During this seven-day Italian vacation, you’ll stay at Villa Casagrande, a 14th-century estate in the heart of Tuscany. Considered the birthplace of the Renaissance, this region in northern Italy is home to the city of Florence—where Michelangelo, Botticelli, and da Vinci changed European art forever—and a vineyard-dotted countryside that has some of the loveliest, most timeless scenery on the continent. Tuscany’s fertile soil nourishes a crop of world-renowned wines and also produces plump olives that are a vital part of most of the area's best. dishes.

While you’re here, you'll become immersed in Italian culture and cuisine with wine tastings and classes where you’ll prepare authentic entrees and your own hand-tossed pizza. At the villa, which has been producing wine for four centuries, chefs craft gourmet fare that you can enjoy al fresco at the onsite restaurant. Take advantage of this Getaway’s included rental car to explore Tuscany's rolling hills, world-class museums, and vineyards. Must-see stops in the area include the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, which houses an unparalleled collection of Renaissance paintings.
