About the location: A landscape of wooded hills, vineyards, and olive groves—and vistas that have barely changed since Giovanni Bellini, Michelangelo, and Donatello first beheld them 600 years ago. Benvenuti in Toscana—welcome to Tuscany, where the land is rustic, the people are warm and welcoming and the food is simple, succulent, and bold—prime ingredients for all unforgettable gay vacations..
During this gay Italian culinary tour a short distance from Florence, you, your partner and other gay and lesbian travelers will see and experience the rich cuisine and culture of classic Tuscany—with guided tours exploring the medieval towns of Siena, San Gimignano and the famous Chianti Classico region of Italy—birthplace of Italy’s most famous wine: the floral, nutty, versatile Chianti. It's also home to the "Tignanello," considered one of the first Super Tuscans made by the famous Antinori family, who have been producing wines in this part of Italy for more than seven centuries.
When you’re not exploring the region or relaxing by the pool, you will help prepare several classic Tuscan dishes. The cooking school classes will combine both traditional Tuscan dishes — known for their refined simplicity — as well as innovative dishes with Chef Matia Barciulli or his sous chef. It’s one of the tastiest Italian culinary tours, and one of the most exquisite gay friendly vacation spots in Europe.
Don't forget the wine. The Antinori family is one of the most well-known winemaking families in Italy, and you'll delve into the world of Antinori wine while staying on their beautiful estate that is situated on a 300-plus hectare piece of land. Pair these world-famous wines with dishes in Trattoria della Fonte, as well as the Michelin-star Osteria di Passignano — among other restaurants — and you'll discover why Antinori wines are so famous.
During your culinary vacation, you'll stay at the lovely Fonte de' Medici, which is perched on the hilltop and surrounded by vineyards. The beautiful property, that dates back to the 1400s, features elegant B&B rooms named after various wine grapes, as well as a trattoria, tennis court, and swimming pool.
