Gastronomic Delights of Emilia-Romagna & Piemonte

14 DAYS, 13 NIGHTS

Savoring a delicious plate of pasta with truffles shaved atop all washed down with a large gulp of Barolo in an Italian piazza - could one wish for a better afternoon than this? If you have a real love for rich and mouth-watering foods, then this Italian tour through Piemonte and Emiglia-Romana is calling your name. 

 

Piemonte, the land of hazelnuts, truffles, and Barolo wine, is a food lover’s paradise. Every year, the small town of Alba hosts its annual Truffle Festival to mark the start of the truffle season. While there are many types of truffles, it's the White Piemonte Truffle that reigns dominant here. Where you can find great truffles, you’re sure to find great wines and the same is true for the Piemonte region. Here, you’ll taste some of the greatest Italian wines, the Barolo & Barbaresco red wines. 

 

Between Piemonte and the Emilia-Romagna capital of Bologna, you’ll find the towns of Modena, Parma, and Reggio Emilia, the home to the trifecta of Italian delicacies  - Modenese balsamic vinegar, Parma ham, and Parmigiano Reggiano. We’ll also stop by the Ferrari museum and take part in some fun high-speed racing aboard a Ferrari race car!

 

Bologna marks another important capital of food and architecture on the Italian peninsula. Home to bolognese sauce and mortadella, Bologna is well-known for its culinary treasures. Here you’ll take part in a special pasta-making class from a certified expert Italian grandma. We’ll also visit the oldest university in Europe, the University of Bologna with its famous UNESCO-certified porticoes. 

 

Loosen your belts - this adventure is for the ultimate foodie who wants to experience the best of Italian cuisine!
