The words above say it all.  "Savor your World".   This is what culinary vacations are all about!   So if this idea appeals to you, then you've come to the right place.

Culinary travel has become a very popular form of luxury travel, with France, Italy and Spain being high on the list.  California is also a very desirable destination for food and wine tours.  But you may also like to consider Belgium, Argentina, Chile, and Peru.   

Sometimes it is the simplest of ingredients that make the most memorable dish.   The key lies in the quality and the sun-ripened aspects of the food.  Put that together with superb wine, and you really do have a recipe for the perfect vacation.

Wonderful accommodation awaits you on these tours, making the whole experience a comfortable and pleasurable one.  See all the details here.

Food and Wine Tour Italy

Italian culinary vacations have been inspired by so many TV programs on Italian cooking.  And it's easy to understand why this part of the world inspires so many people.

Tuscany and Umbria are popular locations for culinary tours.  You'll get to see how the locals eat and the joy of sitting at long communal tables.  Family traditions have long placed an emphasis on sharing meal times together.

I remember staying in Assisi once, at a convent bed and breakfast, run by American and Irish nuns.  Not only were the rooms spacious and immaculate (forgive the pun), but the nuns also knew the best places to eat.  To this day, one of the best pizzas I ever had was in a little trattoria tucked away in the back streets.

The olive is also such a key component in Italian cooking...   whether it be as something to accompany a drink or as olive oil.  Olive groves abound in this part of the world, due to the ideal climate of the Mediterranean.
