Experiences in Tuscany

Trying to list everything Tuscany is famous for is like asking how much pizza, pasta or gelato you’re going to eat when you visit. The answer is, a lot more than you originally would have thought.

But what do we know about Tuscan cooking and cuisine? Step beyond Tuscany’s rolling hills and enchanting architecture, and you’ll find a rich gastronomic haven, full of wonderful local delights to wrap your taste-buds around.

Head to Siena to sample the local pasta – hand rolled pici. Treat yourself to a meaty extravaganza in Florence as you tuck into a bistecca alla Fiorentina. Warm up in the cooler months with a comforting bowl of ribolita. Or venture to the western coastal towns like Livorno, where fish takes the crown from this otherwise meat-heavy region.

Top it all off with a delightful slice of homemade torta della nonna. Your only issue will be what local wine to pair it all with.

Discover it all and learn how to make typical Tuscan recipes yourself on one of our incredible cooking holidays in Italy.
