Vacation in Tuscany for gastronomic delights

A vacation in Tuscany is a wonderful opportunity to experience some mouth-watering food and drink, as the region is world renowned for the quality of the local cuisine.

This includes wine from the Chianti, Montalcino and Montepulciano areas, which are well known for their ripe, fruity red wines. These go particularly well with grilled meat and game, another speciality of the region.

When you stay at the Palazzo Ravizza hotel during your vacation in Tuscany, you will have the change to try some delicious local food. The Il Capriccio restaurant uses the finest ingredients, all sourced from local farms. The herbs and vegetables used in our restaurant are all grown in the hotel garden.

All the cheeses used in our restaurant are chosen based on a commitment to organic, sustainable production, as well as the quality of the flavour.

As with many regions in Italy, Tuscany is known for the quality of its olive oil. Lucca is the principle oil producing area. This can be used as a dressing, or in cooking. The famous Chianina cattle stocks produce “Fiorentina” steaks on the grill.

The city of Siena is famous for its desserts, so you can also indulge your sweet tooth during a vacation in Tuscany. The Panforte, a sweet and sophisticated fruit cake originated in Siena, many centuries ago.

A vacation in Tuscany will be truly filled with gastronomic delights.
