    Tuscan Feast

Alberti’s masterpiece palace, the Latini family’s restaurant and winery offers the original flavors of Tuscany. Frommer’s writes: Under hundreds of hanging prosciutto ham hocks, the waiters try their hardest to keep a menu away from you and serve instead a filling, traditional set meal with bottomless wine. This usually kicks off with ribollita and pappa al pomodoro or penne strascicate (in a ragù mixed with cream). If everyone agrees on the arrosto misto, you can get a table-filling platter heaped high with assorted roast meats. Finish off with a round of cantucci con vin santo for everyone.
    Cost includes round-trip transfers if hotel is not in walking distance. Tuscan Feast includes wine and water.
