Unconventional Tuscany

SOLD OUT! June 17-26, 2023 - The Tuscan Coast and Maremma


Curata Travel and Italian-American food blogger Martina Bartolozzi (AKA @MementoMartina on Instagram) have partnered up to create a food lover’s dream tour to Tuscany. But this isn’t your usual Tuscan tour, because you’ll be visiting areas of the region that are very well-loved by Italians, but that most foreigners have never heard about!  

This trip is perfect for travelers who want plenty of time to rest, who enjoy good food, and who want to get their hands “dirty” and explore the behind-the-scenes of how food is made. This will be an exclusive, small group tour limited to 12 people.

The trip will revolve around two main themes: 

1.     Sustainability - and how to lower our impact on the environment so it can thrive.

2.     Relaxation – it’s a vacation, after all!


BOLGHERI – known for its fabulous red wines;

THE COAST – where we’ll relax in some of Italy’s clearest waters;

MAREMMA – a land of good food, good drink, and good people.
