** Tuscany and Cinque Terre culturious tour **
8 Days / 7 Nights from $4,925*pp
For the culturally curious (or culturious’), Tuscany travel is all about tasting the flavours of olive oil. It’s a lesson in key Italian words to get you comfortable ordering gelato on the piazza or choose lunch at a local market. It’s feeling much more savvy after an art history briefing. It’s walking, jogging, cycling, or if you wish, rollerblading on the walls of Lucca. It’s sharing vino made from grapes in the vineyards you’ve just walked through. It’s about becoming a part of day-to-day Italian life.
Experience the ‘culturious’ side of Tuscany and immerse yourself in the Italian way of life with Tauck’s 8 day Tuscany and Cinque Terre culturious tour.
Priced from $4,925* per person, twin share highlights of this truly immersive tour include taking part in a cooking class in Fattoria Colle Verdi, embarking on a bike ride atop the medieval walls of Lucca and drinking vino made from grapes in the vineyards you’ve just walked through.
