chianti, olives, aromatic cooking and, of course sunshine was fermented. Today, many travelers visit this glorious region in northwest Italy to celebrate their nuptials, whether it's for their honeymoon or their 50th anniversary. The combination of castles-turned-wineries, elegant cypress trees, cascading hills and leafy vineyards is simply heavenly. Time seems to slow in this effortlessly idyllic place. And what better way to unwind than by savoring a glass of vino under the Tuscan sun?
