Why Book a Hosted Tour?
In our opinion, there is no better way to experience the true Italy than on a food and wine tour. And when it comes to food and wine, you aren’t limited by geography – we offer cooking tours of Southern Italy and cooking tours of Northern Italy – and you won’t lack “insider knowledge,” we know all the best places!
Italian food, and some might say a good deal of the Italian culture, gets its character from the skillful pairing of wine and food. For this reason, we are pleased to offer hosted, week-long Italian tour packages that do not focus on the “big three” (Rome, Florence, Venice), but rather less explored, less well-known areas of Puglia, Sicily, Piemonte, the Veneto, Emilia-Romagna and Liguria. These are regions famous for their “mouth-watering” products and Italian hospitality.
Our returning travelers find that these tours are a great way to experience a new side of Italy for the first time. New visitors to Italy often choose to add-on a hosted tour to a longer trip in order to “get the full Italian experience.” Finally, some travelers simply make a few small revisions to one of these tours and turn them into non-hosted, private vacations much like we offer for tailor-made vacations.
Whatever your timeframe or knowledge of Italy, a Hosted Tour is an experience you won’t soon forget!
