The Heart of Italy- Small Group 7-Day Food and Wine Tours in Tuscany, Umbria, Lazio, and Sicily!
Kitchen Table Travel hosts small group culinary adventures in the heart of Italy, exploring the golden winding roads of Tuscany, the green heart of Umbria, rich with culinary traditions and beauty, the olive groves and charming medieval villages of Lazio, and Sicily, warm enough to be a part of the heart, with its sun drenched shores and hospitality.
We curate private tours, group tours, and self-guided tours using our incredible network of artisans, chefs, farmers, and locals. We're able to customize tours for your group and are happy to work with you to create your perfect Italian holiday. No two tours are alike because they are created with our individual guests in mind. Because our groups are small we're able to be more flexible on our trips and allow for some spontaneity!
Some tour highlights can include:
-Professional-level cooking classes with experts
-Olive Oil tours and tastings with a world-renowned expert
-Nature and foraging walks with an environmentalist
-Visits to small, award-winning wineries
-Seasonal and regional specialty foods
-Visits to local markets
-Seeing a working farm to learn how it operates to sustain all staff members and animals
-Cultural and historical tours in cities and villages
-Stay in a 15th century palazzo and agriturismos
-Dinners cooked by private chefs
-Foraging for Truffles and learning what makes them so special and delicate
-Walking food and history tours
Private and group tours require a minimum of five guests to book. Our group tours' costs include most meals (about 90%), accommodations, activities, and transportation while on the tour. We do not cover airfare or airport transfers or hotel room service/amenities.
Responsible tourism is important to us and we mostly travel in the off seasons and visit smaller villages and less populated areas. We support local economies wherever we can by patronizing the local businesses. We leave no trace behind and treat the land and people with respect.
