Wine tours are amazing experiences. With very few exceptions, this is true wherever you decide to go. But, what if your next wine tasting tour was not just an amazing one but a life-changing one, as well?
In 2015, Tuscany, Italy produced 3 million hectoliters of wine, further cementing Italy’s status as the largest producer of wine in the world. That same year, 17.43% of all wine came from Italy. The country knows how to make wine and they know how to take care of the visitors who travel there to experience it.
A wine vacation in Italy is one of the best experiences for any couple, whether they have been married for years, are newlyweds, or are still discovering their newly minted romance. It is the romance, indeed, that makes a wine vacation so memorable. Of course, you do not have to be involved in a romantic relationship to enjoy the Italian countryside, but it certainly does not hurt.
Priceline.com’s took a survey in 2016, and, according to 38% of men and 34% of women, the best vacations are romantic vacations. There are many different ways to experience your vacation. Some choose one of a number of grand hotels, while others opt for something a bit smaller and more intimate, like boutique hotels in Tuscany. Either way, the service, you will find, is extraordinary wherever you decide to stay.
As far as grand hotels are concerned, the Grand Hotel Continental in Siena, Italy is a magnificent place to stay. It is one of the most magnificent grand hotels in all of Europe, and it is only a stone’s through from the Piazza del Campo. If you are a James Bond fan, you will have seen the beauties of Siena in the film, “Quantum of Solace.”
You can certainly go your own way, but if you have never been to the Italian countryside before, you might be better off going on a prearranged wine tour. When you go on a tour, you can leave your worries about planning behind. You know you will be going to all of the best spots and receiving the best treatment. Don’t worry, though; you will have plenty of time to explore things on your own.
So, the next time you are thinking about planning a romantic vacation to wine country, think about going on a tour of Tuscany, Italy. They know how to do it better than anywhere else in the world.
