FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Experience An Immersive Culinary Tour of Italy

There are few gastronomic regions in the world that rival Emilia-Romagna. Located in the northern part of Italy, this area offers a wealth of culinary delights. Its fertile soil is ideal for cultivating prized ingredients like Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese and prosciutto di Parma – not to mention one of the finest wines in the world. The region is also well known for its rich traditions of quality food production.  Perhaps its most famous export is authentic balsamic vinegar. If your balsamic wasn’t made in Modena, then it’s not the real deal!

To this day, many of Emilia-Romagna’s cities are still surrounded by vineyards and olive groves that produce incredible local wines and sumptuous oils. By living off the land, the Emilia-Romagnesi have perfected their cuisine over hundreds of years.

Italian Culinary Adventures takes you on your gourmet tour of Emilia-Romagna, featuring the best food and wine Italy has to offer. The region’s gastronomic excellence can be attributed to its rich history of artisanship – a legacy that dates back before Roman times. Our hosts have been traveling to the region for years, fueled by a passion for the unique history and culture that characterize the incredible food.

Preparing for an Italian Culinary Tour

Once you’ve booked an Italian culinary tour with Italian Culinary Adventures, it’s time to start preparing. Being away from home for one week requires some planning. Especially when you are in a country you’ve never visited. Be sure you pack the following in preparation for your culinary tour in Modena Italy:

  • Power adapters for all of your chargers
  • A pocket USB charger for your phone
  • An umbrella
  • Comfortable walking shoes
  • Clothes appropriate for the weather the time of year you visit Italy
  • An open mind, heart, and mouth!

What Can You Bring Home from Italy?

No trip to Italy is complete without bringing home something to commemorate it, especially if you can bring home a sampling of the food you enjoyed. Since you will be visiting Modena, Bologna, and Parma, make sure you bring home Parmigiano Reggiano cheese and balsamic vinegar. Getting these coveted specialties from their native towns in Emilia-Romagna is the ultimate souvenir.

How to Enjoy Your Italian Culinary Tour

Well, let’s start by saying- this is the easy part! Once you arrive in Italy, the first day will allow you to check into your hotel, relax a bit from the travel, and begin to explore the picturesque city of Modena. The next handful of days will include tantalizing tours through restaurants, markets, farms, wineries, and other areas of the iconic Emilia-Romagna region. This isn’t just a standard food and wine tour. It’s a true cultural immersion experience that will authentically show you the best of everything the region has to offer.

We recommend getting plenty of rest each night and wearing comfortable walking shoes for the tour. We are on our feet for a lot of time, exploring every unique niche of the Emilia-Romagna region.
