Castagneto Food & Drink Tours

Savor your way through the narrow streets and squares of Castagneto Carducci, a medieval village perched on a hilltop, facing the Mediterranean sea. You’ll discover its ancient history, architecture, and culture as we stop for delicious local dishes and learn about traditional Tuscan cuisine. You’ll hear about Giosuè Carducci, one of the greatest Italian poets who loved eating and drinking, just like us! We’ll go down the Holy Stairs of a Medieval castle, the residence of the 1,000-year ruling family, Della Gherardesca. We’ll pop into local shops to meet artisans and taste liqueurs made from century-old recipes, pizza made in a special wood-burning oven, wines from local vineyards, handmade bruschetta, local pecorino cheese, and charcuterie. Join us and you’ll eat and drink like a real Italian!
