Discover why Italy is one of the food capitals of the world. From mouth-watering gelato to classic Chianti wine, Italy has an array of flavors for any taste.
Begin with traditional Roman cuisine, steeped with ancient recipes. Begin with espresso and a scoop of gelato, and top it off with a walking tour, which takes you to coffee shops, gelaterias, and the most famous spot for tiramisu in the city center.
Leave the hustle and bustle for the Tuscan countryside, where you can enjoy a leisurely stay in the heart of wine country. Tour the Relais Corte dei Papi, surrounded by rolling hills and vineyards. Then, take the cooking class the villa offers, to make bruschetta, handmade pasta, bread soup, Florentine beef and dessert.
Finally, wander to the birthplace of the Renaissance and savor the region’s cuisine during a night of dinner and music. Enjoy the hearty comfort food of Florence in a taverna, then walk the cobblestone streets to the Anglican Church for a concert of Neapolitan songs from the operas of great Italian composers.
