More rooms available for May 2019
New: Additional Openings - May 2019 Tuscany Tour

More Rooms Added to the May 2019 Heart of Tuscany Tour

Happy New Year!

We are starting off the new year with some good news for those of you who wish to join us in 2019 for a cooking tour in Tuscany:  we have just learned that the Villa near Florence where we will be hosting our Heart of Tuscany Tour in May 2019 has 3 additional rooms available. This means that we will be able to accommodate a few more people on our upcoming tour (tour dates: Memorial Day Monday May 27 to Sunday June 2, 2019). Note that there are only 3 rooms available so they are likely to fill quickly... 


Tour details

This unique culinary vacation offers you the opportunity to immerse yourself in the delicious cuisine and idyllic countryside of Tuscany from our own private fifteenth century villa. The villa, set among 6,000 olive trees, is close to Florence, making it an ideal location for day trips to the Chianti area, medieval towns like Lucca and San Gimignano, and other beautiful spots in the Tuscan countryside. Our mornings will be spent at the villa, cooking authentic Italian specialties together. Weather permitting, we'll lunch al fresco, and perhaps take a swim in our private pool, surrounded by olive trees, before heading out by private bus to explore nearby Tuscan towns. 

If you have any questions or would like to reserve, please get in touch with us asap by email or phone. For those traveling alone, please ask about the single occupancy supplement. For payment, we have created  an online payment option at the following link.   Payment by check is also possible, please email us for the details as the checks should NOT be sent to the regular Rustico Cooking address.

We plan to run only a few tours per year, and we are already working on a schedule for 2020...(Hint - If you are interested in Southern Italy this will be right up your alley!)  If you want advance notice on culinary tours announcements, we urge you to join the Culinary Tours Early Access. We look forward to hearing from you and hope to cook with you in Italy in May 2019 or in one of our upcoming tours...And we wish you a very happy and healthy New Year!!
