Journey's Truly Unique Approach
This is a special itinerary that will have a wonderful element of cuisine and wine perfectly intertwined through our discovery of "new" places: Asolo, Treviso, Vicenza, Verona, Lake Garda and Bologna. And in Asolo, where we begin, one of our favorite English poets, Mr. Robert Browning, spent part of his life in this city of one hundred horizons. Browning who coined the phrase, "Open my heart and you will see, 'graved inside of it, Italy," found inspiration and harmony in this amazing village - they even named a street after him.
Journey Recommended: 4 to 5 Star Properties in the hearts of the cities.

Journey Cuisine is authentically Italian: Family-owned restaurants farm to table
Journey’s approach to dining is unique in the travel world (just like the regions of Italy). We include Premium Beverages (wine, soda and cocktails) and you choose your dinner from the menu. The Italian chefs and families are proud of their delicious dishes which hail from each of the regions in which Journey travels. From Lombardia and beautiful Lake Como to the Veneto region with Venice all the way through to the Amalfi Coast and Campania, you will enjoy a variety of dishes featuring pasta, seafood combined plates, vegetable inspired contorni and of course family inspired dishes. While in Italy we will enjoy locally grown produce where the concept of nostrale, or home-grown, is so evident.
