Experience Tuscany in style on Tauck’s six day “Under the Tuscan Sun” special event this October. Prices start at $5,190 per person

by Michele Hoey

Tauck is expanding its holiday repertoire into highly focused travel experiences called “Tauck Events.”

The third vacation in this category is “Under the Tuscan Sun,” and it’s a winner.

This six-day getaway takes you to the Toscana Resort Castelfalfi, a beautiful hilltop villa complex overlooking lovely grounds and a painterly countryside.

The estate offers contemporary comfort while maintaining a traditional Tuscan decorative sensibility. The grounds include a pool, nearby golf course, and, for an additional charge, opportunities for bicycling or horseback riding.

The Tauck Event also offers the touches one expects from this vacation leader.

You’ll appreciate opening remarks from Under the Tuscan Sun author Frances Mayes. You’ll tour Volterra and learn enriching details about its Etruscan heritage. And you’ll have a private – and rare – tour of a private home in one of San Gimignano’s towers.

You’ll also learn about Siena’s famous Palio horserace from a local expert and sample Sienese hospitality during a neighborhood-prepared lunch. My brother, who lived in Siena, says this is an absolute “must-do,” as this opens a window into how the Palio connects to Siena’s heart and soul.

We strongly encourage you to call us today and book this unique Tauck Event!
