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—some of the most dramatic coastal scenery on the planet. To these wondrous surroundings, we’ve added wine tastings and local lunches, wine with dinner and expert guides leading the way. The Travel Club’s exclusive trip to Tuscany can’t be beat!

Currently masks are still mandatory outside, on public transportation, restaurants, museums and attractions. This may change by October as vaccination levels increase.
Negative Test Requirement
All airline passengers to the United States ages two years and older must provide a negative COVID-19 viral test taken within three calendar days of travel. Alternatively, travelers to the U.S. may provide documentation from a licensed health care provider of having recovered from COVID-19 in the 90 days preceding travel.
We have made arrangements for our group members to get tested at a local lab with minimal interruption to the tour schedule. The lab will deliver the tests to our hotel. The cost of the test is to be paid by the traveler at the lab. The exact date and price will be included in your final documents.
We will continue to provide updates related to mask and test requirements as we get closer to departure.
