A Taste of Tuscany Journey through the celebrated Tuscan countryside to discover the charming village of San Gimignano, a little gem you should not miss out. Walking through the Old City means plunging into the Middle Ages and getting a taste of what the city must have been like more than seven hundred years ago. It is known for its famous towers, white Vernaccia wine, saffron, and olive oil. Legend has it that in the 12th century, rival families of San Gimignano began a tower-building competition to display their power and wealth- and 72 towers were built. Today, the remaining 14 towers have earned the town its modern designation as "Medieval Manhattan". Your adventure does not stop here. Take part to a traditional Tuscan meal, including coffee and drinks, in a picturesque country setting and enjoy the great food and wine that the region has to offer. This wonderful dinner with regional dishes is prepared using the finest local ingredients. Make your dreams come true and live the Tuscan life for an evening!

Gondola Serenade Enjoy a ride in a traditional gondola, gliding through centuries-old canals, under famous arched bridges, past lavish palaces and quaint piazzas. These long, narrow, flat-bottomed boats with a high prow and stern were designed specifically for the Venetian canals and made in unique shipyards called Squero. Black is the obligatory color, due to a law passed to reduce how the rich and noble over-decorated their personal craft. The comb at the front of the gondola is made of iron and serves not only to balance the boat, but is also the symbol of gondolas and Venice. The six comb teeth represent the six Venetian districts- i sestieri. Note: the gondola is to be shared with other guests (maximum 6 participants on each gondola). There will be one musician on board of one of the gondola boats in your fleet.

Approximate value: €39 EUR per person
