Like cooking, when it comes to epicurean travel, keep it simple yet inspiring. Bound for the center of Italy’s culinary heartbeat, savor the fresh regional ingredients (and a dash of Nonna's kitchen wisdom) that form the basis of timeless and trend-setting staples.

Days 1-2: Rome

Your journey begins in Rome, where a rich culture rivals the abundant pasta and wine. Follow your taste buds through the historic streets for your first lesson in authentic Italian cuisine.

Days 3-4: San Gimignano

Hidden in the Tuscan hills, discover the medieval city of San Gimignano. Sip and sample the region's best vino - and the divine dishes that complement it - during a stay at a family-run winery.

Days 5-6: Bologna

The birthplace of bolognese sauce and home to Gelateria Dondoli, winner of the Ice Cream World Championship, a stop in Bologna couldn't be more appetizing.

Day 7: Venice

Apart from winding canals and romantic gondolas, the allure of Venice lies in its belief that one meal is never enough. Embrace the cicchetti culture, indulging in ample Italian-style tapas.

Day 8: Marca Trevigiana & Venice

In Marca Trevigiana, the locals’ needs are simple: produce and Prosecco. Experience the best of both alongside a bounty of fresh, local mountain cheeses and artisan salami.

Day 9: Venice

Finalize your foodie transformation with a morning trip to Rialto Market, a prime location for fresh and flavorful ingredients. Shuffle past the seafood in search of a final pastry and cappuccino.
