TRIP: In Toscana con amici (Aug. 10, 2013)

  • Apr 5, 2013 · 11:30 PM

Why do so many people love Tuscany? Well, what's there not to love about it?

Tuscany is the birthplace of some of the world's foremost poets, including Dante Alighieri and Francesco Petrarca, and artists of the calibre of Michelangelo and Donatello. Tuscan scientists such as Leonardo Da Vinci and Galileo Galilei have shaped the way we live and see the universe.

Others love Tuscany for its enviably balanced climate and abundant countryside, not to mention the incredible wine and food traditions that the people of this sun-kissed region of Italy have perfected over the centuries!

And who could forget the remarkable contribution that Tuscany has made to the worlds of music and film around the globe, with world-renown composers such as Giacomo Puccini, performers like Andrea Bocelli, and award-winning film directors, including Franco Zeffirelli and Roberto Benigni?

Whatever your reason to visit Tuscany, this tour gives you a unique opportunity to visit the landmarks of major cities such as Florence, Pisa and Siena, as well as smaller, yet lovely towns, such as the UNESCO World Heritage city of San Gimignano, and the picturesque seaside town of Talamone.

LAST, but not least, we will spend an entire day touring the spectacular landmarks of Rome, the Eternal City, accompanied by an English-speaking Guide (as well as your Host, Walter).
