AN UNFORGETTABLE EXPERIENCE FOR YOUR PALATE

Arianna & Friends arranges an original full-day tour to the hilly area beyond Livorno with a very interesting cookery lesson. We drive to a fantastic panoramic olive oil farm and start preparing dishes with a local chef before sitting for a delicious lunch. In the afternoon we drive to a small medieval village for a walking tour in a truly Italian scenery.



Here the outline:

- Private transfer by minivan or minibus from the port of Livorno. Our English speaking operator meets you directly at the ship in the morning at your convenience and tours you for the whole day. The tour leader gives you an interesting introduction to the region Tuscany, its uses, facts and history, while reaching the place. French, German, Russian, Spanish and Italian are also possible.

- Within just 45 minutes drive we reach a panoramic farm in the hilly area around Livorno. Here we start visiting the farm and get an introduction to the production of extra virgin olive oil while walking through a charming olive grove.

- Past the olive grove, we access to the kitchen of the farm, where we meet an experienced and welcoming local cook, who introduced us to the typically Tuscan cooking techniques. Here we start preparing a full Tuscan meal using fresh ingredients and products from the farm. During the class you learn about a lot of secrets and tips to make your dishes delicious.

- The lesson is followed by a rich and delicious lunch in a the terrace outdoor in front of the kitchen, which includes:

• Appetizers
• Primo main course
• Secondo main course
• Dessert
• Wines of the house & Italian coffee

- After lunch we drive for about 20 minutes and reach a fascinating medieval village called Peccioli with wonderful panoramas all around. The village is a perfect example of a truly Italian location, with small bars, churches, tiny narrow lanes and hidden squares. The tour culminates on an elevated garden at the level of the rooftops of the buildings in the center of the village, where you have a unique view of Tuscany and an original perspective about how the locals live.
Before departing you will relax at a local bar for a drink or a gelato.

- Return within the early evening, depending on the docking time of the cruiseship.
