Experience your perfect italy

Culinary Adventures to Italy




Culinary Adventures to Italy was founded with a vision to transform the way you travel to Italy. The objective is not to focus on quantity, but quality tourism.

The company offers native expertise, individual attention with family-like travel, small groups only (never larger than 12) and relaxed pace with a mix of fun, adventure, education and relaxation. All our tours are also available for private travel, independent travel or privately by forming your own exclusive group.


Led by native Italian cookbook author Francesca Montillo, Lazy Italian Culinary Adventures offers curious and hungry travelers the opportunity to travel to Italy to experience authentic cuisine, spectacular wine and beautiful sights.

The week-long adventures all showcase cooking classes with local instructors, winery visits, market stops, experiences with producers of artisanal products, tastings and other activities that promote local cuisine and culture. As natives, we are able to offer the authenticity that your trip to Italy requires. Our goal is to connect travelers to the charm of Italy in the most authentic way possible.

Our philosophy revolves around four main principles:

  • Supporting local communities by showcasing carefully selected suppliers, vendors and family-run establishments
  • Embracing local culture and traditions
  • Promoting destinations off then eaten path as much as possible
  • Sponsoring seasonality that promote regions in their peak ideal season
