Holidays in Tuscany, Italy
Tuscany is quintessential Italy: a dreamscape of rolling hills topped with willowy cypress trees, shimmering olive groves and rows of tangled vines, peppered with picture-perfect medieval hilltop towns. This rich, rural landscape provides all the ingredients for our chefs as they show you how to rustle up mouth-watering local dishes.
Tuscan fare is simple but hearty and bursting with flavour: from ribollita, a hearty vegetable stew to chunky Tuscan bread soup and rustic pasta dishes such as pici, thick spaghetti with wild boar ragù.
For a break from the kitchen, you can explore the charming alleys of medieval Siena, one of Italy’s best-preserved medieval towns. Built on three hills and surrounded by medieval walls, take in the stunning Duomo, preserved Gothic architecture and of course the famous Piazza del Campo – one of the world’s most unique piazzas. For a change of pace, there is also the charming town of Arezzo, boasting its Piazza Grande, perhaps an excellent opportunity to tuck into a classic bistecca alla fiorentina, a char-grilled T-bone steak washed down with a good Chianti.
The stunning Tuscan scenery and rolling hills are truly hard to beat.
