Global Morning News – A Taste of Tuscany

Posted on: June 27, 2023

When people talk about Italy they rave about Tuscany. Is it the food? Is it the hills? Maybe it’s the wine. For centuries people have been flocking to the spa town of Montecatini to sample the waters. The town centre is full of beautiful waterfalls and cute little restaurants.

The area offers a host of things to do and that’s why I recommend staying put in Montecatini itself and then using this as a base to explore the surrounding area.

I find that people these days want immersive experiences – not hours and hours on a bus just for one overnight stop. This answers all those wants.

You spend your time in a beautiful art nouveau hotel in the centre of Montecatini. This boutique style hotel is well located for your 8 night stay.

During that time you will enjoy breakfast and 3 dinners plus a number of guided excursions to choose from.

You will get to enjoy trips to Lucca, a visit to Florence to see David (have to go and see David!). Another day visit Siena and of course one of your days there will include a trip to Pisa.

There are rest days too where you can just enjoy the local ambiance. You even get a chance to learn how to make cheese and then enjoy a traditional Tuscan meal in the countryside.

What a fabulous tour – and no packing and unpacking every second day!

We have a deal on this that includes flights from Calgary, transfers and all the above.
