Enjoy the beautiful drive through the Italian countryside and share stories with your driver as you head for the hills. The country estate that is your final destination is located in those hills, in the midst of Tuscany. You are going to San Miniato, in the lower Arno Valley on the south-eastern hills dominating the river plains, halfway between Pisa and Florence. The medieval village of San Miniato is in the centre of Tuscany and it is preserved as a historic center set on the hill top with the Cathedral, the Episcopal Palace, the Municipal Palace and the Tower Fortress dominating all the surrounding Arno, Era and Egola valleys. You can imagine the view! A short tour of this village will be delivered by the only guide trained to give tours of this village and this will be the start of your adventure.

Eventually you will find yourself in a huge country kitchen, where you will stand side-by-side with your host who is also your chef, Rossella. Flexible in adapting to your tastes, a conversation beforehand will determine the direction of your lessons and ultimately, your meal. The food therefore is customized to your interests and your tastebuds. This unique service takes place on a private country estate just outside of the historic village. In this casual and friendly atmosphere you'll prepare a meal and then sit down to enjoy the creation together with your chef and host. The class can be hands-on or merely observed, and comprises three courses plus wine, water and coffee.

The interaction between your group and your host will deliver more than a great meal. You will depart leaving new friends with the knowledge that you can bring a little of Italy back home with you.

Shore Excursions

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.
