Our program

Italian Culinary Adventures is a week filled with extraordinary regional foods, cooking classes, tasting tours, and cultural experiences

You’ll be doing much more than pulling up a chair and enjoying memorable meals while savoring fine regional wines. To fully immerse yourself in this remarkable week of gastronomic pleasures, you’ll need to be comfortable being on your feet and on the move for an extended time. Together we will visit many sites you can only reach by walking, including private tours of historical museums, local markets, culinary meccas, and buildings built centuries before ADA requirements were instituted.
