Description

DISCOVER THE TRADITIONS OF TUSCANY

Vitalia Tours’ small group escorted tours are a collection of exclusive out-of-the ordinary excursions and experiences designed for clients that want to immerse themselves in the culture and traditions of Italy. These itineraries are custom designed packages with all your details completely organized but with enough flexibility to allow us some spontaneity. We offer a selection of handpicked activities and special culinary events that offers the most genuine Italian experience for our guests.

For example, our ‘Traditions of Tuscany’ tour this fall is an extraordinarily unique tour that immerses you in the culture and traditions of Tuscany.

Tuscany, like all of Italy is filled with numerous ancient traditions. Each city or village plays host to various colorful religious rituals, historical pageants, medieval-style tournaments, food festivals, and much more.

But in addition, routine tasks are tied to tradition – the daily ritual of making bread or coffee, farmers producing prosciutto, wine or olive oil, or artisans working or honing their craft. And like everything in Italy, these traditions seek to bring people together with good food and good wine at the table.

You’ll see the best of Tuscany in an experience that includes major historical sites as well as off-the-beaten path destinations, and of course, participating in its traditions.

We'll eat like the locals, attend a medieval jousting festival, peruse the local antiques fair, visit creative artisans, learn all about the art & history with our expert local guides, and experience the simple pleasures of exploring the Tuscany region with its incredible scenery, fantastic food and famous wine!

Our ‘Traditions of Tuscany’ Tour, is a fully escorted tour with all of your accommodations, excursions & tours, transportation and most of your meals completely arranged and included. However, we've left you some flexibility for free time to relax in a piazza, meander the small villages we will be visiting, or do some shopping. We'll spend 4 nights in just outside of Arezzo, and 5 nights in the Tuscan countryside.
