What You'll Learn and Do...

Discover and taste the great food and wines of Italy! Food and Wine have always been closely linked to Italian Culture and Art. !! Tuscany and Umbria are the regional focus of your trip : you’ll learn the cultural rules of food consumption, the  comparison with the rules of music, dancing and poetry,  the relationships between food and religion, gender, tradition, art, lifestyle. You’ll meet chefs, cookbook authors, and at the same time, you’ll experience the beautiful art works and landscape of Tuscany and Umbria!
