Tuscan Food & Drink Extravaganza

On this Platinum DreamTrip, savor Italian cuisine & wine, visit San Gimignano & Siena, and stay at a medieval palace-turned-hotel in Florence.

About Your Trip

Tuscany, one of the most coveted places on the planet, is revered for historical and cultural landscapes and is the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance. On this Platinum DreamTrip, enjoy front-row seats to all things Tuscan, from masterpieces in architecture and centuries-old landmarks to exceptional food and wine. You’ll spend time in 3 amazing cities, all home to UNESCO World Heritage sites. In San Gimignano, stroll the medieval streets filled with squares, churches and towers from days gone by. Likewise, Siena is equally impressive with its magnificent Gothic cathedral, beloved medieval square and much more. In Florence, admire the beauty of its historic center as you walk in the footsteps of notable residents like the powerful Medici family and medieval poet Dante.

All that sightseeing can make a person famished. But, no need to worry! Along the way, you’ll make several stops for mouthwatering food and delectable wines. At a local estate on the way to Siena, relish a 4-course lunch, where you’ll feast on truffle lasagna, cantucci (Tuscan biscotti) with Vin Santo (Italian dessert wine), and much more. Before lunch is over, you’ll sample extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar and 15 different wines. And if that’s not enough, head to a historical villa in the Florentine hills where your palate will be treated to a 3-course dinner featuring bruschetta, cold cuts, pasta, roasted pork loin and more, in addition to 4 more samples of wine!

What we love:

• While in Tuscany, be generous when sprinkling extra virgin olive oil on your food — it’s considered by many to be the best in the world.
• Whether you’re a fan of red or white, Tuscan wine exceeds expectations with bouquets that range from very sweet to very dry and everything in between.
• On the bronze doors of Porta del Paradiso, or Gates of Paradise, are 10 panels carved with Old Testament scenes that have been revered around the world since their appearance in the 15th century.
• Your hotel in Florence has been around since the 13th century, and at one time, it was the residential palace of a noble Italian family.
