Trouvaille is proud to partner with A Toast to Travel to offer Trouvaille members and particiapnts a very special week of living like a local and living well! A Toast to Travel offers highly curated and hosted experiences in Tuscany, Italy. Every aspect of the experience is planned out and vetted and all the work is done for you. Your job is to have fun! After travelling and living in Italy for years, your hosts, Natalie and John, will dazzle you with experiences each day ranging from truffle hunting to hands-cooking lessons to wine tasting with the locals. Currently, there are two experiences offered to our members.
Tuscan Wine and Culture
Our Tuscan Wine and Culture experience is designed for the lover of wine, food and culture. Based in the heart of Florence, Italy at a five star palace, each day we host our guests with specially designed meals, visits to exclusive wineries in Chianti not easily found by tourists, visits to main squares and sites in Florence and views of breathtaking art collections at the Uffizi and Accademia Galleries. We’ve designed wine tastings at the vineyards of small batch wineries, not easily found by tourists and even a historic Tuscan banquet where Leonardo da Vinci painted his masterpiece, the Mona Lisa. The meals are carefully curated and farm to table. All of our travel is done via Mercedes and never a tour bus. Check out our available dates here: http://www.atoasttotravel.com/schedule/.
Cooking Under the Tuscan Sun
What's better than spending a week in Italy? Learning how to cook classic Tuscan dishes with plenty of local wine, that's what! Trouvaille is proud to partner with A Toast to Travel to offer Trouvaille members an exquisite week of daily hands-on cooking classes, visiting local markets and learning the secrets of how of the locals live, hunting for truffles, getting your culture on with yoga and painting classes, plus a visit to Siena. Participants will relax in restored villas in the countryside with private rooms and apartments when not exploring the area. It's a peek into living the good life and we are proud to bring you this experience! Check out available dates here: http://www.atoasttotravel.com/cookingschedule/.
