First And Only Tuscan Cigar Tour

The culture, cuisine and cigars in one of Italy’s most beautiful regions
28 August to 7 September 2015

Ten days of total enjoyment of the Toscano cigar and other gourmet vices. As we follow the natural history of the cigar from the tobacco harvest at Sansepolcro to the cigar factory of Lucca, our guests will indulge in Chianina beef steak, white truffles, Chianti Classico, craft beers, Lucca olive oil, and guided tastings of Toscano cigars. Cultural high points include the frescoes of Piero della Francesca in his birthplace of Sansepolcro and the charming town of Arezzo; the Castello of Vicopisano designed by Brunelleschi; a concert of music by Puccini at a magnificent frescoed church in Lucca and visits to the house of his birth in Lucca and his villa at Torre del Lago. Small group (maximum 12 people).

The excellence of Tuscany

  • Art & culture
  • Masterpieces of the Renaissance and modern times

The tour was devised by Heather Jarman of Sapori e Saperi Adventures in collaboration with Antonella Giusti of the Congrega dei Fumatori Indipendenti (Society of Independent Smokers). We support limited responsible smoking and drinking. Since Heather founded Sapori e Saperi (flavours & knowledge) in 2006, it has gained a reputation for taking its guests to electronically invisible artisans, where they meet authentic Italians, participate in artisan food and craft activities and discover an Italy they never knew existed.
