Local Experiences Await

Italian food tours are known for tantalizing taste buds with expertly prepared dishes by skilled chefs using time-honored recipes and locally sourced ingredients. While these experiences are unforgettable, it’s best to go beyond just tasting to immerse yourself fully in the culinary culture.

Why not learn how to cook these dishes yourself? At Italy Luxury Tours, most food and wine tours in Italy include cooking demonstrations and lessons from seasoned chefs. Plus, you get to experience picking and harvesting ingredients to appreciate the labor and care of making Italian food, including traditional pasta dishes, desserts, cured meats, olive oil, and cheeses.
