Destinations to delight
Working with a team of knowledgeable local specialists, Adam will guide you through some of Italy’s most beautiful and iconic cities, towns and villages. From Rome and the historical splendour of the Vatican; travel to the medieval city of Siena and the surrounding Tuscan hills before venturing on to Bologna and the final destination of Venice, Queen of the Adriatic.
Be immersed in the sights and tastes of Italy like never before, as Adam accompanies you on mouth-watering cooking classes, cheese and wine tasting experiences and private tours to hidden gems known only by the locals.
Bursting with Flavour
Go beyond the spectacular beauty of these incredible destinations by enjoying a selection of delicious culinary experiences along the way.
Get to know your host Adam while taking an authentic pizza making class, to be devoured and enjoyed at the first night’s welcome dinner. Sample a traditional Panaforte cake in Siena before learning the art of cocktail making with the Tuscan hills as your backdrop. Visit a vibrant Florence produce market before joining Adam and a local specialist chef to learn how to cook like an Italian. Enjoy dinner with Count Miari Fulcis on his 15th century organic olive oil estate and discover the ancient traditions and flavours of the Italian classics – Chianti, Prosecco and Parmigiano Reggiano cheese. Mark the end of your flavoursome journey with a deliciously fresh, seafood bonanza on the fisherman’s island of Burano.
Experience the rich history and culture of the region with tailored sight-seeing trips guided by Adam and our knowledgeable local specialists. Start your 10-day adventure in the beautiful city of Rome, a UNESCO World Heritage Site filled with spectacular ruins, fountains and monuments. Explore some of the most jaw-dropping architectural wonders that Italy has to offer, such as the magnificent Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican, as well as the Gothic Duomo and Michelangelo’s statue of David in Florence.
The stunning medieval town of San Gimignano will give you a taste of everyday Italian life in the middle ages, followed by two days in the awe-inspiring city of Venice that includes a visit to the bustling St. Mark’s Square, the exquisite Doge’s Palace, a tour of the 11th Century Rialto food market and a private boat trip. Spend each day discovering as much of Italy as you wish or enjoy some time soaking up the views by the 19th century villa pool – the choice is always yours.
Combine Trafalgar’s 72 years of destination expertise with Adam’s knowledge and passion for the food and wine of the region and let us create an Italian holiday that is a true feast for your senses.
