Italians Do it Better: Wine, Food and Culture Tours around Italy

02 Feb, 2016

Pizza, Pasta, Prosecco are some of my favourite things and they all happen to come from Italy.  There is no doubt that when it comes to wine and food travel, Italians do it better than most. There are few places in the world where you get as much variety of wines, cuisine and culture. As the new holiday season is about to start in Europe, we have added even more tours for you to enjoy in 2016. There are also new wineries ready to welcome you all around Italy. From boutique places to stay such as Venissa, near magical Venice to the Tuscan hills and our exclusive Chianti wine bleding experience at Viticcio, there is something for everyone to choose from.

As I plan my next trip to Puglia, I wanted to share with you some of my favourite spots around Italy. Brought to you from Puglia, Tuscany, Sicily and Veneto, I hope you love these as much as I do.
