Tour Tuscany

cooking class

To soak up the harvest season in Tuscany join Hedonistic Hiking's gourmet walking holiday in September to enjoy Chianti, castles and authentic Tuscan cooking.

The tour explores the beautiful hills of Siena and the heart of Chianti wine growing with time to meet and talk to local wine-makers. Visiting a Renaissance garden and centuries old castles bring to life the history of this stunning region, while wine and olive-oil tastings are a highlight of the holiday. A hands-on opportunity to make delicious fresh pasta with a charismatic local chef is not to be missed!

Mid-week there is a full day in the World Heritage City of Siena, home to the famous Palio horserace and arguably the most beautiful piazza in the whole of Italy.

There are five days of walking which range from 5 to 10 miles, and the support vehicle is always on hand so people can walk as much or as little as they please. Gourmet picnics are provided at lunchtime on the walks showcasing the very best of seasonal Tuscan produce.

Accommodation for this tour is based in two luxurious hotels - the first converted from a medieval village, the second a former palace in the centre of a Tuscan village. One hotel has a pool and beautiful gardens, the other has a Spa.
