If you’ve ever dreamed of sipping crisp wine and sampling farm-fresh cheese on the Italian countryside, this experience is for you. It’s a 10-day luxury culinary escape to Rome, Siena, Florence, and Tuscany.
Begin your culinary adventure at Campo de Fiori market, where you’ll encounter a bright display of Italy’s colorful produce. Then head to a historic bakery for some typical roman pizza “Taglio al forno” and suppli (fried rice balls). Taste authentic aged parmesan and fine balsamic vinegar.
Then, tour two different wineries in Siena, with lunch in between, and you may even enjoy a lovely Tuscan picnic dinner on the countryside. Explore local dairy farms where you can taste fresh, wholesome ingredients like local Pecorino cheese.
Learn how to prepare a Tuscan meal in a small group cooking class, then venture into the Chianti region where you can taste the area’s famous wines and olive oil. Then, of course, no tour of Italy would be complete without a visit to the Emilia-Romagna region, where you can visit Bologna, a city for which the famous Bolognese sauce is named. This tasting tour of local sauces, cheeses, wine, and ingredients is a sensory experience you won’t soon forget.
