Join Scott on a Tour of Tuscany, May/June 2020

Written By Scott Joseph On September 23, 2019

Il Borro Estate

Start planning now to join me on a tour of Tuscany May 30 through June 7 when I host an Art in Voyage journey to Florence and the Arezzo region.

We’ll spend three nights at a five-star hotel in beautiful Firenze while we take a private food tour of the city, visit farms and markets, take cooking classes with local chefs, and of course drink wonderful Italian wines.

On our way to Arezzo and the five-star Il Borro resort we’ll hunt for truffles in Chianti and eat our harvest with our lunch. During our four nights at Il Borro (pictured at top), a former village transformed by the Ferragamo family into a wine estate and luxurious resort, we’ll visit the villages of Siena and Montepulciano, and we’ll learn about Italian farm to table cuisine sitting at a table on the farm.

Two of the included meals will be at Michelin-starred restaurants. And you’ll have the opportunity to join me for a “critique exercise” and contribute to the review of a Tuscan restaurant.

We’ll do more than just eat and drink. We’ll wander the vineyards and see the soil, learn about the climate and what makes Tuscan wines unique. And we’ll hear about the culture of the cuisine from locals whose passion is to preserve the integrity of the regional foods.

This will be my second journey with Art In Voyage and I can tell you that owner Mikael Audebert arranges only the finest accommodations and tours for his guests. What’s more, the group is kept small – eight or 10 people – to assure an intimate experience. Besides the many planned meals and guided tours, you’ll also have plenty of opportunity to explore on your own, to relax or to shop in Florence’s many markets.

I love Tuscany, and Florence is one of my favorite cities. I can’t wait to show it to you. But because there is limited space, you’ll want to reserve yours now. Visit Art In Voyage’s Food Secrets of Tuscany for more specific details and pricing.

Then start brushing up on your Italian.
