Starting in April, travelers can take culinary tours of different regions in Italy, giving them the opportunity to try some of the country's greatest foods.
The focus of these tours is to showcase the many communities that use only traditional and sustainable products. These adventures last approximately two weeks.
"During the tours, participants will not only discover delightful food and wines but also the most interesting art, history, culture and natural landscapes of the regions," states the company providing the experiences.
Sites visited on some of the adventures include the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, the Duomo Cathedral in Turin and the UNESCO World Heritage Site San Gimignano.
In Piedmont and the Italian Riviera, travelers will get to sample wines from the Barolo vineyards and Montebore cheese. Further south, in Tuscany & Umbria, tourists will try blood sausage, salted fish roe, dried figs and Pienza Pecorino cheese.
Group sizes range from 10 to 25 people, all of whom travel together in luxury motorcoaches around the regions. As they travel from city to city, they'll also have the opportunity to sample many dishes at some of the best restaurants in Italy.
