Under the Tuscan Sun with Frances Mayes


Fans of Frances Mayes' book Under The Tuscan Sun might be tempted by a special tour to Tuscany that features the author as a special guest. 

Guests will be taken on an immersive six-day/five-night journey into Tuscany, celebrating the region’s cultural pleasures and hilltop treasures including a keynote address from Mayes, whose book later became a box office success in the movie of the same name.

The adventure (from Otober 14-19 next year) includes hosted accommodation at Toscana Resort Castelfalfi, part of an 800-year-old medieval hamlet surrounded by vineyards and olive groves. 

This property will also host a cooking class for guests and host talks on the history of the region.

For relaxation there is an indoor pool, steam room and sauna and nine- and 18-hole golf courses.

There will be daily trips, including to Siena and the Chianti Classico vineyards, as well as San Gimignano, a UNESCO World Heritage Site encircled by 13th-century walls and its iconic towers. 

Other activities include truffle hunting, pasta making, wine pairing and olive oil tasting, along with optional activities including cycling and yoga classes. 

Tauck’s welcome reception and dinner will be hosted in a medieval castle showcasing the finest of Tuscan cuisine and wines whilst the farewell dinner on the final evening will be held at the Piaggio Museum.

Tauck Australia’s six-day/five-night Under The Tuscan Sun tour is priced from $6490 per person twin share. Bookings to Tauck Australia on 1300 732 300 or reservations@tauck.com.au. Use the code GOTR.
