The world is your oyster.
This saying, and G Adventures Local Living tours, perfectly combines two of life’s greatest pleasures: travel and food. If you feel that way too, then G Adventures Local Living tours might be your cup of tea (We’ll stop now). Their Local Living programs set you up with a central home base – say a Tuscan farmhouse or charming Agriturismo – and then help you discover how the locals live with the help of a connected CEO who knows the area.
This deep dive into local culture opens the door to a quicker understanding of place. Itineraries are a loose-fit, flexible and customizable with numerous options based on the elements of the destination that drew you to it. You’ll not only experience the pleasure of contemplating the rolling hills of Emilia Romagna but get to savour their famous Culatello di Zibello DOP ham. Or dine al fresco in San Gimignano on the pasta you helped make. Or hike the Path of the Gods on the heavenly Amalfi Coast then toast your efforts with a Limoncello.
Even though you stay in one location on Local Living trips for the majority of your holiday, the experience practically guarantees that you get to take it home with you for the rest of your life. Here’s a look at just a few of the tempting locations on offer where you’ll discover how life is truly lived:
Tuscany San Gimignano: If you’ve ever wanted to forge a deeper bond with a destination, this is your chance. Centred in San Gimignano, this Local Living adventure places you in the heart of central Tuscany. You’re free to explore the town, visit vineyards, discover medieval highlights, or embrace your inner artist wandering the Tuscan countryside.
Coastal Tuscany: See a side of Italy that tourists seldom witness on this intimate seven-day tour. Explore the streets of Capalbio, a remarkably well-preserved medieval town on the coast. Then immerse yourself into Tuscany’s local culture, staying overnight in a quaint villa, sampling homemade olive oil pressed from olives grown in nearby groves, and exploring the nearby island of Monte Argentario in the Tyrrhenian Sea. Hitting destinations off the tourist trail, you’ll truly explore Tuscany like a local.
