Food Tours in Italy

For a full list of our food tours in Italy with dates and prices, please scroll down.

The very mention of the name “Italy” brings thoughts of food: pizza, pasta, olives, sun-dried tomatoes, mozzarella, prosciutto… The list of quintessential ingredients and dishes is endless, and so is the astonishing regional variety that characterises Italian cuisine: each and every village, town, province and region fiercely proclaims the supremacy of their particular delicacies, each of which is based on a local harvest and production of oils, fruits, vegetables, nuts, grains, pulses, meats, fish and seafood.

This terrific abundance of fresh produce, and the unusual combination of an endless culinary inventiveness with a staunch attachment to centuries-old recipes, has created one of the great cuisines of the world. Of course, no meal would be complete without a glass of local wine, perhaps a tumbler of local liqueur, and the obligatory cup of intensive, rich and hot espresso.

Each of our tours in Italy pays great attention to the gastronomic offerings, with wonderful lunches and dinners planned throughout, together with an occasional wine-tasting, and plenty of time to sample a few of the local delicacies during our walks. Our Gastronomic tours take full advantage of the magnificent opportunities available, and introduce you to the local producers themselves, allowing you to see how they make their culinary marvels, how to choose the produce that it requires, how the varied dishes can best be paired with the local wines, and how entire meals can be created from the most innocuous of ingredients.
