Our first-ever public tour was our La Passeggiata to Northern Italy, covering Cinque Terre, Emilia Romagna & Tuscany, and it remains our most popular!
Our 10 days and 9 nights will be filled with excursions along the seaside of the Cinque Terre, exploring the culinary depths of the Emilia Romagna region, and finishing off with four nights in the famous Tuscany region Living like a local is what this experience is all about! We won’t just eat good food (and a LOT of it!) - we will meet the artisans who produce it and get a deep understanding of the traditional that drive this amazing food culture.
You will explore markets and wander with amazement through winding cobblestone streets and experience sights, smells and tastes that you could never imagine!
A private sunset cruise to enjoy the five towns from the water! Enjoy an apericena as the sun sets over the Cinque Terre.
See how Parmigiano-Reggiano, the "king of cheeses," is made, from milk to the final aging process.
Live your best Tuscan life, tasting Chianti and enjoying antipasti in a castle overlooking the rolling Tuscan hills.
Visit the famous 8th generation butcher shop of Dario Cecchini, the Butcher of Panzano, and we'll enjoy a "meat feast" of a dinner in his restaurant!
