Save €800 per Person on a 9 day Food and Culture Journey in Italy

Written By Chantelle Kern

Deal: €800 Euros off per Person on Italy’s Epicurean Journey itinerary for the May 19-27, 2019 guaranteed departure.


Experience all of Italy wrapped-up into one region with a journey that will take you from savouring Slow-food on sun-kissed rolling hills to soaking up the sunshine by the seaside. Enjoy a relaxing vacation by unpacking once and unwinding with 9 days located just steps away from one of Italy’s most beautiful piazzas (town square). This itinerary will focus on introducing you to the most iconic Italian experiences.  You will meet the vintners of our territory that have etched their story in land through award-winning wines, and their passion that continues to be passed on from generation-to-generation. While we explore the territory, you will be introduced to the Italian trifecta: Food, Wine, and People, allowing you to get in touch with the culture of our territory, and learn some culinary secrets along the way.  Your hands-on cooking classes will be set in the back-drop of a 17th century abbey, not only exposing you to local cuisine and recipes handed down from Nonna (Grandma), but also to the Old-world charm and pure rhythm of “La Dolce Vita”. To round out your trip you will be joined by a Fully-bilingual, 100% Italian, 100% local guide with an International culinary resume that will ensure your vacation is nothing but spectacular. Travel the road less-taken and enjoy the in-depth experience of authentic Italy that you have been craving.
