Now in its third edition, “Appunti di Viaggio, tales of Tuscany through culture and food” is a project created by the Confesercenti of Arezzo, Livorno, Pistoia, Prato and Siena with the coordination of Confesercenti Toscana for the promotion of restaurants, shops, farms and producers that are part of the Vetrina Toscana network. A real journey of discovery of Tuscany with a rich calendar of events that will take place from May 2023 to February 2024.
The common thread linking all the “Appunti di Viaggio” appointments is the exploration of the territory, culture, history, curiosities and interesting stories along with quality cuisine and typical products from Tuscany. Specifically, the itineraries include a lunch or dinner or a wine tasting with a guided tour of often little-known places in the territory, a trek, a recreational activity, and a cultural initiative (readings and shows) in order to get to know the territory.
The food and wine proposals will be presented by restaurants, farms, and shops that are members of Vetrina Toscana, highlighting the region’s products and food and wine identity with the specific features of its territorial destinations and the quality of its agri-food productions, in line with responsible and sustainable tourism that is increasingly in search of authentic experiences and attentive to the quality of local food and cuisine. The project also foresees the involvement of local tour or environmental guides authorised to work in the relevant territories.
The event, “Appunti di Viaggio, tales of Tuscany through Culture and Food” is a project developed by Vetrina Toscana, with the contribution of the Region of Tuscany and Unioncamere Toscana, with its Chambers of Commerce of Arezzo-Siena, Maremma e Tirreno, and Pistoia-Prato, and with the support of Toscana Promozione Turistica and Fondazione Sistema Toscana.
