Italy is one of the most endearing countries in the world. With its majestic Dolomites mountain range, shimmering northern lakes and rolling Tuscan countryside, Italy offers great natural beauty and diversity. When you combine this with its stunning art, architecture and outstanding food and wine, you’re looking at a very enticing travel destination.
There are few Australian travellers who haven’t enjoyed either a holiday in Tuscany, an exploration along the Amalfi Coast or a stay on Lake Como, sparking an enduring love affair with Italy. However there are parts of Northern Italy not so frequented by international travellers, so we’ve developed a unique culinary, cultural and active itinerary led by our Director Jennifer Wilkinson.
This 13 day Italian food, wine and walking tour commences in Milan and visits Bergamo, the medieval city of art and architecture, the Franciacorta wine region, Lake Garda, the magnificent Dolomites and the charming Prosecco region. Food and wine will be an integral part of this journey, where we stay at a number of Relais and Chateaux properties, dine in some of the finest restaurants in the region as well as some of the most simple and authentic. Stunning walks will neutralise the culinary indulgences and allow us to absorb the natural beauty of each destination.
We are taking a maximum of 12 guests on this inimitable journey.
