Many people get in touch with us because they are considering a tour in Italy, and they are just undecided between a coach tour and a private one. So they ask us: why should I take a private tour? Why with your company? Here are 8 plus 1 good reasons, we hope you enjoy them!
I am in love with Tuscany: a perfect combination of landscapes, art, culture. I really am, also because "il mi nonno”, my grandfather, originally came from Serravalle, in the province of Arezzo. But there’s another reason why I love it so much: its CUISINE.
Tuscan Cuisine is one of the oldest among Italian regional cuisines. Even today, many of the typical dishes are still prepared according to their original recipe. Like almost all Italian traditional cuisines, the Tuscan one is characterized by simple preparations with easy-to-find country ingredients, but here dishes always have strong and decisive flavors. I love Tuscan cuisine because it is straight, truthful, trattoria-style; the dishes are tasty and salutary, nutritious, refined without becoming pretentious.
When you are in Italy, eat like a local.
Yes, because if you do not know Italian cuisine you might think you are eating a typical Amatriciana in Florence, or enjoying a typical Mortadella in Venice. The fact is that Italian cuisine is not a national but a regional cuisine, and each region has its own specialties: if you find the same dishes in another region, many times the "national" version is far from the original, “local” one. So, it's time to venture into a world of typical restaurants where you will not find Italians but Romans, Venetians, Florentines, Neapolitans.
