Tuscany & Cinque Terre

2015 Prices From $4,390 for 8 Days - Culturious

For the Culturious, Tuscany travel is tasting the flavors of olive oil – and sharing likes and dislikes. It’s a lesson in key Italian words to get you comfortable ordering gelato on the piazza... or choosing your lunch at a local market. It’s feeling that much more savvy after an art history briefing. It’s walking through the medieval alleys of Siena... or bicycling along the walls of Lucca. It’s laughter. It’s sharing vino made from grapes in the vineyards you’ve just walked through and kicking back. It’s about becoming a part of day-to-day Italy... and new views on life.

The Tauck Difference

This trip is definitely a winner. We were informed by several experts in art restoration, and met great people who also traveled on this trip. The small group was a wonderful group. All locations chosen to visit were fantastic. There were many unique memories... meeting local restoration experts, seeing and becoming immersed in local traditions like making pasta, absorbing Italy's art and history, discovering unique places like Cinque Terre, Lucca, and the Carrara marble quarries... this experience was well organized.
