At the end of the trip, you are invited to extend for 4 days in Tuscany, where we will travel to the Siena area, first stopping for lunch at the famous butcher Dario Cecchini, who was featured in Bill Buford's book Heat. Dario quotes Dante and sings arias as he butchers.
Once situated either in Siena or on the outskirts, we will have 1/2 day wine and olive oil tasting, 1/2 day tour of Siena, and 1/2 day cooking class. We do not have the pricing for the Tuscany extension, since most hotels have not set their prices for 2014, but our travel agent with her magic wand, promises something in the next few weeks. If you are interested, please go to my website and click on the brochure at the bottom of the page, all the information is is there. Merlene will take great care of you, and can help with airfare, and other arrangements.
