A journey to discover Italy's excellent food and wine
Food and wine tourism: a new way of travelling that is becoming increasingly popular with travellers who are eager to discover the local and regional culinary traditions in order to understand even better the customs and origins of a specific place and the bond between the locals and the fruits of their land. Giving people the opportunity to discover the typical products of the various regions of Italy is our speciality.Platinum by Albatravel Group guarantees comprehensive services designed according to customer needs, with the specific goal of creating an offer capable of meeting their expectations and desires, so that our agency can adapt solutions that suit all tastes and interests.
The food and wine tours that can be organised in Italy are as many as its resorts, given the extensive wealth of local products that our lands have to offer: Platinum by Albatravel Group offers tours throughout the country from north to south, allowing you to discover the excellent products of each region. Some of the options include trips dedicated to tasting the finest Italian wines, as well as itineraries among the beautiful Chianti hills cultivated with vineyards and olive groves, in the area between Florence and Siena. A trip not to be missed is that in the land of Prosecco, along the "strada del vino" (wine road) that winds through Conegliano and Valdobbiadene, to the north of the province of Treviso, where the land offers a one-of-a-kind product, or in Emilia, where another excellent Italian product is produced, the balsamic vinegar of Modena in all its extraordinary variations. With a trip to the south of Italy, instead, visitors will have the chance to discover the limoncello of Sorrento, the delicious sweet liqueur obtained from the peel of the lemons grown exclusively in this area.
The food and wine tours that you can organise with Platinum by Albatravel Group can also involve taking part in events or trade fairs dedicated to specific products: in this way, enthusiasts of the finest tuber in the world will certainly appreciate the ancient Fiera del Tartufo Bianco, held between October and November in Alba, featuring many events to learn more about this sophisticated fruit of the earth; those who have a sweet tooth, instead, should not miss the Fiera del Cioccolato(International Chocolate Exhibition), which takes place every year in October in Perugia.
Historic markets are another way of finding out about the local food and wine traditions, in fact these places still preserve the true authentic soul of each city: for example, we offer trips to the historic market of Rialto in Venice, which, every morning, comes to life with fish, flower and vegetable stalls, or a trip to the San Lorenzo market in Firenze, where you can also find tiny shops selling local specialities, such as olive oil, wine, cheeses and cured meats.
These are just some of the many opportunities that Platinum by Albatravel Group has to offer. We are able to organise any kind of themed tour with the features requested by our customers, whether they are travelling alone, in pairs or in groups.
