Renaissance art via restaurants and vineyards.
April to October
Nothing promises culture, elegance, and a damned good meal quite like a tour of Tuscany. On this tour, head to the birthplace of the Renaissance, before exploring the beautiful romanesque masonry of Siena and San Gimignano. After the mandatory galleries and cathedrals, get started on the real delight of this tour: your busy culinary schedule. Pecorino, steak, saffron, wild boar—this region offers some of the world’s best eats. So fill your glass and loosen your belt on your tour of Tuscany.
Start your tour of Tuscany in Florence, home of the Renaissance. Head to the Uffizi Museum for Gentileschi’s Judith Slaying Holofernes among the Caravaggios, Titians, and Botticellis. After all that culture, it’s time to eat. Test your culinary skills at one of the town’s many cooking classes, before heading to a Trattoria for the real deal: Pappardelle with truffle and wild boar is a must, preferably with a glass of Nobile di Montepulciano.
Escape the grandiosity of Florence to San Gimignano, a charming hilltop town where stone buildings and good food have welcomed travelers for centuries. Competing medieval families built the 72 romanesque towers that adorn its skyline, visible for miles around. Old buildings aside, those in the know come to San Gimignano for its saffron. Indulge in locally-caught game doused in the spice, served with a luxurious glass of Vernaccia di San Gimignano white wine.
You’ll fall in love with Siena from the moment you step onto the Piazza Il Campo. Gaze up at the black and white stripes of the elegant cathedral, before heading inside to see Donatello’s sculpture The Feast of Herod. End a day with the Sienese in the evening heat, sipping a rich glass of Toscana and enjoying bistecca Toscana, a premium steak that was the foodie’s favorite way before Wagyu.
What’s a better end to your tour than luxury wine tasting in the rolling Tuscan hills? Answer: one that comes with Pecorino on the side. Make your way north from Siena into the Chianti region, known as the “Bordeaux of Italy” for its wines. Finish your tour of Tuscany the right way, under the shade of a cypress tree with a glass of the finest Chianti Superiore in a land that tastes as good as it looks.
