If you're looking for something to do while staying at Tuscan villas this summer, you should check out the Tuscan Sun Festival, which runs from June 11-18. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the celebration and is sure to be one of the most sophisticated summertime events in all of Europe, as master chefs, world-renowned musicians and Academy Award-winning actors take to the stage to showcase their art forms.
Along with singer Tony Bennett and actor John Malkovich, the festival will bring together incredible classical and operatic musicians who have sold out performances worldwide. During the week-long event, travelers staying in luxury rentals can reserve a table with Italy's most decorated chefs, including Davide Scabin, whose dishes perplex even the most sensitive palates with layers of decadent flavors.
If you prefer looking at Italian art, the Tuscan Sun Festival will also include an extensive exhibition of Impressionist works, including John Singer Sargent and John La Farge. The show has been curated by Francesca Bardazzi and Carlo Sisi in commemoration of the 500th anniversary of Amerigo Vespucci, the famed Italian explorer.
