Private Italy - A Tailor-Made Gastronomic Journey to the home of Slow Food

Private Journey



days from


Italy, Oh Italy - land of la Vita Bella! Where style and flair live next to Michelangelo and Bellini. Where ancient Roman ruins stand next to Renaissance churches. Where picturesque hilltop towns look over verdant vineyards. The land where good food and wine are a way of life.
This tailor-made privately guided holiday through Italy will take you from the capital Rome to Florence, into the Val d’Orcia, Bologna, Modena and Parma. On the way you sample espresso, authentic pizza bianca and Roman street food, master the art of pizza-making, taste outstanding wines, learn to make authentic cantuccini, explore local food markets, watch paste being made before your eyes and learn about the art of crafting balsamic vinegar and Parma's prized culatello salami.
As with all our private tours, this sample itinerary can be completely tailored to create the perfect journey of discovery for you.
