Overview

Book
Italians are the masters of creating simple dishes that sing with flavour. Regional, seasonal and as fresh as possible, Italy’s cuisine is hearty, satisfying and made with heart. Inspired by the kitchens of the nonna, Italy’s food is authentic and surprising – pizza and pasta are only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the diverse array of unforgettable food you’ll find on this adventure that travels from Venice to Rome via San Gimignano and Bologna.

Highlights

    • Italy is a foodie's paradise, but as a visitor it can be hard to escape the tourist traps. Your local leaders will give you an insider's guide to this epicurean wonderland
    • This trip takes in some of the titans of regional Italian cuisine – Rome (Lazio region), Tuscany, Emilia Romagna and the Veneto

    • Had too much of the good life? Shake things up by walking part of the pilgrim's route, the glorious Via Francigena

The tour was eventful, educational, it showcased the amazing food culture of Italy, gave me a chance to experience Italian cuisine in a hands on manner and also allowed me to visit some beautiful regions of Italy. As a trainer and assessor in the hospitality industry, this tour was exactly what I was looking for.

This tour was great. I was a little disappointed that there was not more "hands on" cooking. The tour guide did a great job showing us parts of Italy that we had no idea about nor would have never know about.
