Why We Love This Deal

With this members-only experience, head to Tuscany for a culinary journey at Villa Il Patriarca, a 19th-century villa that has been restored to a luxurious and romantic hotel amidst the Tuscan hills. Not only will you dine at its famed on-site restaurant, but you'll also learn how to cook a truly Tuscan meal with its Michelin-starred chef.

And, because you're a Travelzoo club member, you’ll get an exclusive upgrade to the hotel’s premier suite, which would normally cost you an extra $600.

Note: To keep the cooking experience personalized, the offer is limited. While summer and fall stays this year and next are included, only two or three rooms are available each day. Once you purchase your voucher, please make your reservation as quickly as possible.
