All-Inclusive Adventures to Tuscany

Unique learning programs for travelers ages 50+

The borghi (small villages) of Tuscany have their own pace, their own traditional meals, their own culture and, it sometimes seems, their own world apart from modernity and even from the flow of tourists into some parts of the region. Explore the piazzas, churches, fortresses and hilly landscapes of this smaller, timeless Italy. Interact with the people in markets and cafés, see the masterpieces that have long resided here and taste simple, ancient, delicious Tuscan cuisine.  Learn more about our Italy programs here.

Each Tuscany Adventure includes:

  • All lodgings & most meals
  • Expert-led lectures & field trips
  • Hands-on experiences & performances
  • All gratuities
  • Road Scholar Assurance Plan
