Tuscany and the Adriatic – Fall 2018

An Intimate Food, Wine and Art Week: Eastern Tuscany and the Adriatic

Be among the few Americans to distance yourself from Florence– but only by 40 km. Few Tuscan tours touch upon the quietly beautiful province of Arezzo. This trip to the heart of Italy highlights the food, wine, crafts and “good life” of eastern Tuscany and the neighboring region of Le Marche, on the Adriatic Sea. Good wine and top-quality food, cities filled with art and culture, overnights in historic homes, castles and palaces, and almost none of the crowds found in other regions of Italy. 

Erice, Sicily Sold Out
May 4 2018

The allure of Sicily lies in its contrasts. Palermo, cradle of the Mediterranean and “a city of extremes, a mixture of panache and poverty.” Along our west to east route we visit Agrigento’s magical Greek temples; top wineries; meals that are tantalizing cultural mosaics. Majestic Mt. Etna and its surrounding cities, once the center of Magna Graecia, mark the end of our 9-day adventure.

cafe final shot Sold Out

Indulge in the casual and relaxed pace of Southern France. These azure skies give meaning to the term “French Blue”, and the gnarly olive trees, heady lavender, perky sunflowers, and sublime local wine and food are unsurpassed.  Our week introduces you to the lovely countryside of Provence as well as the impressive Mediterranean coastline. Explore the land of Van Gogh, Chagall and Cezanne.  Discover the magical arid landscapes and millennia of culinary traditions, celebrated wines and rich history.  Acres of peaceful countryside await your exploration.

Wonderful food – many meals are included; rustic to refined
