Time around Tuscany is a young and dynamic agency of tour organising that offers new and unknown paths outside the explored touristic routes.
Our favourite itineraries touch the undiscovered and the less celebrated sites of Tuscany, Umbria Rome and the Amalfi coast, regions that always have exciting places and experiences to live.
Time around Tuscany is a Gourmet Tour Operator!
We pay a particular attention to the food and wine world, to the exploration of the local and typical culinary specialties, and to the knowledge of the wine world, thanks to the experience of the founder.
It is for this reason that together with the classical itineraries of artistic, cultural and religious interest we always have several proposals for the food and wine lovers, itineraries for discovering hidden culinary gems
and wines never tasted before.
Exploring Tuscany riding a bicycle without being necessarily an athlete, discovering the beautiful Umbria countryside in Vespa to live the authentic Italian life-style, enjoying the fantastic weather and the unforgettable scenery, are just some of the alternatives that we offer.
Being on holiday you can take the chance to learn new things with joy, tasting wine and guessing the food pairing, improving yourself in Italian cooking classes and taste what you have prepared together with your “cooking colleagues”. Cheese tastings, pottery hands on classes, visits to the most prestigious Italian wineries with our sommelier...what are you waiting for?
I'm Claudia Cesarino, sommelier with a huge passion for travel, good wine and great food!
My carrier started in the international hospitality industry and event organising at the St. Regis Grand in Rome and it has proceeded in London at Vinopolis, the most famous city and museum of wine.
I have then developped my profession in India where I worked as a wine trainer for the most popular Italian wine company, Marchesi Antinori. In the incredible India my duty was to train the staff of prestigious hotels about wine and I have collaborated for important hotel chains such as Hyatt,, Sheraton, Kempinski, Taj, Oberoi, The Park hotels.
My deep passion for the Italian food and wine tradition has brought me back and finally I opened my small tour operator office in Cortona, Tuscany.
The Tour operator project was born from the desire to collect all the experiences I had around the world to satisfy my clients at the best here, in the heart of Tuscany!
