    Abbondanza Toscana courses and tours take you to the heart and soul of Tuscany and put you in touch with our friends and neighbors . . . the kind and warm hearted Tuscans who define simple yet gracious living. Wander the villa's wooded neighborhood and its olive groves, enjoy views of the valley's vineyards and taste their evocative wines.

    Every course, whether it is cooking or photography, wine tours or painting, shopping or gardens, is made richer by excursions to markets and wineries, shepherds and olive mills, Renaissance gardens and Romanesque churches, traditional osterias serving regional foods and ristorantes offering "la nuova cucina."

    Discover the essence of Tuscany!

    Wander the estate paths through olive groves, vineyards and chestnut forests . . . discover why the "cucina povera" of Tuscan farms is appearing on menus presented by top chefs worldwide . . . listen to a Puccini aria in the Duomo . . . delight in hands-on, up-to-your-elbows cooking lessons in a rustic professional kitchen . . . talk to winemakers about their hopes for this yearís vintage . . . make your own limoncello . . . discover polenta and chocolate are great together!
