If you’ve never been to Tuscany, you’re missing out on lots if it comes to having a great wine experience. There is so much to see and do in Tuscany that you can easily spend your entire vacation just exploring the many wonderful towns and villages.
But what’s even better is that even if you only get a small amount of time in Tuscany, you’ll still have a great time because the smaller region means that each visit will be different than the last. Here are some wine experience suggestions for people who want to spend time in the Italian countryside.
First, if you haven’t been to Tuscany and you’re looking for a great night out, a wine tasting night in town is the perfect place to start. You can go to the Piazza Santa maria novella in Florence or the Duomo in Lucca. You’ll get a taste of local and Italian wine along with great food and music. Either way, you’ll have fun and be ready for another full day of shopping or studying for a presentation the next morning.
If you’re planning to make a trip to Tuscany and you want to explore the vineyards while you’re there, you can take a wine tasting tour. Many companies offer wine tours of Italy that can last anywhere from two to three days.
You’ll be taken around each vineyard learning about the history and culture as you go along. If you want to be able to walk away from your experience completely satisfied, this is the best way to go.
