TUSCANY (3-4 DAYS)
We recommend spending 3-4 days in Tuscany, just below Piedmont. This region is known for its wine, landscapes and colorful villages.
Tenon Tip: When departing for Tuscany from Piedmont, we recommend a short stop in Moderna. Here, you can visit boutique producers of prosciutto, parmesan cheese, balsamic vinegar and wine.
The wine region of Tuscany is sure to please each of your senses. In Siena, you can visit the Piazza del Campo, Piazza del Duomo and San Gimignano, a quintessential Italian hill town surrounded by 13th-century walls.
Apart from the stunning architecture is some of Italy’s finest produce. Few wine regions have the instant name recognition of Tuscany’s Chianti, first legally defined in 1716. Some of Chianti’s most acclaimed wines, however, don’t carry its name. Only reds based on the Sangiovese grape can be called Chianti. Indulge with a tasting at a local Chianti winery that welcomes connoisseurs and passionate wine lovers alike. You’ll be given a tour of the vineyards, winery and cellar as well as a thorough explanation of the various stages of production from harvest to winemaking.
