A gorgeous, sun-drenched climate; romantic landscapes; exquisite art and architecture and traditional delicious cuisine—experience the Italy of your dreams in Tuscany with The Travel Club. From accommodations at the beautiful Grand Hotel Plaza in the exclusive spa resort of Montecatini Terme, we’ll enjoy excursions through the Tuscan countryside, visiting Florence—“The Cradle of the Renaissance”—and home to the Academy of Fine Arts and Michelangelo’s David, the Duomo and Palazzo Vecchio—elegant Lucca with its Roman reminders, beautiful Siena with the most gorgeous scallop-shaped piazza and astonishing San Gimignano—the city of medieval towers. We’ve set aside a full day to explore the Cinque Terre, five crazily constructed fishing villages, set amid some of the most dramatic coastal scenery on the planet. To these wondrous surroundings, we’ve added wine tastings and fabulous local lunches, wine with dinner at the hotel and expert guides leading the way. The Travel Club’s exclusive trip to Tuscany can’t be beat!

I just returned from the Classic Tuscany trip. Excellent in every way! Hotel charming and waitstaff, receptionists...could not have been better. Food, delicious! Our tour manager was wonderful! She went out of her way to make our trip memorable. She shared with us her vast knowledge of Italy from history to the people and their way of life. My travel group was full of very nice people. All seemed to have traveled with SMTC before. Some multiple times! —Denise K, April 2018
