Join us on a 7-day unique Italian sustainable and cultural escorted tour to visit one of the most stunning Italian regions: Le Marche. 

This tour is geared to those who want to live, an immersive Italian culture experiencing “Marchigiana” culture and traditions, and, who want to get to know the food, region and its people. Our hosts and local guides, together with their friends, have put together amazing experiences that combine passion, beautiful places, eco-friendly visits to show you the best of Le Marche by putting you in touch with local communities.

This is a fully escorted tour that will give you the insights into daily life, culture, food, and wine production and will let you discover authentic Italy in a balanced mix of experiences, relax, adventure and learning opportunities.

In keeping with our approach to support the local economy, we employ local guides that love and know everything (or almost:-)) about Le Marche like Fabrizio (Italia Sweet Italia founder & Tour guide) for Abruzzo. The tour has been designed by Fabrizio in partnership with local suppliers committed to selecting partners, licensed tour guides and passionate people living and working in Le Marche. The result is a tour that supports small local enterprises and sustainable tourism.

The highlight of this tour is the chance to discover and experience Le Marche, a region of infinite beauty and hidden gems (we know them as “Sleeping Beauties”) in the heart of Italy. You will go back home with life-long memories and with many friends, for sure!
