Experience Christmas in Tuscany!
Tuscany itself is truly a dream. Its majestic cities, towns and natural landscape beckon people from around the world throughout history and today. The art, architecture and history make this region of Italy one of the most fascinating places in the world.
With this tour we want to show you Tuscany in all her glory, with the added magic of Christmas.
Picture yourself strolling the streets of Florence, the Renaissance Capital, even more radiant than she usually is when all dressed up in twinkling lights and decorations. Rest a while in this ambiance at a patio bar, sipping creamy hot chocolate and listening to street musicians serenade you in this romantic city.
Transfer yourself now into the Tuscan countryside, dusted with a “veil” of frost, winding along scenic roads towards a medieval hilltop town where you will roam through an artisanal Christmas market that enlivens the piazza-life in the main square and streets. Leisurely browse beautiful handmade crafts for gifts (and you too!) then hear the old church bells ringing to remind you that it’s time for a cup of vin brule (hot, spiced wine) before losing yourself in the next quaint street which transports you back in time to medieval life.
Forget about that winter chill by soaking in a natural hot spring at a thermal spa as they did in the Roman times.
Food is a serious undertaking in Tuscany, especially at Christmastime. Learn how to cook a real, typical Italian Christmas dinner and experience the deep-rooted significance of ‘famiglia’ in Italy at this special time of year.
Christmas in Tuscany is delightfully festive and atmospheric. Your holiday season here will be one you treasure forever.
