A voyage exploring Italian regional cuisine

Culinary Tours Italy

A taste of the best Italy has to offer!

Italy wouldn’t be Italy without its one and only gastronomic heritage, and a culinary food and wine tour is one of the most satisfying ways to explore Bella Italia. Rather than large group tours and touristy cooking vacations, we have designed luxurious gourmet routes just for you by private chauffeured Mercedes that blend wine tasting, art, scenery, gourmet experiences and your own private cooking classes in charming venues. Our Culinary "foodie" Tours in Italy include experiences such as VIP private vineyard visits, truffle hunts with the “trifulau”, short cooking classes just for you, olive oil visits and tastings, ultra gourmet dining as well as meals in authentic Trattorias off the beaten path, and of course luxurious accommodation in places of tremendous charm. Taste and make real Tagliatelle Bolognese in Bologna, sip vintage wines in a spectacular Italian wine estate, experience real Buffalo Mozzarella like you have never tasted... .let us organize the luxury food and wine tour of a lifetime for you in Italy.
