Frances Mayes Shares 30 Years in Italy with Tauck Guests

Tuscany, Italy

Frances Mayes, the bestselling author of "Under the Tuscan Sun," will share her 30-year experiences in Italy with Tauck guests on selected tours of its "A Week In... Tuscany and Umbria" itinerary.

On select tours in 2023 and 2024, Mayes will join guests in her adopted Tuscan town of Cortona, where the events of her book and its film adaptation took place.

While in Cortona, the Tauck guests will also be taken on a guided walking tour and tuck into a lunch prepared by Michelin-starred chef Silvia Baracchi, a close friend of Mayes.

The tour starts at USD $4,790 per person, plus airfare, and accommodates an average of 24 guests.

This year, Tauck is increasing the number of land tour departures with small groups by 35 per cent compared to pre-pandemic levels. The company will offer small group departures on approximately 75 land journeys across various regions.

Other experts, such as filmmaker Ken Burns and royal chef Carolyn Robb, have also shared their insights with Tauck guests in the past.

More information can be found on the operator's website.
