1. Cycling in Puglia
Discover Puglia’s distinctive wines, cheeses and pasta, and enjoy some gentle rides in beautiful surroundings, on a foodie cycling holiday
. Our easy-graded Puglia on Two Wheels trip includes a visit to a local ‘caseficio’ to see how local cheeses are made and to sample some for ourselves, including the incredible burrata. You’ll also visit a family-run bakery to try the famous Altamura bread, made from durum flour and used for bruscetta across Italy, and have a wine tasting session.
For those that prefer to stay on two feet, our Taste of Puglia walking trip
is another way to combine the region’s wonderful food with the great outdoors.
2. A taste of Emilia Romagna
Emilia Romagna is a region of exquisite food. This is the birthplace of parma ham, parmesan cheese, balsamic vinegar, tortellini and Lambrusco wine, to name a few. When we’re not sampling this region’s many culinary delights on the A Taste of Emilia Romagna
walking trip, we’re exploring the architectural gems of Bologna, Modena and Ravenna, and discovering the canals of the region’s ‘little Venice’, Comacchio.
3. Lake Como Walking
Dine on the banks of Lake Como overlooking spectacular views of shimmering topaz water and verdant forested hillsides soaring into the clear blue skies on our 8-day walking trip in Italy. Feast on the catch of the day to replenish the energy reserves and don't miss out on the delicious fish risotto - a local speciality. Wander through lush vineyards and chestnut groves on your way to the ancient village of Aurogna and soak tired legs in the hotel's lakeside swimming pool as the sun sets behind the mountainous horizon.
4. Wine Trails of Classic Tuscany
Combine the iconic landscapes of southern Tuscany with the region’s excellent food and wine. Walk through the vineyards of the Chianti Hills and along ancient pilgrimage routes, with stops to taste local wines. Take in the gothic architecture of medieval Siena, stroll the streets of beautiful Florence, and sip beautiful Montepulciano in an underground wine cellar.
5. Classical Sicily
Renowned for its fresh seafood, mouth-watering cheeses and fine wines, Sicily packs a punch with its
flavours as well as its history. Visit the beautiful amphitheatre in Taormina, Agrigento’s Valley of the Temples, the hilltop medieval town of Erice and Palermo’s Botanical Gardens on this week-long introduction to Sicily. There’s also the chance to go up Mt Etna by cable car. Evenings are left free to explore the island’s fantastic dining options – your tour leader is on hand to give their top local recommendations.
