“Non ti mettere in cammino se la bocca ‘un sa di vino.”
“Don’t walk if your mouth doesn’t taste like wine.”
In Tuscany, the home of great artists and scientists such as Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Dante Alighieri, and Galileo Galilei, you can breathe in Italian gastronomic culture while strolling through the green hills and vineyards. Florence, Siena, Montepulciano and Montalcino are just some of the art cities and enchanting villages you can admire in Tuscany.
Tuscan cured meats are a must in regional cuisine, particularly the prized and indigenous Cinta Senese breed of pork are a unique delicacy, to be accompanied by one of the many celebrated red wines that have made Tuscany one of the symbolic regions of Italian oenology. The condiment par excellence in Tuscany is extra virgin olive oil, the fruit of one of the many cultivars. At the end of the meal, before getting up from the table, a true Tuscan never gives up two Cantucci accompanied by a good glass of Vin Santo.
Tuscany and its delicacies are waiting for you, try them all!
