Learn Italian in Italy's Greatest Gastronomic Treasure, Emilia-Romagna
The people of Emilia-Romagna, the Italian province where Ferraris are built, are very unusual! If they want to make a car, they build a Ferrari, a Maserati and a Lamborghini. If they want to make a motorcycle, they build a Ducati. If they want to make cheese, they invent Parmigiano Reggiano. If they want to make a lot of spaghetti, they found Barilla. They do not stop, they do not wait, they do not tire; and when there's something they want to create, they do it well and, moreover, they make it beautiful, and useful to everyone.
Italian and cookery classes, food, wine and sightseeing with an experienced teacher in Emilia-Romagna, a region of northern Italy home of some of the finest food traditions around the world.
Products like Parmigiano, Prosciutto di Parma and balsamic vinegar all originated in this region which has as well beautiful landscapes, wonderful towns and villages dotted across mountains, hills, planes, and coasts. Its most iconic city is Bologna, famous for the most ancient University in Europe and for the 40 kilometres of porticoes in town.
Emilia-Romagna is definitely the ideal place to have an authentic Italian experience because it’s as beautiful as more famous destinations but not as packed with tourists and other English speakers.
