About Our Tours
What makes Curata tours different?
Living like an Italian is what these culinary adventures are all about - years of travel through all 20 regions of Italy have allowed our team to design a culinary stroll that will take even the most inexperienced traveler comfortably "off the beaten path" to enjoy the Italy that tourists rarely get to experience. Each trip is designed for travelers to experience these rich cultural traditions through cuisine. Travel is known to educate the mind and soul - we believe it should educate the palate as well!
Our small group tours (average group size: 18 people) are not just a memorable vacation, but are full of authentic experiences, friendships, and a reverence for the Italian artisans and food traditions of each region we visit. Each excursion and meal is planned with care to show you the authentic Italy that we love so much.
What is included?
Scheduled transfers, lodging, all meals (unless otherwise noted in your selected tour), excursions, cooking classes, and private transportation while in Italy, are all included in the price of the trip.
What is not included: airfare, travel insurance, and transportation/food/bar costs outside of the trip itinerary, gratuities for your guides (at your discretion) and any souvenirs or products you might want to bring home!
Who is going?
Our tours are curated for travelers with a passion for all things culinary! Those who are interested in meeting the artisans who create amazing products and gaining an understanding of the traditions that drive this amazing food culture.
Our guests should have an open and curious mind, enjoy traveling with a small group, and be comfortable and sure on their feet on various terrains.
Each tour will have 2-3 tour directors with them during the duration of the trip.
Where will we be staying?
We try to incorporate a mix of charming family-run hotels, agriturismi, and even some small boutique hotels. When choosing a hotel, we are focused not only on cleanliness and comfort, but also proximity to activities (how quickly we can you to the food!), stunning views, or putting you right in the middle of the action in a bustling town. All accommodations include a private bath.
