      About this trip

      This seven-day journey takes us from coast to coast focusing on the exquisite food and wine of not one, but two incredible southern regions.  This southern Italy food tour brings you face-to-face with local food aficionados and experts. You'll enjoy hands-on cooking classes, visits to olive groves and fig factories, and wine tastings in charming medieval villages. Highlights include cooking with a local celebrity chef, a private tour of the Amaro Lucano Museum with a mixology class, and a farewell dinner in the stunning city of Matera.
