Although we are familiar with Italian food and wine, there is nothing like smelling the grapes that make the wine, or witnessing Italian cuisine first hand. In spite of those who say, “Why travel for tasting?”, it’s time to pack your suitcase and take a short but full journey to the Tuscany region, known as the stomach of Italy!

Tuscany, which attracts attention with its picturesque view thanks to its valleys where green flirts with yellow, is a corner of paradise that promises more than an ordinary holiday to its visitors with its traditional structure that does not degenerate, its cuisine blended with art and local wines. This region, which is home to Italy’s most important gastronomic centers, is also a place where you can witness unforgettable landscapes and be fascinated by its artistic heritage bearing traces of art masters such as Michelangelo, Botticelli and Raphael. The city of Pisa with the Leaning Tower of Pisa, Pisa Cathedral, the Square of Miracles, the city of Cortona, famous for its local flavors and wineries, and the medieval town of San Gimignano, which is connected to the city of Siena, are among the places to visit in Tuscany.

Take a Flavor Journey to Tuscan Cuisine

Each region of Italy, where you can meet fifty shades of pasta, has its own unique flavors and diversity. Tuscan cuisine must have had its share of the region’s agriculture and animal husbandry culture, as it is nowadays called the “Stomach of Italy” by everyone. The surface shape and climate of the region are conducive to agriculture, and you would be right that the vineyards produce grapes that leave unforgettable flavors on the palate. From these grapes, Tuscan wines such as Vino Nobile, Super Tuscan, Chianti and Carmignano are produced. Tuscan dishes accompanied by wine are memorable for their naturalness and flavor. Pici and Papardelle pasta, Riboletta, Pappa col Pomodoro and Acquacotta Maremmana soup, Risotto Nero blended with cuttlefish and Bistecca alla Fiorentina are among the local tastes of Tuscany.

It’s not for nothing that they say, “He who travels knows, not he who reads”. We invite you to a Tuscany tasting tour where you can explore the sights of Tuscany, taste Tuscan food and wines in local restaurants as well as Michelin-starred restaurants, and witness an unforgettable view from vineyards to lush green valleys.
