Gourmet Tours| Italy
Italy is also known as Bella Italia, home of la dolce vita, a beautiful land of incredible food and wine, and friendly locals. Just saying the name of the country conjures up vibrant images: rolling hills, plates of delicious pasta, bottles of exquisite wines, wheels of cheese and legs of savory cured ham. Our Italy Country Manager Daniele, an expert Italian guide has put together several week-long explorations of some of his homeland's signature gastronomy. All of these tours will bring all of those images of Italy to life. You'll have the opportunity to meet the producers, custodians and purveyors of gourmet food and wine, and of course you'll get to sample everything. We'll take care of all the details, and you'll stay in charming farmhouses and chateaus, with almost every meal and tasting experience included in the price. These tours are offered on set dates, as listed below, at set prices, or on request for dates that suit you, with the per-person price based on the size of your party.
When you arrive at the airport, your expert Italian guide will meet you and lead you on a journey of gastronomic delights over the next 7 days. Whichever tour you take you will be tasting the very best each region has to offer and finding out why these regions are renowned worldwide for their fabulous gastronomy. Alongside the foodie delights on the menu you will also experience many aspects of Italian culture during your trip.

What I love about Gourmet Tours...
“Traveling with Daniele is like being in a food & travel TV show. All those cool places presenters like Anthony Bourdain or Jamie Oliver go, finding out how stuff is made, meeting people who love what they do? That's what it's like. With a side order of art, history and culture, because you can't be eating and drinking all the time, can you?”
