Why our trip is different:

  • Let the skills and experience of chef and journalist Andrea Oschetti and philosopher, food explorer and sommelier Gaetano Saccoccio open the doors to the best Italy has to offer
  • Access people and places off the tourist track, and see Italy at its most authentic
  • Picnic in the splendid forest of an hermitage
  • Relax in the luxury of abbeys, country manors and historical palaces throughout your trip
  • Learn to cook Tuscan cuisine within the walls of a private mansion dating back to the 16th-century 
  • Live like the Romans do, and see the city on the back of a Vespa
